Neilson Opticians is a child friendly practice. It is often thought that you cannot accurately perform children’s eye test’s until the child can read, but we have invested in several specialist children’s eye tests that enable us to do a full eye examination for your children at a very early age.
Children’s eye care is precious. Eye problems like long-sightedness, short-sightedness, squints and lazy eyes can affect their development and learning progress at school. The sooner a problem is detected the more effectively it can be treated, for example by Children’s Glasses. If eyesight problems are left undetected, this may cause permanent disabilities and vision defects. It is for this reason we recommend early eye examinations, at least by the age of three.
