Eye examinations are a vital part of ones overall health check up. The eye related problems below are easily detected.
1: Cataracts – Clouding of the lens behind the pupil
2: Glaucoma – High pressure behind the eyes, resulting in optic nerve damage
3: Macular degeneration – Wear and tear to the central part of the retina (back of the eye)
General health problems such as diabetes and high blood pressure can also be detected. We have even detected signs of raised pressure affecting the brain and have been congratulated by the eye specialists at Wigan hospital for the diagnosis and prompt referral.
All diabetic patients will have their pupils dilated using special drops which normally take 20-30 minutes to work. This allows the optician to see into the peripheral part of the retina where diabetic eye disease can start to develop. Diabetic reports are always sent to the patients GP regardless of the findings.
It is well known that poor vision can result in an increased number of falls amongst elderly people. This can commonly lead to serious physical problems which can in turn lead to a loss of independence and lengthy stays in hospital.
We have given a talk to the Warrington falls team demonstrating how different eye conditions can affect a persons vision which they found very useful. We are committed to trying to reduce the number of falls in the elderly housebound population by providing the best possible vision to each patient. We also work closely with the Halon falls team receiving referrals on a regular basis.
We also know that most housebound people either read or watch television on a regular basis. When poor vision affects these tasks it can often lead to a depressing situation for the patient. In-House Mobile Opticians take great pride in being able to address these problems when they arise by providing accurate spectacle prescriptions which can greatly improve the quality of life for the patient.
