According to the WHO and WCO, Optometry is a healthcare profession that is autonomous, educated, and regulated (licensed/registered), and optometrists are the primary healthcare practitioners of the eye and visual system who provide comprehensive eye and vision care, which includes refraction and dispensing, detection/diagnosis and management of disease in the eye, and the rehabilitation of conditions of the visual system.
This means optometry and optometrists are an integral part of the healthcare system worldwide, and Nigeria shouldn't be an exception.
I therefore find it a bit difficult to understand that there's no live or even dead thread for these great professionals. It's maddening.
Therefore, if there are any optometrists on NL, y'all can make us a nice thread for optometrists where cases can be discussed and knowledge shared, and the public can seek advice. Also, students and intending optometrists can know exactly what their profession entails, and it will also help foster a sense of camaraderie that is essential to the growth of any organisation. Thanks in anticipation!!!

Hi Unlimited22
How're you doing?

Please I'd like to ask a question
I have a history of eye problem...I went to a private eye clinic then...my complaints then was eyes always itching me...and not seeing things from afar...I lost the glasses then

I collected another pair of glasses from another place again but I couldn't continue using it cause it usually gave me a headache

I continued managing the eyes...it gradually progressed to me not seeing anything on the board in class despite always sitting in the front row,not seeing or able to make out people's faces again sometimes look blurry sef unless they are directly in front of me or just a few steps away not too now talk of something far... sometimes one of my eyes will just be red ... sometimes both...
I'm honestly confused...I don't know if it is enough reason to go back to see an eye doctor...(please don't see this question or act as foolish)...my mind just keeps telling me it isn't enough reason and I keep stalling going to see a doctor
And which would you advise....a private eye clinic or a teaching hospital?

Sorry for the long story

If you're in a big city, go to a teaching hospital or federal Medical Center. And please wear your glasses as prescribed. All the symptoms you're having are just because you need glasses and you're not using any.

Them no Dey manage eyes o
