Children’s Eyecare

We strive at Mike Addison Opticians to provide comprehensive eyecare to children of all ages, as good vision throughout childhood plays an essential role in enabling a healthy and happy development. 

Regular eye tests are recommended for children under the age of 16, to ensure that the wiring between the eyes and the brain is taking place the way it should be.Children may not know that there is an issue with their vision, as they do not know any difference. This can make it difficult to distinguish if your child is having problems without the aid of an eye examination. 

An eye examination can identify certain conditions, such as a squint or amblyopia (lazy eye), that may have developed during your child’s early years. Detecting these conditions earlier will enable more successful outcomes for your child’s visual development, as treatment is more effective when these conditions are less advanced. 

We have access to a wide range of testing equipment to make the eye test less daunting for your child, including computerised test charts that use pictures and shapes as a tool to check vision. We also stock a variety of spectacle ranges that are specifically designed to provide the upmost comfort to your child, whilst also considering the rapid development of children’s faces.
