Visit Us at the 19th Annual Early Signs Health Fair on September 9
Life Care Center of Hilo will be hosting their 19th annual Early Signs Health Fair on September 9 from 10:00AM to 2:00PM. This free event will host physicians and companies across a variety of health categories to answer questions, provide information, and provide complimentary services.
Visit Eye Care Hawaii's table to learn about the important connection between nutrition and eye health, and how a diet of dark leafy greens can help prevent common eye diseases such as macular generation (the leading cause of vision loss in people over 50). This year, Eye Care Hawaii also will be offering complimentary topography readings, which detect the pressure within the eye. Improper eye pressure can be a warning sign of glaucoma, a disease that can lead to rapid vision loss.
Participants in the fair also can join Eye Care Hawaii's Dr. Ian Kawamoto at 11:30AM for his presentation on The Aging Eye. Dr. Kawamoto's informative presentation will explain the warning signs and symptoms of common eye diseases.
