Home Care Solutions
As part of our home care solutions when we first arrive at the patient’s home or care home, before we do anything else, we take time to speak with the patient, the carer or nurse. Together we identify any existing eyesight problems and build up as full an eye care history as we can. Personal histories usually touch on general health, any previous treatment, and the immediate environment, where décor and lighting can have an important influence on the patient’s sight.
We ascertain, for example, whether the patient has any existing eyesight problems, is registered blind, partially sighted, taking medication, has diabetes or a family background of glaucoma. We gather as much information as we can, as precisely as we can, before using or prescribing eye drops, for instance, which may interact adversely with other medication.
Our first priority is the health and well-being of the individual patient.
