Hayes Opticians - Children wearing glasses


Eye health starts early!

Regular eye examinations from birth are essential for every child's healthcare and are essential to ensure normal visual development. Without regular eye tests, children with sight problems may have difficulty at school and lose confidence or fall behind. Eye tests can also help spot eye diseases and other health problems, such as diabetes, in the early stages. The good news is that our high-quality eye tests for children are easy to arrange, they're free on the NHS, and we make them as easy and fun as possible. It doesn't matter if your child doesn't know the alphabet as the Optometrist will use pictures and shapes to assess their sight.

Special eye tests for kids

An eye test with a Hayes Opticians Optometrist is totally painless and quick too - it takes just 30 - 40 minutes. You can, of course, stay with your child while they're having it. We’ll check for a number of things, including:

Highlight iconThe standard of your child's vision
Highlight iconWhether they have a turned or a lazy eye
Highlight iconTheir hand-eye co-ordination
Highlight iconWhether their eyes are healthy and developing normally
Highlight iconWhether your child is short-sighted, long-sighted or has an astigmatism
Highlight iconWhether their eyes are working together

Children and contact lenses

Clinically it is safe for most children to wear contact lenses, though we advise waiting until they're old enough to clean and look after them properly unsupervised. They should also feel comfortable about putting lenses in and taking them out, and be prepared to visit us for regular check-ups.

For many children, especially teenagers, contact lenses can be a great choice - especially for playing sport.
