We know that children’s vision plays a crucial role in their learning and personal development, School performance, sports and quality of life, but most importantly their future.
Children are less likely to recognise any changes in their vision that need addressing and therefore, regular eye tests are crucial for children as they grow and develop. Being able to detect any issues with their sight at this crucial stage of development can also help to ensure your child can continue to reach their full potential.
Below we discuss how often your child should have an eye test, what this entails and common conditions that children are more prone to.
Children under 16 are entitled to a free NHS funded eye examination every year and are also eligible for an NHS optical voucher helps towards the cost of glasses or contact lenses.

Sensitivity to light and/or excessive tearing
