Penzers Gift Shop open for business

Penzers has opened a small gift shop to the rear of the opticians in  a separate room.

There is a small selection of quality items available to purchase at reasonable prices; and not the usual run of the mill high street items either.

The gift shop is open the same times as the practice is open.

If you are looking to find a few gift ideas for Mother’s Day, then do op in  and have a mooch. We may have just what you are looking for.

How aware are you of the issues caused by digital eye strain?

The public are unaware of the problems caused by digital eye strain

The public are unaware of the problems caused by digital eye strain

Most people are unaware of the impact that digital eye strain will have on their eyes. According to The Vision Council on average, more than nine in 10 adults (93.3 percent) spend more than two hours each day using a digital device, with more than six in 10 adults (60.8 percent) spending five or more hours on digital devices each day. Whether it’s for work or play, using computers, smartphones, tablets and e-readers TV or video games, all that time can take a toll on the eyes and lead to digital eye strain.

Digital eye strain is the physical discomfort felt after two or more hours in front of a digital screen and is associated with the close to mid-range distance of digital screens, including desktop and laptop computers, tablets, e-readers and cell phones. On average, a person going through his or her daily routine blinks about 18 times per minute. However, spending significant amounts of time staring at a screen causes blink rates to reduce, resulting in dry, itchy or burning eyes.

Penzers offers new test to detect diabetes for a limited period

Grafton Optical has delivered CLEARPATH DS-120 to the market, which can detect diabetes. Penzer Opticians is currently trialling this equipment. Usually a test costs £20, but during the period of the trial, Penzers is offering it for just £5. Call to book your appointment on 0121 430 5538.

The evaluation starts with asking patients simple questions to assess their risk of having uncontrolled glucose problems. These questions are based on the American Diabetes Association Risk Test and include: height/weight, exercise, gender, race and family history of uncontrolled glucose.

In order to further confirm after one or more positive responses, a scan of the eye is performed using the CLEARPATH DS-120™ Lens Fluorescence Biomicroscope.
