MIAMI, March 12 /PRNewswire/ -- March 12 has been proclaimed as "World Glaucoma Day" by glaucoma specialists around the globe. According to the World Health Organization, more than five million people, many of African descent, needlessly suffer horribly from total incurable Glaucoma-Blindness. Most lacked the opportunity to get tested for Earlier Glaucoma before Glaucoma slowly robbed them of all their sight. Dr. Robert Welsh, a Rotarian, a world-renowned Eye Surgeon and a leading Medical Missionary can help prevent 80,000 new totally blind Glaucoma cases a year through administering his new unique invention: The Welsh Glaucoma "Self-Test", and the New Welsh "T.V. Self-Test for Earlier Glaucoma," on all USA T.V. Stations.
Dr. Welsh said, "Elderly African Americans are nine times more gene prone to developing blinding Glaucoma than other population groups where the severe threat of new total blindness from chronic Glaucoma can run as high as 80,000 newly blind cases per year. Early Glaucoma diagnosis and treatment can be made by working with Pastors at African American churches throughout the US."
The 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" for Glaucoma can be administered and explained on all USA T.V. Stations as the new "Welsh T.V. Self-Test" for earlier Glaucoma and also used in 13,000 US African American churches with simple Self-Test instructions from their Pastors. Pastors can scan their elderly African American congregation in five minutes after sermons or during special events. Those found to be at risk from high pressure Glaucoma are then referred to an area Ophthalmologist for proper treatments.
Blinding Glaucoma is often called the "Sneak Thief of Sight" because most African Americans 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 African Americans doesn't have to happen and it won't with the Welsh Glaucoma "Self-Test" for mass diagnosis coupled with treatments including: eye drops, four different types of lasers, and careful surgery.
Interested Pastors and churches or T.V. Stations may contact Dr. Welsh (305-661-4363) to help stop preventable blindness from earlier treatable Glaucoma.
To help prevent Glaucoma blindness, copy this document and send to Pastors of African American churches in your area and/or to all churches and T.V. Stations around the U.S.A.
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. He is now retired but working for free.
