Back to school eye exam

Posted on 19th August 2014

Now is the time to book your children in for a back to school eye exam. Uncorrected visual problems can have a detrimental effect on academic performance so ensure your children have their eyes examined at least every two years.

Many young people are put off coming to see us because they are concerned they will be told they need glasses. However, more and more children and teens are opting for contact lenses. We will ensure they are shown how to look after them and they will quickly become part of everyday life.

 

So if your child is due a visit, please reassure them that, should they require a correction to their vision, glasses aren’t the only option. It’s never too early to fit contact lenses. We routinely fit primary school children and there is no minimum age requirement for contact lenses. Every case is different.
