Great things await for the children who visit Eyes Optical. We stock the latest frames with consultants who understand the latest trends to make their experience amazing every time, and allow their confidence to remain strong.

Children under 7 may be recommended to have drops to help aid the checking of their prescription. We can do this on the same day and needs 30 minutes to take effect, and causes near focus blurring for between 8-24 hours. They will be able to see far relatively normally but may be light sensitive. It’s a good idea to bring some sunglasses to help any light sensitivity they might feel.

These are standard checks that all optometrists are required to do under the NHS eye examination and if the optometrists feels appropriate. If you are concerned about any aspect of the eye check, feel free to speak to the optometrist at the start or during the examination. If you feel you need a longer appointment time for anything, feel free to ask when making it.
