Frater Raises Awareness for Glaucoma
DURHAM, N.C. – Frater Gene Grace (Alpha-Omega, UCLA) has been working for years to raise awareness about the dangers of glaucoma and blindness. He is shown to the right speaking to government and scientific officials on the 15th anniversary of the founding of United States China Foundation (USCF). Frater Gene is an internationally known ophthalmologist who, with his programmer Hank Dean, has developed software that places into the hands of anyone with a computer the time-tested and proven tangent-screen for screening, diagnosing and following blind-spots. In all types of glaucoma, blind-spots are foremost in the criteria to be studied in this potentially blinding and all too common condition throughout the world.
His work has spanned the globe including China, Africa, India and numerous Caribbean countries. He has perpetuated the ideal of building a better world through his service in the ophthalmology field. Frater Gene freely offers and encourages the use of his software hoping to make a dent in this horrific disease.
Most of his professional story has been of his private practice as an eye surgeon in Durham, NC after a residency at University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. He worked as a family doctor after finishing medical school at University of Michigan in Ann Arbor, Michigan where he also associated with the TEKE chapter there. Frater Gene's curriculum vitae are listed in his website Prevent Glaucoma Blindness
. He is thankful that the Tekes are aware of glaucoma and accept the caveat that anyone of us can acquire this condition in his lifetime.
He is continuing his work as a teacher, consultant, and glaucoma educator.
