Why do we provide eye screening?
Many degenerative eye diseases are age-related.
Often, symptoms of eye disease are not easily noticeable. Therefore, eye screening is necessary to detect the presence of eye diseases and initiate appropriate treatment at an early stage.
Eye screening can help provide participants with earlier treatment, appropriate medical advice, and further tests to help reduce the risk of complications arising from the eye disease.
Cataract is the leading cause of blindness in the developing world.
Degeneration of the eye’s crystalline lens causes blurring of vision, glare and changes in refractive error.
In its advanced stages, untreated cataract can induce acute glaucoma.
Glaucoma is the leading cause of irreversible blindness in the developed world.
Glaucoma has no symptoms at the early stages. However, progressive visual field loss can eventually lead to total loss of vision.
Macular degeneration can cause distortion or a loss of central vision.
Early stages of macular degeneration tend to progress slowly, but can worsen suddenly

Height, weight and blood pressure measurement
