Can an optometrist check for Glaucoma is discussed and answered in detail and covering what optometrists do and how that applies to checking for glaucoma.

Our doctors continue to work diligently to remain at the forefront of ocular disease management for glaucoma, cataracts, macular degeneration and dry eye”

— Harry N. Halscheid, O.D., F.A.A.O.

MALVERN, PA, USA, February 28, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — People often wonder if they should visit an optometrist or ophthalmologist for vision care–particularly for an examination that could uncover signs of a serious eye condition such as glaucoma. The quick answer is: yes! An optometrist can check patients for glaucoma. All optometrists, regardless of their type of licensure, are able to diagnose glaucoma.

Optometrists and Glaucoma

An optometrist's training and experience typically have a lot to do with whether or not they are comfortable making a diagnosis of glaucoma or referring their patient onto an ophthalmologist. However, it is commonplace for optometrists to treat patients who've been diagnosed with glaucoma. Nearly all states allow optometrists to deliver glaucoma care. Today, it's far more common for an optometrist to care for patients with glaucoma than it was several decades ago.

What Do Optometrists Typically Do?

One of the primary care services that an optometrist delivers is to provide eye exams and vision checks. A routine eye exam is part of the optometrist's purview–and often where eye health conditions are first discovered. Optometrists also treat vision conditions such as nearsightedness and farsightedness. They also prescribe eyeglasses and contact lenses as well as provide vision therapy. Optometrists are trained to detect disease so that training would involve how to search for signs of glaucoma.

Unstable Glaucoma

While many optometrists manage patients who have glaucoma, some will choose to manage them in conjunction with an ophthalmologist. In cases where the glaucoma is advanced or unstable, the optometrist will typically refer the patient to a specialist. For example, if the individual needs filtration surgery, the optometrist will typically be involved in post-surgical care.

Talk to Your Provider

If you're concerned about glaucoma, talk to your optometrist. They can discuss how they typically handle a glaucoma diagnosis and what's entailed with the testing. Because many patients have experience visiting their optometrist on a routine basis, they may feel more comfortable continuing care with the same provider if they're diagnosed with the condition.

On the other hand, if your optometrist is not comfortable providing glaucoma treatment, they will make a referral to a glaucoma specialist. The key is to obtain the treatment you need so you can stabilize the condition and manage it effectively moving forward.

If you need an up-to-date eye exam, contact Clompus, Reto, and Halscheid Vision Associates to schedule an appointment. Glaucoma can be treated, but it's always best to achieve an early diagnosis to keep this disease in check.

— Georgia US Navy Veterans Lung Cancer Advocate

ATLANTA, GEORGIA , USA, February 28, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — The Georgia US Navy Veterans Lung Cancer Advocate is appealing to a Navy Veteran who has lung cancer in Georgia to call them anytime at 800-714-0303 if they also had significant exposure to asbestos in the service. In the event the Veteran is too sick to call on their own the Advocate is appealing to their family to call on their behalf. The type of person the Advocate is trying to identify is over 60 years old and their asbestos exposure probably occurred before 1980. What people like this do not understand is the $30 billion dollar-asbestos trust funds were set up for them too. A Navy Veteran or even a worker in Georgia who had heavy exposure to asbestos and now has lung cancer could get in excess of a hundred thousand dollars in compensation.

The Advocate says, "To get the financial compensation job for a Navy Veteran or person in Georgia who had heavy exposure to asbestos and now has lung cancer we have endorsed the remarkable lawyers at the law firm of Karst von Oiste. The lawyers at the law firm of Karst von Oiste have been assisting Navy Veterans and people with asbestos exposure lung cancer and mesothelioma for decades and they are responsible for over a billion dollars in financial compensation for people like this. For direct access to the lawyers at the law firm of Karst von Oiste please call 800-714-0303." www.karstvonoiste.com/

Typically, the exposure to asbestos occurred in the 1950’s, 1960’s, 1970’s, or 1980’s. https://Georgia.USNavyLungCancer.Com

According to the American Cancer Society for nonsmokers who have been exposed to asbestos in their workplace the risk of lung cancer is five times that of unexposed workers. https://www.cdc.gov/cancer/lung/statistics/index.htm.

The US Navy Veterans Lung Cancer Advocate says, "If your husband, dad, coworker or neighbor has just been diagnosed with lung cancer and you know they had significant exposure to asbestos in the navy, at a shipyard or while working at a factory, at power plant, public utility, or as a plumber, electrician welder, mechanic or any kind of skilled trades group in any state please have them call us anytime at 800-714-0303. Most people like this never get compensated-even though the asbestos trust funds were set up for them too. We are trying to change this sad fact." https://USNavyLungCancer.Com

Safeguard Equipment Closes Sale of 10,000 Compass™ Personal Voltage & Current Detectors to FirstEnergy Corp.

Avoid Electrocution Safety Device

Compass Personal Voltage & Current Detector

Avoid Electrocution Safety Device

Compass Personal Voltage & Current Detector

FirstEnergy is committed to always putting safety first.

Safety is our core value, and working in partnership with our frontline workforce, we will utilize this tool to help our employees reduce their exposure when working in energized areas”

— Laura Redenshek, Director, FEU Safety

POST FALLS, IDAHO, USA, February 27, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — Since commencing operations in 2018, Safeguard Equipment has sold thousands of its Compass Personal Voltage and Current Detectors (PVCDs). Compass is a revolutionary advancement in PVCD technology. The device’s advanced form factor and digital technology places it years ahead of any other safety device currently available. Compass securely attaches to the brim of any standard hard hat where it provides 360° of risk detection. It is the first device to provide both proximity and directional audio and visual alerts for electrical threats. This powerful risk-aversion technology has saved at least eleven lives to date and likely saved many more.

Safeguard recently contracted to supply 10,000 Compass units to FirstEnergy Corp., one of the nation's largest investor-owned electric utilities. FirstEnergy serves more than 6 million customers throughout the Midwest and Mid-Atlantic regions via 269,000 miles of distribution lines. "Safety is our core value, and working in partnership with our frontline workforce, we will utilize this tool to help our employees reduce their exposure when working in energized areas,” said Laura Redenshek, Director, FEU Safety.

Working with electricity every day requires skill, courage, and confidence. Experienced utility workers sometimes act as if they are immune to danger, but facts say otherwise: OSHA reports that more than 30,000 electric shock injuries occur every year. Some accidents are genuinely unpredictable, but many can be blamed on failing to follow proper safety procedures or neglecting to use all available safety equipment.

Nothing can eliminate all jobsite dangers, but commitment to personal safety is the best defense. The easiest way for utilities to avoid electrical accidents is to provide their workers with top-quality protective equipment including gloves, hard hats, boots, eye protection, and PVCDs.

Safeguard’s mission is “to innovate in all things safety and bring peace of mind in any work environment,” and FirstEnergy is committed to always putting safety first.

Air Quality Index Improves in Wuhan China.

Air Quality Index in Wuhan China during Coronavirus

Air Quality Index in Beijing China during Coronavirus is much better than in New Delhi India.

Better Air Quality Index in Wuhan during Coronavirus.

The positive impact of Coronavirus in Wuhan is the improved air quality index. As the people go back to work, air pollution goes up.

Climate change is not a Hoax we the people make an impact on the Air Quality Index as seen in Wuhan China where during the Coronavirus Air Quality Index is Good.”

— Air Quality index is impacted by the factories and Humans

SAN JOSE, CA, UNITED STATES, February 27, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — The manufacturing has come to a halt in Wuhan China and the residents in the city are quarantined with a fear that Coronavirus will spread. There is no one to be seen on the streets and city is deserted. What does this mean – people are not going to work; factories are not producing any products and there are no cars on the roads.

The next question is do we as human beings have any impact on the Air Quality Index and pollution or on a larger scale do we have an impact on the Climate Change. The answer is YES!

I have been monitoring the Air Quality Index in Wuhan over the last few weeks and results support the hypothesis. The air quality has been Good to Moderate in the city, whereas other cities away from Wuhan still have the poor Air Quality Index.

The forecast is as people go back to work and we begin to manufacture the product we will begin to start contributing to the pollution and poor Air Quality Index. Indicating that we are directly responsible for the environment we live in and we have to make the choices.

It is very difficult to simulate such conditions in the present world where we are so interdependent on each other and have to keep our factories running to manufacture the products to stay competitive in the global environment. It is just a coincidence that the impact of Coronavirus which is a deadly infectious virus has forced us to stay isolated from each other to mitigate the spread of the virus from human to human.

During the same time here is Air Quality Index in Beijing South which is Unhealthy at 172. This corresponds to the fact that we the human beings have a direct impact on the quality of the Air Quality Index and the pollution in our environment.

Please refer to the chart on the side that clearly shows “Better Air Quality Index in Wuhan during Coronavirus”. What a difference it is to see the change. I do not wish that we have to be under the threat of Coronavirus to improve the air quality. I pray that we can learn from this and make changes in our manufacturing process and reduce the pollutants introduced by people living in the environment.

The housing contributes at least 18 to 20 percent to the global pollution. Homes heating, cooling and domestic hot water use over 65% of the Energy. One thing we can focus on is the way we are building our future homes. If we start building with all sustainable materials and Renewable Energy, we can make a big impact. This will not happen overnight but will take decades. Our goal is to have the environment turned around by 2050. When all the cities in world can breathe fresh air and live a healthy lifestyle.

India and China are the two most polluting countries in the world. Air Quality Index Chart showing the comparison between Beijing and New Delhi reflects that China is much cleaner as compared to Delhi. Beijing has had more cleaner days with good Air Quality Index vs Delhi.

India and China must take this very seriously or they are going to be responsible for most of the climate change impact. USA is the largest consumer of energy per capita but has a better Air Quality Index overall in the country.

Is there a room to improve the answer is YES! Sun is the best source of energy and today we have the know how to convert the solar energy to Electricity. Sun provides enough energy in one hour to provide the energy requirements for the world consumption. We just have to harness the energy and use it as needed.

The challenges we have is how to store the energy and use it at a later date when needed. As we speak the research is being done and we are developing technologies like the one developed by Tesla as Power Wall. We are currently also exploring the possibilities of storing energy in the Thermal Storage Energy using the solar power.

California is the leading state to encounter the climate change impact. The City Council in the city of Berkeley, Palo Alto, San Jose and may other have approved that the new construction homes will not be connected with gas lines and will have to be all electric. Initially the cost will be higher but the long-term benefit will be awesome for the generations to come. We one day may be able to leave the plant for them to live on without pollution. We must use Renewable Energy to solve the problem.

I have lived in New Delhi and I have seen the pollution and experienced it, It for that reason I am concerned about the citizens of the world and am constantly looking for solutions to make homes with the best Energy saving technologies the also improve the air quality inside the homes. We must build Passive Inspired Net Zero Home. I am so happy to see the improved air quality in Wuhan Chine – I hope we can keep it like that in the future.

Please see the video how is China improving the Air Quality Index.
