We’d like to join the current Facebook Challenge asking people to post a picture of a landscape from a place where you’ve been, where the main requirement is that you NOT appear in it. Just a picture, no description. The goal is to fill people’s timelines with landscape photos to give a twist on the situation we’re going through. At High Country Macula, our patients are our inspiration, nothing makes us happier than when patients share pictures of the sights and images that inspire them, and that they value as a result of their preserved and restored eyesight. Join us, post a photo and share with your friends on Facebook. Let’s travel virtually around the world!

If you have been prescribed Elmiron, be sure to alert your Retinologist at High Country Macula.
