Did you know that around 1 in 5 children suffer from an undiagnosed eye condition? Many struggle to enjoy their time at school and often disrupt lessons because they are frustrated. This may be down to the fact that they can’t see the board or identify words close-up.
Your children may not be able to tell you whether or not they have an eye condition, simply because they may think that changes in their vision are normal.
So what is the solution?
A thorough eye examination with a dedicated optometrist every 12 months and continuing through education.
This will help to ensure that any eye conditions that are likely to cause problems can be detected and treated quickly and efficiently.
We recommend that you accompany your children through the process and use the advice of the optometrist to ensure that their vision remains healthy and protected. If you have any questions regarding diet, visual aids or anything you can do to protect your children’s vision, please don’t hesitate to ask our optometrists during the examination.
It’s important that your children recognise a visit to their optician as a fun and exciting experience. And as you know, the best way to engage them is to relate to the things they already enjoy.
With this in mind, we stock a wide range of children’s eyewear with their favourite cartoon characters and brands. We want to ensure that your children can see the benefits of using quality eyewear to help their education and vision. While we help you choose their eyewear, we will endeavour to give you as much information about the eyewear that you choose and advise you on how best to look after them.
As your children age, they will become more conscious of their lifestyle Children that are used to participating in robust sporting activities and those that don’t really like the glasses they wear may want to try using contact lenses.
