HeartSavers Ltd is the intervention/service arm of the Institute providing service to registrants for the arrest and unavoidable reversal of arterial (heart) disease. This is the monitoring of the retinal - and through it the coronary and cerebrostriate artery disease which predispose to coronary thrombosis – the main cause of all deaths – stroke, aneurysm and possibly much circulatory disease of the kidneys, legs, Angina, etc.
All this is purchased for £450 for the 3 yr programme of monitoring and photography, the reduction of approx. £100 being offered instead of the refund of fees in the event of death from a coronary thrombosis, still unknown amongst those retained on the programme. Others are discharged if failing to follow the course and show improvement emphasising that this is teamwork.
Registrants pay the Optometrist whose staff can capture and transmit 45 degree
retinal images for evaluation and prescribing by the Institute. Prospective registrants
are directed preferentially, to Members of the Institute. Foundation Membership
is still available for £99 but will eventually rise to £400 p.a for Non-Foundation
Members. Membership accesses the Doctor of CardioRetinometry course (DCardioRet)
for autonomous practice.
Newly qualified? Enjoy a free first year Foundation Membership.
Registrants pay the Optometrist £20 per set of images (usually 6 monthly) which
amounts to £140 without needing to see the registrant.
Why did you not hear about this in 2006/7/8/9/10? Publishing politics in
pharmacy beholden journals. I stated that "in April 2011 Optometry will change for ever."
My promise is coming true.
