Are Eye Tests important for Children?
Eye tests are important for all of us, but even more important for our children. Many parents tell me that children have their eyes tested at school. Parents don’t seem to realise these are just basic assessments. These may be helpful, but children often need a more detailed test; especially if they are behind with their reading, spelling and writing.
Many children with learning difficulties have undetected learning difficulties
Many children with learning difficulties have undetected eye problems and therefore having this test can hopefully rule out this is your child’s problem. If not, at least you will know the reason why your child is having the problems. Hopefully, a simple pair of glasses will sort it out and in a few months, they will be on the way to overcoming their difficulties.
Please don’t keep putting it off. GET YOUR CHILDREN TESTED NOW! They can have a full eye test free in the (UK), under age of 18, or if they are still in full-time education. Yes, Free.
