Let's talk Low Vision is a 1 hour offering in which issues of importance to
people who are partially sighted will be discussed. The program is a
broadcast of a live telephone conference call held each third Tuesday of the
month, sponsored by the Council of Citizens with Low Vision International,
and hosted by Dr. Bill Takeshita, Chief of Optometry, Center for the
Partially Sighted in Los Angeles. You can participate live in the call on

In this pilot program, you will meet Richard Rueda, President of the Council
of Citizens with Low Vision International. You'll hear is heart-felt
enthusiasm for reaching young people with vision loss, the mission and
history of CCLVI, and how low vision has never slowed Richard down or
detracted from his participation in a full and rich life.
You'll also meet Dr. Bill Takeshita, easily one of the most inspirational
human beings this interviewer has ever encountered. I don't want to give
his story away, but suffice it to say, spending time with Dr. Bill is time
