Due to the current Covid-19 situation, children are spending more time looking at the screens of their tablets, laptops and mobile phones. Online learning requires their eyes to be glued to the screen for several hours a day, which can cause serious problems called computer vision syndrome.

Optometrists at Mediclinic Welcare Hospital and Mediclinic Deira recommend the computer vision exam, which easily detects any vision problems that might contribute to computer vision syndrome.

If your child is between two and 18 years old, book their complimentary vision screenings, valid up to December 31, 2020. 
Symptoms include:

  • Eyestrain
  • Headaches
  • Blurred vision
  • Dry eyes
  • Neck and shoulder pain

These symptoms may be caused by other factors such as uncorrected vision needs, glare, poor lighting, and improper posture.

Appointments are mandatory and available Saturday-Thursday, 12pm – 5pm at Mediclinic Welcare Hospital, and Saturday-Wednesday, 12 pm – 5pm at Mediclinic Deira.
