Subject of “Open Your Eyes” Documentary
Open Your Eyes follows Dr. Kerry Gelb and Podcaster Chris Maraboli into the future of health. This feature length documentary explores how America became so sick and how optometrists can now see almost 300 diseases in the eye. The film delivers the resounding message that the eye holds the secrets to our hidden health.
The film journeys throughout North America, Europe and explores in contrast, the lively and robust lives of centenarians in Costa Rica, who for the most part have no disease and live beyond 100 years without the major causes of mortality or blindness we come by in the United States.
Interviews with medical experts, PhD’s, researchers and journalists conclusively convey the emerging importance of how eye doctors have a major impact on prevention and why they should stand at the forefront of Health & Wellness.
