Our Vision & Mission


Our eyes, the windows to our souls give us good indications on what’s going on with our body. Our emotions and our health are interlinked with each other and are mapped out within or via our eyes. Our mission is to get people to understand that our bodies, especially our eyes, talk to us.

With our holistic & personalized approach to eyecare, Margate Eyecare would like to translate what your eyes are saying to you.


From simple ailments like Anemia, thyroid disease and diabetes to more complex conditions with brain involvement and tumor detecting, our eyes can often be the first warning signs of impending disease. We follow the adage ‘prevention is better than cure’, and would like to promote regular annual eye tests. Detecting vision deficiencies and eye diseases at a young age would be instrumental in preventing or minimizing sensory deprivation that would affect various aspects of one’s life.

  • Comprehensive visual ocular examinations & management via spectacles, contact lenses, vision therapy, medication or referrals.

  • Ocular foreign body removal.

  • Issuing of vision certificates for driver’s license renewal

  • Repairs and after service for all spectacle eye wear

Myopia Control


Due to very young children's extensive use of digital devices, Myopia, commonly known as shortsightedness, has become very prevalent. If Interventions to control this shortsightedness are not implemented, your child's future is at stake. Immediate repercussions are poor school performance and poor self-esteem.  Later on in life, if Myopia progression is not addressed in childhood,  due to the stretching of the eyeball, your child is at risk of developing serious diseases like retinal detachment and glaucoma.


  1. Take your child for annual eye tests especially if there is a history of spectacle wear among the parents or siblings.
  2. See an optometrist that practices myopia control.
  3. Encourage your child to have plenty of outdoor activity.  Exercise, sunlight, and other wavelengths of light stimulate the healthy development of your child's eye.
  4. Encourage a healthy diet with fresh fruit and vegetables.
  5. Limit your child's screen time and practice the 20/20 rule for digital hygiene. For Every 20 minutes of screen time, look  20 metres away for 20 seconds. This helps to relieve the strain on our eye muscles.
