Kid's Optical Options

As a child grows their eyes develop, which means their vision can change. That’s why it’s so important to have your child’s eye sight checked on a regular basis. If your child does require optical assistance, we’ll find a solution to fit their needs and lifestyle.

Below we have outlined the two most common solution and the benefits they can bring to your child.


The most common method to rectify children’s eye sight is glasses. Here at M&S Opticians we pride ourselves on supplying good quality, durable and stylish glasses that children will actually want to wear.

We even offer a free range of kids glasses!

Contact lenses

Contact lenses can be another great choice for kids, offering them the freedom to enjoy an active lifestyle. Evidence suggests they can also help slow the progression of short-sightedness (Myopia), the most common eye condition in children.

One of the most common questions we get at M&S Opticians, is ‘When can my child start wearing contact lenses?’

The short answer – any age.
