Children’s Eye Tests

Don’t rely on your child to tell you they’ve having problems with their vision – they may not realise


You want the very best for your child in all aspects of their life, don’t you? However, did you know that 1 in 4 children have an undiagnosed eye condition? If your child is one of them, their future could be affected.

It’s important your little one is having their eyes tested once a year from a young age – at least before they go to school. This is because their eyes are developing rapidly during this time, and therefore even the smallest changes in their eye health could indicate a potential problem.

Additionally, many minor eye conditions can be completely rectified if they are diagnosed before your child turns eight. After this age however, any problems could cause permanent damage to your child’s vision. In some cases, undiagnosed eye conditions can cause frustration at school and possibly underachievement too.

At Vision Care we appreciate that your child’s vision is extremely important. We also know that they doesn’t want to waste precious play time at the opticians. That’s why we make children’s sight tests as fun as possible – we use interactive methods and picture charts – to help keep even the most wriggly little ones entertained whilst they have their eyes and vision tested.
