Family eye care is important to us. We understand that children and teenagers have different eye care needs and we make sure that our service is specialised to suit even our youngest patients. Our testing equipment and procedures are varied for different age groups so all children get thorough testing in an interactive, stress-free environment.
Children's Eye Examinations
Eyesight is crucial to children’s well-being and development. How well a child can see has a lifelong effect on their education, development and daily life. With many eye conditions beginning in childhood, it is also very important to monitor children’s eye health.
Our eye tests for children are thorough and personalised for the needs of each child. Whether you’re worried about something specific or just keeping up-to-date on your child’s eye health we’ll make sure they get all the care they need.
What Is Myopia & Why Is It An Issue?
Myopia, or shortsightedness, affects more and more children each year. While it may not sound like a serious condition, myopia can cause significant difficulties in a child’s development and learning. Controlling myopia through specialised spectacle and contact lenses allows children to have better eyesight for longer. Ask your optometrist about the different ways to control myopia and they’ll find a solution that works for you.
Glasses For Children
As with eye care, children have different needs when it comes to glasses. We understand that every child is different and finding each child eyewear that they feel comfortable in and that provides them with excellent vision is our priority. We have a wide variety of styles to choose from and our dispensing team are great at helping kids find a pair that they’ll love.
