Some Easy Reading for a Saturday Morning

Every week, the VMail Weekend editors step beyond their usual roles as news reporters and bring you the Today’s Read, a mix of interesting and sometimes off-beat features that span the far corners of the vision world. Our aim is to inform and entertain by giving our readers a light, sometimes fun, sometimes unusual read to go with your Saturday morning Joe. So today, we present a compilation of some of our most favorite Today’s Reads. Truth be told, since we are currently in Las Vegas covering Vision Expo West with not a whole lot of down time, this was a stress free choice for a feature, which we hope you will enjoy.

Damaris Raymondi, OD, Spreads the Word About Eye Health

NEW YORK—Damaris Raymondi, OD, is a graduate of the SUNY College of Optometry, who has been practicing in New York since 2015. Born to Peruvian parents, Raymondi has dedicated her professional life to reach people beyond her examination room. A volunteer and advocate for Sights on Health—a non-profit that goes to Peru to provide free medical care and eyecare—Raymondi has also incorporated volunteerism as part of her core practices. For those she cannot be in contact with physically, she has her Instagram page, New York Eye Doc, which educates followers on everything from eye conditions to optometric equipment.
