Fourways Mall Optometrist offers free screenings in honour of Glaucoma Week
Dynamic Vision Fourways Mall Optometrist, is honouring World Glaucoma Week, taking place this week from 11-18 March 2018, by performing free Glaucoma screenings to individuals in the area.
Anjana Mahadeo, Owner and Optometrist at Dynamic Vision Fourways Mall Optometrist says they offer free screenings during World Glaucoma Week to help raise awareness and assist people with early diagnosis of the disease to preserve their vision.
“Glaucoma is a progressive disease and can be very difficult to control if already in an advanced stage. The problem is that there aren’t any warning signs until the disease is already advanced and it is therefore important to visit an optometrist regularly to perform a comprehensive eye examination.”
“Glaucoma can be controlled and treated effectively, but damage that already exists cannot be reversed. In this case prevention is the cure and the earlier the diagnosis is done, the less chance you have of losing your vision.”
“To pick up on eye-health disorders in time, visit an optometrist at least every 12 months,” concludes Mahadeo.
For more information on general eye care, please visit the Dynamic Vision Fourways Mall Optometrist website.

Johannesburg, Gauteng, 26 October 2017 – KaChing, the innovative ticketless way to pay for your parking, announced today that they are expanding their footprint of retail parking sites. Customers at the Mall of Africa will be able to pay for their parking using KaChing as of Thursday 26th October 2017. KaChing uses automatic number plate recognition cameras and smartphone app technology to make paying for parking so much more convenient.
“KaChing offers all people who park a massively more convenient way to pay for your parking. You no longer need to take a parking ticket, you don’t need cash, there are no queues to pay, and you have no hassle with change or lost tickets.” Says Mike Clark, Business Development Executive of KaChing.
KaChing allows parking customers to use flexible payment options such as pre-pay, top up or credit card payment to securely pay for their parking. In addition to ease of payment, the app also gives customers the security to track their parking activity online, and the option to connect multiple vehicles to one account.
KaChing first launched on a commercial pilot basis in 2016, and is available at Melrose Arch, Thrupps and Morningside Shopping Centres in Johannesburg to mention only a few of the growing list of properties offering ticketless and cashless parking solutions
Clark goes to say “We are also proud of the fact that in the past year, there have been zero car thefts from KaChing users. Our technology significantly improves your vehicle’s security while you park. The pre-paid option is also proving a winner with 60% of our users paying through pre-paid.”
Signing up for KaChing is easy and effortless; you can download the app from the Apple App Store or Google Play. All you need to do is register with your vehicle number plate, load your pre-paid account, or choose the credit card option.
It is a simple drive IN drive OUT experience. The number plate recognition cameras at each entry and exit automatically pick you up and open the boom, and you don’t even need to stop. You pay the same parking tariff as you normally would, but now with much greater ease and convenience.
