As we are also parents and understand the frustration and challenges we’ve decided to focus our community service project on the schools in our community.
Statistically sight contributes around 80% of learning, therefor we need to ensure healthy eyes and good vision to enable our kids to reach their full potential.
Our approach is to identify vision problems as early as possible by performing a screening test. The screening test is performed during our visits at the schools in our area, if needed a comprehensive eye and vision examination is recommended.
Equipped with extra paediatric optometric training and our Welch Allen spot screener, we started in 2016 screening our first 164 children's eyes. In 2018 we screened 511 children in Paratus Primary and Laerskool Swartkop. 116 children, almost 25% needed a comprehensive eye and vision examination.
Our mission is to screen all the pre-primary and primary school children in our community at least once by 2022
The babies and children of New Beginningz, House of Safety, crept into our hearts unexpectedly. Our state of the art screener made it possible to screen babies as young as 3 months. We picked up a few problems that would have gone unnoticed for a long time. Treatment could start immediately and as one 4-year-old stated: I wear my magic glasses every day.
If you want us to come to your school, please contact us to arrange a date and time.
