Q. I'm concerned that I may not be seeing as well as I used to. What should I do?

There are many signs that indicate possible vision loss. Under normal circumstances, do you have trouble recognizing faces of people you know? Is it difficult for you to read, sew, match the color of your clothes? Do lights seem dimmer than they used to?

Vision changes like these could be early warning signs of eye disease. Usually, the earlier your problem is diagnosed, the better your chances are for successful treatment and maintaining your vision.

A sweet 'Homecoming'

It was a dream come true for Candy Repsher Knappenberger.

Last Friday, the local cake decorator and sugar artist not only got to meet her childhood heroes, she created a cake just for them.

A lifelong fan of the 1970s television show "The Waltons," the Lehighton woman was watching reruns on the Gospel Music Channel with her husband a couple weeks ago, when she saw a commercial about a showing of "The Homecoming" at a theater in Jersey City, N.J. to celebrate the 40th anniversary of the Christmas movie.
