One of the things that I want to know after I have children is the method of rearing children which I can employ on my children so that my children are guided to the true path that is, obtain the pleasure of Allah and become successful in this world and hereafter. I am sure if such method exists, all parents would like to implement the method to their children and obtain good children. All of us want to have good children but without employing the correct method of rearing children, a method that really work to our children; we will not get good children. I had been thinking about it for a very long time. Who will show me the correct method of bringing up children so that when I implement the method on my children, it works and produce results? Previously I do not know the method of rearing children that will produce good children. Sincerely, until now, I dare not write a book on methods of rearing children because I think I have not found the method that really works. What do I mean by a method that really works? A method that really works is the method when employed on our children it really produce good children. I have eight children and since they were small, I have tried many methods including the method that I have learned from my parent but I have not found the one that really works. Until recently, I was in the dark about child rearing but now I am convinced that I have found the one that will work. Now, all my children have grown up and the youngest is already 16 years old. At the age of 58, I am still motivated to find out the method of rearing children that will produce good children. (more…)
In March 2011, there are about three thousand (3000) registered opticians in Malaysia and about seven hundred (700) optometrists. These registered opticians are registered with Malaysian Optical council (MOC) as optician, whereby they are allowed under the Malaysian Optical Act (1991) to prescribe only spectacle to patients. They are not allowed to prescribe contact lenses unless they pass the qualifying examination offered by Malaysian Optical Council. According to International standard and practice in most advance countries of the world, these opticians are not qualified to prescribe spectacles and contact lenses to patients but are qualified only to dispense spectacles or contact lenses prescribed by the optometrists or ophthalmologists. These opticians are qualified to dispense spectacles or contact lenses prescribe by optometrists or ophthalmologists because they have obtained only a certificate in dispensing technology. The most common certificate of dispensing optician obtained by opticians in Malaysia is FBDO which stand for Fellow of British Dispensing Optician or FADO which stand for Fellow of Association Dispensing Optician. This fellowship is issued by the association after attending a course in dispensing technology for several months. In the United Kingdom, those with this fellowship are only qualified to dispense spectacles or contact lenses prescribe by Optometrists or Ophthalmologists, while in Malaysia under the Optical Act 1991, these dispensing opticians or commonly known as opticians and under the optical act 1991 with the clause; with the permission of the Health Minister are allowed to prescribe spectacles.

Congratulations to all graduate students! Optometry faculty graduates in a photo session with the Faculty Dean, Prof Dr Nasoha Saabin during the convocation ceremony held at PICC on Feb 4th 2012.
In Malaysia we may find some people with a squint eyes or strabismus. What is strabismus or squint eye? In Bahasa Malaysia strabismus or squint is call as mata juling.A person is said to have a squint eye when one of the two eyes is not directing to the same point as the other eye. In other word there is no similar focus point for both eyes. Because there is no similar focus point, the images receive by both of the eyes cannot be superimpose in the brain. Instead of the brain receiving the same images of the same objects and to be superimposed in the brain, the brain is now receiving two images of the different object which cannot be superimpose by the brain. In eyes with squint or strabismus, the brain is receiving two images of the different object which cannot be superimposed. When our brain cannot superimpose the two images view by the two eyes, our brain will take the drastic action of suppressing one of the images. Usually our brain wills supressed the retinal image of the lower quality. Our brain need to have two retinal images of the same object to be superimposed in order to have depth perception. Without two retinal images of the same object being superimpose on top of each other, no depth perception is possible. In other words, a person who has a squint or strabismus will not have a depth perception. A person with a squint may be able to see with a 6/6 vision but without any depth perception. What is the advantage of having a depth perception? With a depth perception a person is able to judge the size of an object more accurately. A driver with no depth perception will not be able to judge how far, he is driving from the car in front of him. A surgeon with no depth perception will not be able to accurately judge how far the tissues are from him. In other words, a person with a squint or strabismus will not have a depth perception and they will not become a good driver, pilot or a surgeon. (more…)
