Child-friendly and NHS eye tests for your little ones
Caring for young eyes
During their early years, eyesight helps children learn about the world around them.
Later in life, as kids progress through school, their eyesight allows them to read, study and explore. As a result, being able to see well is critical to your child's development.
In most cases children aren’t even aware that they have any problems with their eyes as they don’t know any different. However, some eye conditions need to be treated sooner rather than later for the treatment to be successful. That’s why it’s important to make sure your child has regular eye tests.
Typically we recommend the first eye test is about the time they start school, but it can be earlier if you have any worries about their vision. Children’s eye tests are covered by the NHS.
We try and make our kids appointments as relaxed and as fun as possible. It doesn’t matter if they can’t read letters yet as we have other tricks up our sleeves to ensure an accurate eye exam!
Our Optometrists are experienced in catering for young eyes and will take great care to ensure that your child receives a thorough eye test and the care they need for healthy vision.
Full of fun colours and durable materials, our range of children's eyewear will leave your little one feeling great and seeing clearly.
We will take the time to carefully fit any frames to ensure that they get the most out of their glasses.
Your child may also be suitable for, or prefer, contact lenses. We can advise on the best options for them to help them feel confident and stay active.
