Clear vision plays a vital role in a child’s overall development and learning. Unfortunately, children may not always be aware of any vision problems that hinder their full potential. If focusing errors go unnoticed in the early stages, it can result in reduced vision in one or both eyes that cannot be fully corrected through spectacles, contact lenses, or eye surgery.
It’s important to note that assessing a child’s eyes does not require them to read or communicate verbally. We have a variety of techniques and equipment at our disposal to determine if there are any visual difficulties or underlying issues.
For children under 16, eye examinations are covered by the NHS. Additionally, if eyewear is needed, they are eligible for an optical voucher that can be used to help cover the cost.
Ensuring the visual well-being of children is a priority, and we are dedicated to providing comprehensive eye care services to support their optimal development and learning. Don’t hesitate to bring your child in for an examination, as early detection and intervention can make a significant difference in their visual health.
