Children's eyesight

Should my children have their eyes examined?

The answer is definitely YES although, as a general rule, it is not normally necessary for children to undertake routine examinations until they reach school age.


However, a surprising number of new born children have vision irregularities, usually of a minor nature. So, if you suspect that your child has defective vision then you should contact us immediately. You will be relieved to know that babies of just a few months old can be examined and almost all defects can be overcome.

Incidentally, your child's eye examination is paid for by the NHS and vouchers are available if spectacles are required.

If you have any questions about the eyecare of your children, then please do contact us for helpful (and free) advice.
