Dr. Welsh 'Self-Test' Diagnoses Glaucoma, the Leading Cause of Preventable- Blindness
Date:2/15/2008

MIAMI, Feb. 15 /PRNewswire/ -- According to the World Health Organization, more than five million people, mostly elderly blacks, needlessly suffer from total incurable Glaucoma-Blindness ("White-Canes"). Most lacked the opportunity to get tested for earlier Glaucoma before Glaucoma robbed them of all sight. Dr. Robert Welsh, a Rotarian, a world-renowned Eye Surgeon and a leading Medical Missionary can help prevent 80,000 new cases a year through administering his new unique invention: The Welsh "Self-Test."

This Newest Welsh "Self-Test" for earlier Glaucoma may be awkward, but is also accurate. It involves holding one hand over the opposite eye and then using the free hand for "Finger-Wiggling," testing motion nasally in the eye staring laterally, to detect reduced or lost "Nose-Side Side-Vision," called a 95% Glaucoma diagnostic "Nasal-Step" loss. Nasal steps should be either 80% above 180 degrees or below 15%. No insurance pays for Gross-Field Testing. Most Glaucoma experts and Glaucoma advisors have almost zero experience in Gross-Field Testing.

The Welsh "Self-Test" can be administered in 13,000 US black churches with simple instructions from their Pastors. Pastors can scan their elderly black congregation in five minutes after sermons or during special events. Those found to be at risk for high pressure Glaucoma are then referred to an area ophthalmologist for proper treatment.

Blinding Glaucoma is often called the "Sneak Thief of Sight" because most Blacks with Advanced Blinding Glaucoma are completely unaware that their "Side-Vision" is being stolen from them until it is too late. Optic-nerve damage due to increased-pressure within the eye builds to a point of no return. This total incurable blindness in Blacks doesn't have to happen and it won't with the newest Welsh "Self-Test" for mass diagnosis coupled with new treatments including: eye drops, four different types of lasers, and careful surgery.

Dr. Welsh said, "Elderly Blacks are nine times more gene prone to developing totally blinding Glaucoma than other population groups where the severe threat of new total blindness from chronic Glaucoma can run as high as 80,000 new cases per year. Early Glaucoma diagnosis and treatment can be made by working with Pastors at black churches throughout America."

Interested Pastors and churches may contact Dr. Welsh at http://www.glaucomaselftest.org to help stop preventable blindness from earlier treatable Glaucoma or call Bud Grant at 1-516-327-2236 Director of U.S. Congress's new and highly-funded "Glaucoma-Black-Caucus Foundation."

To help prevent blindness, copy this document and send to Pastors of black churches in your area and/or to all churches around the US. For info, visit http://www.glaucomaselftest.org.

Dr. Welsh is the author of eight books on eyesight and the man behind the now famous biennial Welsh Cataract Congresses which met from 1969 to 1996.
