Children’s Eye Examinations
Don’t let poor vision hinder your child’s education. A lazy eye can cause permanent damage if not treated before age seven, early screening is free and can detect and prevent visual problems.
School screening is no longer universally available, so we provide a FREE examination for both the sight
and health of your child’s eyes. If spectacles are required, we provide FREE Frames & Lenses for Children & Students or £45.00 towards any frame & lenses in the practice.
We have built a reputation for personal attention, during many years of experience working with the NHS, to provide children and adults with high quality eye-care and eyewear.
The NHS currently recommends that every child under the age of 16 should have a sight test, every year, to ensure healthy development of their eyes and early detection of any visual problems.
Full eyesight screening is not automatically provided at schools, placing the responsibility on parents and teachers to recognise a child with visual difficulty, which can be hard to spot as a problem like a lazy eye might not be apparent, even to the child.
This can result in many visual problems being diagnosed late and children being left with permanent visual problems which could have been prevented by early detection.
Poor vision can seriously hinder your child’s education, which can be avoided by a free regular sight test and thorough eye examination, which we provide free on the NHS. If corrective spectacles are required, the NHS will provide every child under 16 and full time students to age 19, with a voucher for free frames.
