Child’s eyes

Most eye problems in children can be reversed or corrected, if detected in the early stages. It is important to remember that your child does not have to be able to read, or even be able to talk coherently in order to have a thorough eye test, detecting problems early on is vital to preventing serious eye diseases that may cause vision damage or loss.

The essence of a child’s eye examination is flexibility which requires varying the examination according to the child’s age and degree of co-operation.

Our optometrists have a special instrument called a retinoscope which enables them to see whether any visual problem exists within your child’s eyes. Book your child’s vision examination here.
