Childrens First Eye test

Ensure your child’s visual well-being: Schedule their first eye test around three and a half years old, but if you have any concerns earlier, tests can still be conducted at any age. Taking your child for an eye test before starting primary school provides peace of mind for their learning, and early tests are vital if there’s family history of eye issues like lazy eye or squints.

how much do children's eye tests cost?

The cost of a child’s eye test is covered by the NHS for all children under the age of 16. The cost is also covered for under 19’s in full time education

Visual Stress & Dyslexia

Treat visual stress and minimise the symptoms of Meares-Irlen Syndrome and dyslexia with the use of coloured lenses and overlays. The benefits can include:

  • Improved readability
  • Enhanced contrast
  • Reduced glare
  • Increased reading speed
  • Better comprehension

It’s important to note that coloured overlays may not be effective for everyone. Each person’s visual symptoms and needs are unique, and a professional evaluation is essential to determine the most suitable treatment options.
