Chinese term or phrase: 有點兒 (utf-8)
Please consider the following sentence:

花先生有點兒眼花,可是他看書看得比我快。

I want to translate the above sentence as "Mr. Fa's vision is not very good, but he can read faster than I."

I am having trouble with the expression 有點兒. Does it mean "sometimes" as does the expression 有時, or does it mean "a little" as in 一點兒, or does it mean something entirely different?
