We do the following eye screening tests for children:
  • Refraction (power)
  • Cover Test (squint eye)
  • Ocular Motility (eye muscle coordination)
  • Stereopsis (3D vision)
  • Colour Vision
  • Slit Lamp examination (anterior eye health-eyelids, cornea, etc)
  • Ophthalmoscopy (retina health)

The majority of newborn babies and young children have flat noses. With that, it is not easy to find suitable frames for them. We carry frames specially designed for them. It comes with a specially fitted nose bridge that will hardly slide down on a flat nose. Furthermore, the frame comes with ear hooks, which help preventing it from sliding down.

Not only do we carry suitable frames, we also provide ophthalmic lenses for very high prescriptions. E.g. aphakic/ post congenital cataract removal. In addition, we sell eye patches to aid a doctor’s request for the child to train with one eye to improve his bad eye.

If your child has high myopia increase within a short period of time, in the range of 6 months, we can recommend myopic control lens to the child.

(Ortho-K) is a rigid gas-permeable contact lenses that actually reshape the surface of your eye, the cornea. Once reshaped, you can see clearly after removing the lenses. The effect is temporary, for about a day or so. That is why you have to wear it every night while you sleep.

This method can be used as an alternative to eyeglasses, refractive surgery, or for those who prefer not to wear contact lenses during the day. E.g. contact lenses may dislodged during sports activities.

Keratoconus is an irregular protrusion of the cornea, the clear surface over the colored part of the eye. It is shaped like a cone. With the irregularity of the cornea shape, light entering the eye will not be precise. Thus an irregular image will be formed.

Other than a corneal transplant, a rigid gas permeable lens will be used to correct the irregular cornea.

Prosthetic contact lenses mask flaws and improve the appearance of an eye disfigured from a birth defect, trauma, or eye disease. If certain structures of the injured or disfigured eye also fail to function properly, these special contact lenses can also be designed to block excess light from reaching the back of the eye and causing vision problems.

Many different injuries, conditions, or infections can lead to disfigurement of the eye and leave an individual feeling self-conscious about appearance. Prosthetic lenses specially designed to match the other eye as closely as possible can make the disfigured eye less conspicuous.

RGP - GPs can also provide better vision, durability, and deposit resistance than soft contact lenses. They can be easier to clean, and since they're long-lasting, they can be less expensive in the long term than soft lenses

GPs offer some outstanding benefits over soft lenses. For one, because an RGP is made of a stiff material, it retains its shape well when you blink, which tends to provide crisper vision than would a soft lens.GPs are extremely durable. Although you can break them (for instance, if you step on them), you can't tear them easily, like soft lenses. And they're made of materials that don't contain water (as soft contact lenses do), so protein and lipids from your tears do not adhere to GPs as readily as they do to soft lenses.

For corneas with low toricity, spherical, rigid gas-permeable (RGP) lenses can often mask the astigmatism. If the spherical RGP lens fits well on the cornea but astigmatism persists, an anterior toric RGP lens is appropriate because it has a spherical base curve with a toric front surface to correct the astigmatism.

Disposable contacts are designed to be worn for a specific period of time, then thrown out and replaced with a fresh pair of lenses. The more frequently you replace your contact lenses, the healthier and more comfortable your eyes can be. Substances like protein, calcium, and lipids — found naturally in your tears — can build up on your lenses. These deposits make your contacts less comfortable than when they were new, and can also make your eyes more prone to infection.

Finding a way to read comfortably is one of the most difficult challenges for visually impaired people. Many give it up altogether, because what used to be an enjoyable, effortless activity now requires thought, preparation and a lot of adjustment.

For some people in this situation, reading is just not enjoyable anymore.

Even so, many low vision devices can make reading easier and more rewarding for people with macular degeneration, retinitis pigmentosa, tunnel vision and other low vision conditions.
