It is easy to miss problems with children’s eyesight. Kids often don’t realise that they have a problem and children grow so fast that their eyesight changes quickly too.

Testing children’s eyesight needs a sensitive approach and the right equipment. For instance, we use a computerised test chart so your child doesn’t need to be able to read to have their eyes examined. With fun pictures and characters they can’t wait to come back!

We advise that you have your child’s eyes examined before they start school, but they can have a check ­up earlier if you have concerns, or if there is a family history of eye vision problems.

Children’s eye examinations are FREE as they are NHS funded and we advise that you have them checked annually.
