Transitions Optical has launched a new online tool which predicts the probability of a child developing cataracts later in life. The Children’s Cataract Calculator aims to help practitioners educate parents about the importance of children’s eye health.
Practioneers ask the child and parents a few questions about themselves, lifestyle and health problems. Responses are put into the online form and results are immediate. In addition the printout recommends preventive eye health measures to reduce risk
The Cataract Calculator can be found in the ‘Children’s Corner’ on www.transitionsnet.co.uk
