EYEWEAR FOR KIDS – CHILDREN’S EYE CARE WEST LONDON
At Family Eyecare, we’re proud to offer the most comprehensive children’s eye care West London has to offer.
Children’s eye tests are free under the NHS. All under-16s and those aged 16-18 who are in full time education are also entitled to a voucher which can be used towards the cost of their spectacles, should they need them.
All children should have a full eye examination prior to joining primary school and regularly thereafter, normally once a year. A child’s vision is virtually fully developed by the age of about eight and therefore it is important to correct any visual defects before then in order to avoid lazy eyes and squints developing. The earlier the monitoring begins, the better the results. Often children under-perform at school due to uncorrected vision or problems relating to their sight.
At Family Eyecare, we believe that it is important to support your children’s eyes with glasses that they feel comfortable with in terms of look and feel, and therefore we supply a dedicated children’s collection that will have exactly what your child requires. We carry an incredibly large selection of children’s frames of different shapes, styles and colours of a very high standard in flexible metal, stainless steel or plastic with flexible hinges for added strength. The frames range from budget NHS frames to designer labels and specialist eyewear. We are proud to offer one of the most comprehensive collections of glasses for kids in London, far more extensive than many of the famous high street chains.
Contact lenses for children can often be an option for recreational use and sports. Our experienced optometrists will be happy to discuss the options with you. We can also provide prescription sports and/or swimming goggles for your child.
Our current children’s range includes the following:
