Fourways Mall Optometrist offers free screenings in honour of Glaucoma Week
Dynamic Vision Fourways Mall Optometrist, is honouring World Glaucoma Week, taking place this week from 11-18 March 2018, by performing free Glaucoma screenings to individuals in the area.
Anjana Mahadeo, Owner and Optometrist at Dynamic Vision Fourways Mall Optometrist says they offer free screenings during World Glaucoma Week to help raise awareness and assist people with early diagnosis of the disease to preserve their vision.
“Glaucoma is a progressive disease and can be very difficult to control if already in an advanced stage. The problem is that there aren’t any warning signs until the disease is already advanced and it is therefore important to visit an optometrist regularly to perform a comprehensive eye examination.”
“Glaucoma can be controlled and treated effectively, but damage that already exists cannot be reversed. In this case prevention is the cure and the earlier the diagnosis is done, the less chance you have of losing your vision.”
“To pick up on eye-health disorders in time, visit an optometrist at least every 12 months,” concludes Mahadeo.
