‘These diseases are much more prevalent in older people, which is why it’s important to have your eyes checked annually,’ Mr Russell said.

‘We use the best equipment available to provided diagnosis and if caught early enough, we can often prevent the disease from spreading further ” the check-up is quick and easy as it’s all done in the one location.’

OPSM Cockburn Gateway also uses an ultra-wide digital retinal scanner, which scans the entire back of the eye.
