This story is what my Mother used to call a tearjerker. It has all the elements: love, devotion, physical challenge and luckily a happy ending.
Dick Daley and his wife Sally relocated to Vero Beach in 2002 from Redding, Connecticut.
Their Marketing and P.R. Agency specialized in Motorcycle exhibits which toured the United States. This meant that Dick would do a lot of driving in many unfamiliar areas.
Daley noticed that it was getting harder to read the exit signs and made an appointment to have his eyes checked. Since the age of four he had been wear- ing glasses and figured it was time for a stronger prescription. Unfortunately it wasn’t that easy. There were cataracts but they weren’t “mature” enough yet.
Dick’s world became grayer and he was progressively having trouble functioning in it. They consulted more doctors; most refused to do anything besides shaking their heads and saying they wouldn’t or couldn’t touch his case. Sally Daley went on a mission to find a specialist who was capable and could restore Dick’s sight. She searched the internet, phoned research centers and questioned friends. Ultimately she was told that her miracle man was
local and actually practiced in Vero Beach.
Enter Dr. Paul Minotty and the New Vision Eye Center. Dick and Sally knew when they met Dr. Minotty that they were in capable hands. His warmth and confidence in a positive outcome for Dick gave them the courage and peace of mind to continue.
If you have seen a red Porsche fly past you on A1A in Vero Beach it’s Dick Daley. Don’t worry. Due to Dr. Minotty’s surgical skill and his use of the latest technology Dick’s vision is better than 20/20. In fact it’s better than at any other time in his life.
He helps his wife Sally with her boutique real estate firm Daley and Company and has written a book called “Being There: Corvettes, GM & Their Competitors” and recently launched VConcours.com, a website devoted to the best in the automotive world
