2 August 2018 - Classroom Ready


Optometrist Vikesh Chauahn, of Edmonds & Slatter opticians is encouraging all local parents to have their children’s eyes checked during the month of August before they return to school.

When many parents were at school they had their vision screened by the school nurse and assume that this still happens with their own children. Parents are often unaware that in Leicestershire there are NO vision checks or eye screening services of any kind currently offered within the schools system.

This makes including a sight test in your ‘back to school’ routine all the more important and is a great way to ensure that your child’s vision is not forgotten about. Many people are also unaware that the NHS offers free standard eye tests to all children under the age of 16 and all full-time students under the age of 19. For a small fee you can also include Optomap Digital retinal screening within your child’s eye examination.

Mr Chauhan said “Children may not recognize that they have a visual defect and it’s also easy for parents to think there is nothing wrong with their child’s eyesight, not realizing that vision can change quickly as young eyes develop.”
He continued,  “20% of students starting their reception year have been found to have an undiagnosed vision problem. That’s why annual eye examinations are so important for all children.”

Mr Vikesh Chauhan


If your child does need glasses, you will receive a contribution from the NHS towards the cost and be able to choose from a wide range of spectacles especially designed for children’s faces.

Why not take part in Edmond & Slatter’s awareness campaign by having your child’s eyes examined this August? To book an appointment please contact Edmonds & Slatter at any of their three practices on: Blaby 0116 277 7733, Lutterworth 01455 556053, Glenfield 0116 287 1025
