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.

It was perfect. Safe and chilled with staggered times for patients so it's not congested. I wish everyone thought like this! I've been coming here since I was a child, and I'm a picky person. Everyone is so friendly and helpful, it is so enjoyable coming and having my eyes tested! The shop is sleek and beautiful, just like the glasses. They stock a full range for all tastes from fashion favourites to traditional classics. There is something for everyone. During Covid they've reassessed their processes and practices to ensure all their patients feel comfortable and safe, from staggering entry times to how you try in glasses. They've really thought about how to make their customers comfortable, not just following the guidelines but going above and beyond as they always do. I don't think I'll ever go elsewhere for my eyecare
