Doctors at the Skeldon Hospital continue their battle to save the life of a young mother, who it is believed ingested a poisonous substance and gave some to her one-year-old baby.The incident occurred on the Upper Corentyne on Saturday morning. On Sunday evening, the woman’s condition was deemed critical.According to a hospital source, since the woman was admitted on Saturday in stable condition, her condition has worsened and up to press time, she was considered to be critical.The source said the infant had showed signs of improvement, but there were some worrying physical signs which had developed over the first 24 hours. The source said sections of the infant’s lips had begun to burst. However, the general health of the child had improved.On Saturday morning, 19-year-old Roshanie Ramlakhan, of Number 58 Village, Corentyne, was picked up in a semi-conscious state next to a bus shed at Number 61 Village and the child was standing next to her when she was found.She claimed that she had ingested a poisonous substance and also given some to her baby to drink.Reports are that the woman and her 23-year-old husband had an argument earlier in the day and she left the house taking the child with her.While relatives have confirmed that there was an argument between the couple, they could not say what they were arguing over but related that an argument between the two was nothing strange.The woman and child were taken to the hospital by the Police, who were investigating the incident.
Varifocals can be described as reading and distance optical prescriptions combined in to one lens.The lenses have a measured change in strength from the top to the bottom, facilitating clear vision at all distances with the added convenience of only needing one pair of glasses.Because the focal range is varied, wearers will need to use them differently depending on what they are doing. • The upper part of the lens corrects distance vision which wearers will use when watching TV or looking at scenery for example.• The change between the distance and the reading prescription is in the middle of the lens. Wearers will use this part of the lens for viewing things at mid-range, for example when using the computer or cooking.• The lower part of the lens corrects near vision, which wearers will use to do close work such as reading, sewing, arts and crafts etc.For a limited time only, you can now get free reading glasses when you purchase a new frame with premium varifocal lenses (Essilor Varilux Comfort or Hoya Summit PRO Trueform and ID Lifestyle) at Brady Opticians, Donegal Town.
