Caring for your children's eyes
We recommend bringing your child in to have their first eye examination around their 4th birthday, however, there is no minimum age to eye tests.
Children often cannot identify a problem with their vision or eye health, so if you are concerned then do come in to see us.
Our kid's eye tests are friendly, fun and relaxed. We thoroughly examine their vision, eye health and development.
It doesn’t matter whether your child can read yet as our qualified team has a range of tests available using pictures, symbols and numbers to assess the vision of children from a very young age.
Importance of regular eye tests for children
Children develop rapidly, with 80% of learning achieved through sight. Problems with vision can mean difficulty seeing the board or reading at school, which can quickly develop into boredom, disruptive behaviour and even a lack of interest in education altogether.
Children’s eye examinations are available on the NHS if they are aged 16 and under or if they are aged 16, 17 or 18 and in full-time education.
