Vista mobile support service eye-screening leads to diabetes diagnosis
When he returned later on that afternoon, Mr. Lad sat down and went through the full eye-screening process. The screening showed Mr. Lad having blurred vision in both his eyes. Vanisha was very assuring but was advised he got his eyes checked by opticians.
After a scheduled visit to a professional optician who, after a full test, advised him to go doctors to get a blood test done. The blood test results came back from the medical professionals and he was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes and has been given medical advice on how to move forward. Both the doctors and opticians have explained diabetes are reasons for blurred vision and the connection between diabetes and eyes.
In a letter sent to Vista head office, Mr Lad said "If it was not for this young lady approaching me for the free eye screening, I would not have known I have diabetes."
