This is the one
Test your child cannot afford to miss
A child’s eyes are constantly in use; whether they are reading, writing, using a screen or playing sports.
However because children are not always aware that there may be an issue with their vision, problems can often go undetected.
Poor vision can interfere with their ability to learn and can impact their physical, emotional and social development and wellbeing.
When to get your child’s
It is important for all children to have an eye test before they start school and every two years thereafter (or more often if recommended by their Optometrist).
So help them be their best and book them in for an eye test.
It may be the most important thing you do for them this year.
