Eye protection- retinal photography

Specsavers says it has invested more than £6 million over the last year installing the latest high-resolution retinal cameras in most stores to provide retinal photography, initially for the over 40s, as part of the Specsavers professional service, at no extra charge.

Checks on employees’ overall eye health can also provide information on their general health. Specsavers says the new technology allows a digital record to be taken of the retina and kept on file, so that any changes to the eye can be monitored.

The camera can help the optometrist detect indications for glaucoma, age-related macular degeneration, certain tumours, retinopathy/maculopathy, and ocular hypertension.

Specsavers says this service provides a direct benefit for its corporate clients — when they send their staff to Specsavers they know they are getting first-class care. To find out more, call Jim Lythgow, director of strategic alliances at Specsavers, on 01252 843350.
