Your child doesn’t want to be bored during their eye test, so at Bowen Opticians we make it fun

Did you know that one in five school aged children is suffering from an undiagnosed eye condition? As well as being an alarming statistic this is also an unnecessary one; children’s eye examinations are FREE.

childrens eye exam2Although most children have excellent sight, for those who don’t, it’s important that we pick it up early. Your child won’t always tell you if there’s a problem so it’s important to get their vision checked, even if you don’t have any concerns.

If your little one is diagnosed with a minor eye problem (such as a lazy eye or a squint) it’s very likely that it can be completely rectified if it’s detected at an early age. This means the sooner you can get things checked over the better!

Lots of people are under the impression their youngster can’t have their eyes tested until they’re able to read; this is a myth! A well-trained optician is able to examine the eyes of even the youngest children by performing a number of specially developed tests. Therefore, you’re recommended to have your child’s eyes tested from as young as one year old.

You might think that the last thing your little one wants to do is sit in the opticians chair, but at Bowen Opticians we make sure it’s always fun. We do everything we can to make sure children don’t get bored from the moment they arrive.
