Get them started early

We understand eye examinations can be overwhelming for some children. That is why we make the experience as fun and as friendly as possible. There is no need to worry if your child is unable to read as there are many different ways of testing their eyes. Our service is first class in spotting and diagnosing any underlying conditions there may be with your child's eye health. We feel it is important to see children every year from the age of two as most issues if spotted early are reversible.
