VISION FOR THE KIDS

It is not necessary for a child to be able to read or even speak in order for eye professionals like Stephen to check if glasses are required to improve their vision.

Testing the Eyes of a Child

Stephen Rea Opticians offers child-friendly tests that will tell us – and you – everything we need to know about your child’s eye health. Children don’t have to be able to read to have an eye test.
We’ll ask you about family history and check your child’s sight against expected levels of development for their age. We’ll assess their vision and see if it needs correcting, then discuss the results clearly with you.
Children qualify for an NHS voucher and we have a great range of kids glasses ranging from coloured metals to funky plastics, cost covered by your NHS Voucher, meaning complete pairs of glasses and repairs at no charge.

Child-friendly Eye Care

Once they’ve had their first eye exam, your child will soon get into the habit of having their eyes checked regularly. We like to see children at least every year to ensure we and you are looking after their precious sight and to help you with any questions you have about your child’s vision.

Come in with your child to see us anytime. Older children may be interested in contact lenses – click here for more information.
