Children and Eye Wear

  • It is just as important to have eye examinations as a child as it is for an adult.  Early detection of visual conditions in children can impact on a child's visual function later on in life.  Children with parents who are short sighted (Myopia) especially are at greater risk of developing Myopia, so should be regularly checked through their childhood to monitor development and progression.  Click Here to find out more about Myopia
