Eye Health

Eyes are a vital part of the working toolkit. Keeping eyes healthy is a priority.

Eyes for Work specialise in giving advice on Digital Eye Strain and how to avoid it. The comprehensive report we provide you with offers you a wealth of information to promote good general health, eye health and wellbeing.

Whilst certain eye conditions are genetic and thus unavoidable, we all recognise that our vision changes with age. There are many measures that can be taken to help us maintain our eye health for as long as possible.

The four most common eye diseases which can lead to sight loss are Diabetic Retinopathy, Cataracts, Macular Degeneration and Glaucoma.

Sight loss due to cataract is reversible. Thanks to surgical advancements, cataract surgery is usually very successful and is now the most commonly performed surgery in the world. For common general health conditions such as Diabetes and Hypertension, early detection is key to allow control of the underlying condition which minimises the potential impact on eye health.

Macular degeneration and Glaucoma are specific eye conditions, often found in those who have a family history. Regular eye examinations play an important role in identifying these conditions early, which enables relevant treatment to be accessed.

Some chronic conditions such as Blepharitis are not sight threatening but can impact on the quality of life and be a nuisance to live with. These respond well to self help management strategies.
