Clear vision is crucial for a child’s overall development and learning. Often, children are unaware of any issues with their eyesight, unaware that they are not reaching their full visual potential. If focusing errors go undetected during the early stages, it can result in reduced vision in one or both eyes, which cannot be fully corrected with glasses, contact lenses, or eye surgery.
At our centre, we understand that children do not need to be able to read or speak to undergo an eye examination. We employ a range of techniques and specialised equipment to assess if there are any visual difficulties or problems.
It’s important to note that eye examinations for children under the age of 16 are covered by the NHS (National Health Service). Additionally, if eyewear is required, children are eligible for an optical voucher that can be used to help cover the cost of the glasses.
Ensuring optimal vision for children is our priority, and we are committed to providing comprehensive eye care and support to maximise their visual potential, setting them up for success in their learning and overall development.
