Patient and Doctor Interview
BEB Awareness Week, 2011
Jennifer Sutton and Dr. Yasser Khan
Interviewed on First Look with Neelam Verma
During BEB Awareness Week, 2011, Jennifer Sutton, a local teacher and Dr. Yasser Khan were interviewed by Neelam Verma on Sun News First Look, taped in Toronto, Ontario.
Jennifer's condition had started about six years earlier. “My optometrist said there was nothing wrong with my vision, and prescribed drops for me—but that didn't help,” she says.
As Dr. Khan explained, “Jennifer went through at least three or four doctors, and that's the case for a lot of patients. Many physicians, as well as the general public, are unaware of the condition, and that's why I think it's important that we have a week like this where we can raise awareness, not only amongst patients... but also physicians.”
