Baie dankie vir die goeie werk wat u gedoen het met die oogtoeste en die bril. Dt voel asof ek in n sprokieswereld instap as ek my brille opsit en ek sien nou soveel goed raak dat ek nie weet waarvoor om te kyk ni! Nogmaals baie dankie dit word ter harte waardeer!

The difference between ready-made and prescription glasses.

Every day, I get a question from my patients: Is a cheap, ready-made reader that you buy from the pharmacy unhealthy for your eyes?


Are there any lifestyle changes that I can make to prevent eye disease or disorders?

For starters, maintaining a healthy diet is crucial. We all know that your diet significantly influences your overall health, and your eye health is no exception.

In addition, certain nutrients or lack thereof play a part in certain eye conditions such as cataracts or macular degeneration. Essential nutrients include fatty fish like tuna or salmon, spinach, kale, carrots, citrus fruits like oranges, eggs, and nuts.
