As we know the RNIB has been championing the issue of spotting the early signs of the vision loss, and getting an early diagnosis.
According to the RNIB every hour 4 people will start to lose their vision in the UK. Around 50% of cases are preventable.
The four common causes of vision loss Cataract, Glaucoma, Macula degeneration (ARMD/AMD)and Diabetes can all be detected by the 360 EyeScan at an early stage although you may not have noticed any symptoms yourself.” says Damian Lake.
One part of the appointment is the use of a ultra widefield high resolution image capture system, which allows the Doctor to examine the Retina of your eye to exclude diseases in the periphery such as retinal tears, detachments and even tumors.
