Bright colours and funky cases make choosing spectacles a fun experience.
Looking after your child’s health is an important element of being a parent, yet when it comes to your child’s eye health many families are seemingly in the dark.
Here are some eye-opening points about children’s eyecare that we want all parents to know:
C4 Sightcare have a proud tradition of catering for children of all ages when it comes to eye care.
Children need more frequent eye tests as their vision develops quicker as they grow. Every six months is recommended.
Children’s eyesight is fully developed at age eight, but can be examined at a much younger age - well before they can read.
Only 10% of parents know if their child’s school offers a vision screening programme.
Eye tests for children are completely free at C4 Sightcare to those under 19 in full time education.
We have a special interest in the eyecare of Babies, Infants and young Children.
A comprehensive range of spectacles, sports glasses and sunglasses in stock.
Students in further education may qualify for financial help for eye tests and to buy glasses or contact lenses.
Children spend more time outside, and like skin, their eyes need protection from UV rays with the use of sunglasses.
