Child Eyes

Your child may not complain of any problems with their eyes, but if you notice anything that seems unusual, trust your instincts and have it checked out. For instance, if your child sits very close to the TV, rubs their eyes, blinks a lot or holds objects very close to their face to look at them, talk to your eyecare professional.

It’s important that you take your child for regular eye tests from a young age because as well as having an impact on what your child sees, poor eyesight can affect learning ability and self-esteem.

Once they’ve started school, it is recommended that children have regular eye tests at least once every two years or as recommended by your eye care professional.
