Children’s Eye Tests

Around one million children in the UK have an undiagnosed vision problem. Don’t let your child be one of them

If a child has a problem with their sight which isn’t addressed by age seven or eight, they could suffer from reduced vision for the rest of their life.

That’s why we recommend that your child has their eyes tested at three years of age, then once every year after that. This will allow us to be proactive should any sight problems arise, and to get your child into the healthy habit of visiting your local opticians regularly.

Early detection means early prevention, so watch out for these signs of poor sight in your child:

Squinting

Poor performance

Sitting closer to the television screen

Clumsiness

CO-55

Regular headaches

Frequent rubbing of the eyes

Behavioural problems

Our children’s eye examinations are designed to be informal and friendly, placing them in a relaxed environment and putting them at ease.

Your child is entitled to free NHS-funded eye assessments, and we’re proud to stock frames which will suit almost any budget.

Our children’s frames include:
