Valli Optometry and Audiology, a leading provider of eye care and hearing care services, is hosting a free health screening day at their Honley branch on Thursday May 2.

This event aims to raise awareness and assess the risk of developing age-related macular degeneration (AMD), the leading cause of vision loss in older adults, and Alzheimer’s disease.

The screening utilises the LifeMeter, a cutting-edge device supplied by The Body Doctor in Clayton West. This innovative technology painlessly measures carotenoid nutrient levels within a minute using a fingertip scan, eliminating the need for needles.

Moin Valli, CEO of Valli, said: “We are committed to providing comprehensive eye care and believe in proactive health measures.

“This free screening day allows us to identify potential risks early on and empower individuals to take steps towards protecting their vision and overall well-being.”

The presence of carotenoids in the skin serves as a vital indicator of a person’s health. Low levels are associated with increased eye strain, night vision difficulties, poor contrast sensitivity, and slower cognitive processing.

Additionally, research suggests a link between low carotenoid levels and an increased risk of sunburn, brain fog and even Alzheimer’s disease.

As we age, the macular pigment in our eyes can deteriorate, leading to AMD and diminished vision. Three specific carotenoids – lutein, meso-zeaxanthin, and zeaxanthin – are found in the macula and the brain. Consuming supplements containing these carotenoids can significantly enhance quality of life.

The LifeMeter’s accuracy is scientifically validated through over 30 peer-reviewed studies, providing a reliable assessment of carotenoid levels.
