School Screenings


Over the years I have realised that most parents do not always consider taking their children for an eye test before Grade 1. For this reason school screenings are so important. Without a thorough school screening many potential problems can be overlooked. 


1 out of 4 school-age children have vision problems that can affect learning and personality if not treated correctly.


We also take a different approach in relieving eye strain that can cause a lot of frustration with reading and learning. Especially now after Lockdown and E-learning, kids are experiencing a lot more visual discomfort. Even more so kids that are cross-dominant. Please read more about this in the letter I attached by Prof. Jannie Ferreira, who has focused for many years on children with these visual challenges. I work together with Prof. Ferreira and our main aim is to help these kids function more comfortably visually.


We provide full reports of our findings and make recommendations if visual limitations are detected.
