Children's Eye Care

Did you know your kids can have their eyes tested from as young as one year old? As well as monitoring the development of your child’s vision, regular visits to the optician allows our qualified and experienced optometrists to spot any potential problems at an early stage.

 

As with the majority of medical conditions, the sooner eye problems are diagnosed the more likely they are to be successfully treated. However, in most cases children aren’t even aware they have eye conditions, so don’t rely on them to tell you. 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. For this reason, it’s important to make sure your child has their eyes tested regularly. We recommend a first examination no later than their 4th birthday, but earlier if you have any concerns or if there is a history of lazy eye or squint.

Behavioural Optometry 

We can offer specialist assessments and solutions for children with vision-related learning difficulties, such as losing their place when reading or losing focus very quickly. If you think your child may be suffering from vision problems that could be affecting their education, watch the video below to find out how Clare can help.
