Children's Eyecare

We care for your children’s eyes to help protect their well-being and development.


Regular eye tests are important for children of all ages – they not only check to see if they could benefit from glasses or contact lenses but look out for eye conditions and abnormalities that could become a problem in the future. We recommend yearly eye tests for children and provide the latest testing methods in a comfortable and relaxed environment. 

Kid's Eye Tests

Eye examinations for children are different from those for adults. As well as tailoring our tests specifically for different age groups, our optometrists will track visual development and look out for signs of conditions that often appear in childhood. This means that children who attend regular eye tests will have any issues taken care of quickly, which can help protect them from the difficulties that come with vision loss.

What Is Myopia And  Why Is It A Problem?

One common problem for children is myopia. Also known as shortsightedness, this condition makes distant objects appear blurry or unfocused. For school-aged children, this can mean difficulty seeing the whiteboard and playing sports. Myopia gets worse over time, so finding a myopia management option that works is especially important.


We now offer spectacle and contact lens myopia control options to suit the needs of each child. Get in touch today and we can help you find a myopia control option that works for you. 

Glasses For Children

Children have specific needs when it comes to glasses. Not only do they prefer different styles, but their glasses also need to be a different shape to fit comfortably and to be durable and flexible. We make sure all of our glasses for kids meet a high standard of quality and always offer plenty of designs, styles and colours to appeal to different tastes and preferences.
