We've funded new equipment for Milton Keynes Hospital Eye Clinic
From this month, young patients coming into Milton Keynes Hospital can benefit from a great addition to the eye clinic in the form of the iCare® tonometer.
The iCare® tonometer painlessly measures high pressure in the eyes of children (a possible symptom of glaucoma), rather than having them undergo a needless and more invasive procedure under general anaesthetic.
It can also be used for older patients who may get nervous or distressed during invasive procedures, such as people with dementia.
This piece of equipment was made possible thanks to hospital staff member James Cooney, who is passionate about making a difference to wards and departments around the hospital by fundraising for Milton Keynes Hospital Charity.
