Good vision is crucial to a child's early educational, functional and social development.
All our optometrists are parents themselves, so know how to make an eye test a fun and enjoyable experience for children. As many as 1 in 5 children have uncorrected vision problems, so we recommend all children have regular check-ups from age 4. Good vision is critical to a child’s educational, functional and social development, so we’re happy to see younger children if you have concerns about their eyes or vision. Sight tests are FREE on the NHS for all children under 16, plus children receive a voucher to use towards the cost of glasses. If your child requires glasses, we have a great range for children. Prices start from £39 plus NHS voucher for two pairs. For style conscious teenagers who have outgrown the children's range, we have a "student discount" of £20 off an adult frame, including designer ranges like RayBan and Oakley. We are happy to consider fitting children with contact lenses from the age of 8.
