Vitamins and Nutraceuticals Are Topic of Oct. 23 ‘Power Hour’

FRANKLIN LAKES, N.J.—Vitamins and nutraceuticals and what optometrists need to know about them are the subject of the Oct. 23r edition of “The Power Hour,” the weekly online radio talk show hosted by Gary Gerber, OD, founder of The Power Practice.

Said Gerber, “Do you prescribe vitamins or other nutraceuticals to your patients? Why or why not? Hear about some very new research that discusses why some supplements may actually be harming your patients. Our show will feature representatives from Zeavision, MacuHealth and Dr. Jerry Sherman, who will be debating and discussing this very important topic. Learn about this compelling research that shows your patients genetic makeup might be the key to what nutraceuticals you should, or shouldn't be prescribing.”

“The Power Hour” radio shows are sponsored by Essilor of America, VSP Global, Optovue and Think About Your Eyes. The show, which can be heard online or by phone every Wednesday night at 9:00 p.m. E.T., is a live discussion vehicle for current practice-building events in optometry, political viewpoints and clinical topics.

Listeners can dial in to “The Power Hour” from any phone at (646) 716-8746 or can listen in from any computer or smart phone. The Power Hour sessions, which launched in 2012, are archived on The Power Practice site. Users can also click to listen to past shows or download segments on iTunes.
