Chilren's Eyecare

Childrens eycare is a particuar speciality of the practice. We see children from the age of 18 months onwards and we encourage parents to bring all children in for a check up, particularly if there is family history of "squint "or "lazy eye" as these two conditions are quite manageable if picked up at an early age.

Our computerised testing equipment means that if your child is not yet able to read, or are perhaps lacks in confidence, we can use alternative tests to enable us to assess their eyes effectively.
