Our eyes are hard at work all day long. At your (home) workplace, in traffic, in the classroom and even at home in front of the television in the evening, your eyes are constantly making an effort. Maybe you or your children are experiencing some complaints that you have already linked to the health of your eyes, such as blurred vision or dry and tired eyes. But you can also suffer from fatigue or headaches – complaints that you may not directly link to the health of your eyes.

Children nowadays spend an average of 5 hours a day behind a screen. This can lead to eye complaints that they sometimes keep walking with. A shame, because many complaints can be resolved with a tailor-made vision solution.
