Children’s Eye Health

Eye care should begin at an early age, particularly if you notice anything unusual about your child’s eyes or about how they use their vision or if there is a family history of eye problems.

In fact, we recommend every child should have their eyes examined by an optometrist before the age of three; some eye problems, such as lazy eye, can be corrected if caught early on.

It is particularly important for children to have an eye examination before they begin school as undetected vision problems can cause learning difficulties.
