Your children are the most important thing in the world to you. There is not anything you would not do to keep them healthy and happy.

 Yet, in the UK, one out of every five children is suffering from an undiagnosed eyesight problem. Keep a lookout for the telltale signs: sitting too close to the television, holding a book too close to their face or squinting. Perhaps what you take for youthful clumsiness could be a manifestation of their inability to accurately judge distance.

Even if your child is not exhibiting any of the symptoms described above, it makes good parental sense to take them for regular children’s eye tests – just to be on the safe side.

Should the results of your child’s eye examination tell us that they need corrective lenses, your child (if they’re under 16 or under 19 in full time education) will qualify for an NHS voucher entitling them to free spectacles from our stylish children’s range.
