March Cataract and Glaucoma Screening

glaucomaHannibal Regional Medical Group (HRMG) is proud to offer free cataract and glaucoma screenings in March. After the age of 40 the chance for glaucoma rises and more than half of all Americans age 65 and older have cataracts.

Cataracts are the leading cause of visual loss in adults ages 55 and older and the leading cause of blindness worldwide. Contrary to popular belief, cataracts are not a film that develops over your eyes but rather cataracts are the clouding and thickening of the intraocular lens inside the eye.

In its early stages, a cataract may not cause a problem. The cloudiness may affect only a small part of the lens. However, the cataract may grow larger over time and affect more of the lens, making it harder to see. As less light reaches the retina, it becomes increasingly harder to see and vision may become dull and blurry.

My Heart Nearly Killed Me

clinton-millerWhen Clinton Miller had a sore throat, he stopped in Express Care to see about quick treatment. Express Care is a fast, easy option for patients looking for exceptional care on a walk-in basis.

Not having a primary care physician, Clinton chose the convenient option of Express Care for something he thought was a minor illness. Luckily for him, the skilled Nurse Practitioners at Express Care detected a heart murmur and urged Clinton to follow up with a cardiologist at Hannibal Regional Medical Group.

“The persistence and concern of the Nurse Practitioners at Express Care saved my life,” says Clinton.

At just 33, Clinton was married with a two-year-old daughter. He wasn’t expecting to be diagnosed with aortic valve stenosis, a narrowing of the heart’s aortic valve that can obstruct blood flow from the heart to the rest of the body.

FREE Foot Screening

FACEBOOK-PODIATRY-POSTThe foot is a complex structure of 26 bones and 33 joints, layered with an intertwining web of more than 120 muscles, ligaments, and nerves. It’s no wonder so many people suffer from foot pain. According to the American Podiatric Medical Association’s survey of 1,000 US adults ages 18 and older, found the majority of Americans say they have experienced foot pain (77 percent), but only a third of those would seek expert care by a podiatrist. Foot pain can have a profound impact on quality of life. Half of all adults say that foot pain has restricted their activities—like walking, exercising, working, or playing with grandchildren—in some way. For those with chronic foot pain, that number jumps to 83 percent. People say they would exercise more (39 percent) and participate in more activities (41 percent) if it weren’t for their foot pain
