Providing each patient with the best possible
solution for their eye care needs

Why get your child’s eyes tested?

Regular eye tests are particularly important for children because it will highlight any problems at an early stage. A child may not realise there is a problem with their vision so without routine tests this could be missed. And that could affect their development and education.

In older children, signs of a possible eye
problem can include:

  • Complaining of headaches or eye strain
  • Problems reading – for example, they may need to hold books close to their face and they may lose their place regularly
  • Problems with hand-eye co-ordination – for example, they may struggle to play ball games
  • Being unusually clumsy
  • Regularly rubbing their eyes
  • Sitting too close to the TV

Children’s eyes also need protection from the sun, maybe even more so as they tend to spend a lot of time outside. A hat and sunglasses are a must in summer, just like suntan lotion.

Child’s vision

A child’s vision should be tested at least once a year from age 3 upwards. You can get a free test until they turn 16. If they need glasses you can also get a voucher towards the cost and we have a lovely selection of free frames.
