Checking intraocular pressure

Date: 17.06.2017

Dear parents, if your child squints often, needs to have books very close when reading, stoops, complains about headaches or dizziness, you should be alert. Children rarely notice and tell their parents that their eyesight is getting worse, therefore, they should be examined by ophthalmologist regularly. One of the primary goals of the "Shine of Happy Eyes" project, which is implemented as part of the "Walking to the Healthland" program of the “United World Cultures Foundation”, is the prevention of visual impairment in children.

To date, the problem of visual impairment in children is very acute. This is because children spend a lot of time on computers, laptops, tablets and phones. Therefore it is very important to visit the ophthalmologist on a regular basis. Always pay attention to changes in the behavior of the baby. You should be alert if the child squints often, needs to have books very close when reading, stoops, complains about headaches or dizziness.

One of the primary goals of the "Shine of Happy Eyes" project, which is implemented as part of the "Walking to the Healthland" program of the “United World Cultures Foundation”, is the prevention of visual impairment in children. It is very important that parents know that a child's visual impairment can be hereditary or acquired due to excessive stress on the eyes, work in poor light, a long stay in front of a computer or TV screen, and so on. As a percentage, the number of children with visual impairment is about nine percent of the total in the elementary school and about thirty percent already in the high school.

Glaucoma, astigmatism ... This is not a complete list of diseases in which intraocular pressure changes, so it is so important to determine it in a timely manner. Especially it should be done during the treatment of children, because they rarely notice and tell their parents that their eyesight is getting worse.

Employees of the “United World Cultures Foundation”, working on the "Shine of Happy Eyes" project, using the IGD-02 diathera intraocular pressure indicator checked in a playful form the intraocular pressure of the residents of the "Dzherelo" boarding house, who were forced to leave their homes in the Donbass.

The IGD-02 diathera intraocular pressure indicator is very convenient in measuring intraocular pressure. The procedure is absolutely harmless, neat and painless - there is no need to use anesthetics.

Boys and girls in vain said that they dream of being doctors, saving people's lives and bringing joy from recovery.

After measuring the pressure, residents of the boarding house were treated with curative Carpathian tea, which contains a complex of vitamins and microelements, saturates the body with vital energy and strength.

The "Shine of Happy Eyes" project, implemented within the framework of the "Walking to the Healthland" program of the “United World Cultures Foundation”, is doing everything to bring the message to people about the careful attitude to health. Regularly visit the ophthalmologist, do not let the disease get worse, control eye pressure! Take care of your eyes and visit the doctor on time!
