Free health screening day at new eye clinic opened in Huddersfield

  • by Emma

The public are being invited to a free screening day at Yorkshire eyecare specialist, The Body Doctor Ltd, to help assess their risk of developing Alzheimer’s disease or age-related macular degeneration, the leading cause of vision loss in older people.

Everyone screened at the event on May 1 in Clayton West, Huddersfield, will receive expert advice and a recommended personal treatment plan to help prevent them from developing the life-altering conditions.

The invitation is to celebrate the opening of The Body Doctor Eye Clinic on April 8, which was performed by the Deputy Mayor of Kirklees, Councillor Nosheen Dad, supported by TV medic Dr Hilary Jones, the face of the company’s popular Eye Doctor eye compresses, eyedrops and eyelid wipes.

During the screening day the advanced technology LifeMeter will accurately and painlessly measure the concentration of carotenoid nutrients from a visitor's fingertip in less than a minute, with no skin pricks.

The presence of these nutrients in the skin is a key indicator of someone’s wellbeing. Those with a low carotenoid level have been shown to have a higher frequency of eye strain and fatigue, trouble driving at night, poor contrast sensitivity and slower visual and cognitive processing, plus an increased chance of sunburn and brain fog. Studies have also shown that carotenoid concentrations are lower in people with mild cognitive impairment and Alzheimer’s disease.

As we get older the macular pigment in our eyes can wear down and become thinner. This reduces the protection our macula and retina have from oxidative stress which can lead to age-related macular degeneration, reducing our ability to see.

Three carotenoids, lutein, meso-zeaxanthin and zeaxanthin have been discovered in the macula at the back of the eye and in the brain. Food supplements with the right levels of these carotenoids can enhance quality of life and The Body Doctor Ltd recently became the UK distributor for the innovative MacuPrime and ReMind supplements.

MacuPrime is the only eye supplement backed by over 15 clinical trials. ReMind is a first of its kind supplement scientifically formulated to support normal brain function, which has been shown to have positive effects on the quality of life of Alzheimer’s patients.

The LifeMeter uses the most advanced technology to measure carotenoid levels, with its accuracy scientifically proven in over 30 peer-reviewed studies.

“We’re excited to have a LifeMeter in our central hub in Huddersfield as there are only 12 in the whole world,” said The Body Doctor Ltd’s Sales and Marketing Director, Sam Wymer.

“We’re thrilled to be able to offer the LifeMeter screening to the local areas surrounding our headquarters,” he added. “The recently launched LifeMeter screening package is usually offered to stockists of the MacuPrime and ReMind supplements but we wanted to give something back to our local community to help celebrate the milestone opening of The Body Doctor Eye Clinic. This ties in nicely with our company ethos of offering products and services which boost health and wellness, making people’s lives happier.

“We hope the public will join us on May 1 for an exclusive day’s clinic to understand their carotenoid level and enhance their life,” he concluded.

The 20-minute appointments are for up to two people per session and will take place from 9.30am-4.30pm at The Body Doctor Ltd, Unit 1, Bridge Industrial Estate, Off Park Mill Way, Clayton West, Huddersfield, HD8 9XJ. People interested in taking part are asked to pre-book at
