Children eye tests

Did you know that one in four school-aged children, and one in twenty pre-schoolers have an undiagnosed eye condition?


One of the questions we get asked regularly here is: “When should children have their first eye test?” Our family team of optometrists can carefully examine your children’s eyes from any age. It’s important to ensure your child’s eyes are working as a pair and their muscles are working in the correct way from an early age. This also allows our expert team to track the development of your child’s vision through regular eye tests as they grow older.

It’s also vital that your child has an eye examination before they start school. Children typically have no awareness of how their sight should be, so they may not realise that their vision is anything out of the ordinary. It’s acknowledged that a child’s performance in school could be adversely affected if their vision is not crystal clear. For this reason, pro-active eye care for children is essential, as you cannot rely on them to tell you they have a problem.


Regardless of your child’s age, Mac, Bhavita or Kalpesh will find a way to keep your child constantly engaged during their eye examination. They are really friendly and laid-back so your child will feel at ease and might even enjoy the special attention they receive.

However, if at any point during your child’s eye examination you have any questions, please feel free to ask as we will be happy to explain everything to you in more detail. Although, do not worry too much; our optometrists will explain the condition of your child’s eye health and vision to you after the appointment in a way that is easy to understand.

If your child does require new glasses, we have a brilliant range of children’s frames that you could choose from. Whichever frame you decide for your child, we will assure them that they will look cool in the playground.


If it’s time for your children’s eye test, or you want to make sure their vision is in top condition, why not pop in, or book an appointment.
Simply call 020 8524 2887 today and a member of the team will be happy to help you.

If left untreated, these conditions could develop into a long term visual problem. For this reason, it’s important for children to have an eye test and a visit to an optician at least once a year.

Attending an appointment at Eyedeal Vision is one of those rare medical experiences that you can actually look forward to. It successfully combines the supportive care of a family-run enterprise that knows all about its customers' needs/worries with cutting-edge technology to best inform the detailed assessment. Such friendly professional competence is something that my wife and I truly appreciate and would recommend to anyone. Sincere thanks to all the staff there from Ruth and Martin Keay.

Getting my cataracts sorted -- on your professional recommendation-- has really changed my life for the better.... Fortunately, now with a new prescription, I will still need to pop in - regularly - to see your latest styles as well as to find a new pair of 2021 sunglasses

I have been going to Eyedeal Vision for many years now. The team is built of very friendly professional staff who always put your needs first in every appointment. The eye examination is very thorough and Kalpesh and Bhav spend time making sure to investigate and explain all eye problems being experienced. Sophie is brilliant in assisting to pick and explain the right lenses and frames for you and there are many styles and ranges to choose from. Peter does a great job in adjusting or repairing your glasses so they are right for you and making sure your lenses and frames are right for your everyday lifestyle. I would highly recommend to anyone needing an opticians appointment.

I don't think you could have done any better with all the Covid restrictions to deal with. The new equipment is very impressive and I am very pleased indeed with all aspects of the service. The team at Eyedeal vision are handling the restrictions of Covid superbly. There is some very sophisticated new equipment installed since my last eye test over a year ago, and as I am diabetic, the thoroughness of the examination using this was greatly appreciated. As always the service delivery and friendliness of everyone was top quality. Highly recommended.
