Eye examinations are free for children at regular intervals throughout their childhood. We recommend that every child aged 3 onwards should have an eye examination and we can test form 6 months old. Children’s vision is integral to their learning and regular checks will ensure that they have the best start.
We want your child to love coming along for their eye examination and have created our own kids’ club for ages 3-10. We have our own characters Bop, Tom, Pop & Mom who feature on stickers and the club membership cards.
Your child will also receive a goody bag each time they come. We also run competitions throughout the year which you can register for with your email address.
If your child does need glasses we have a fantastic range available. Our Dispensing Opticians are on hand to help choose from those free on a voucher or upgrade from a wide selection including Ray-Ban, Oakley, Etnia Barcelona and X-Ide. We also offer contact lens fitting and sports glasses.
Did you know that children’s eyes are more at risk of sun damage than adults? More than 80% of UV exposure will occur before the age of 18. Whether or not your child needs a prescription, sunglasses are a must. We stock a great range of options for your child all with UV protection.
Free children’s NHS examinations are available at both of our practices. Simply call 01772 822591 (Preston) or 01253 734791 (Lytham) to book.
