At our practice we recommend that children’s eyes are tested just before they start school – or even earlier. Actually, we strongly recommend it.
Children’s eye problems are easy to overlook or misinterpret. Concentration difficulties? Problems at school? These can both be signs that there’s an issue with a child’s eyes.
Focusing difficulties are just as common in children as they are in adults. But an optometrist who is experienced in assessing children’s eyes can spot any issues affecting their eyes now – as well as signs of any emerging problems.
Our optometrist, Adam Holliday, also works in the children’s eyecare team at hospitals in the East Midlands. His experience and his great skill at working with children ensures a no-stress eye test that will identify eyecare problems before they have a detrimental impact on their schooling and their life.
