11 August 2017 - Pupil Preparation

As you are preparing your children for school, sorting out uniforms, stationary and lunch boxes, why not make sure that your children’s eyes are also ready? Many people are unaware that the NHS offers free tests to children under 16 and full-time students under 19.

Edmonds & Slatter Opticians are encouraging local parents to have their children’s eyes checked over the next few weeks before they return to school. Regular eye examinations are important for your child’s health and personal development. If children have poor vision, they’ll find it difficult to learn at school or enjoy everyday childhood activities. If detected early, many problems can be easily corrected, usually with glasses and conditions such as a squint or “lazy eyes” need not become lifelong problems.

Poor eyesight is not always obvious to parents, or even teachers. Around 80% of a child’s learning occurs visually, yet many children do not see well enough to reach their full potential. Children may not recognise that they have a visual defect so many parents think there’s nothing wrong with their child’s eyesight, not realizing that vision can change quickly as young eyes develop. That’s why annual eye examinations are so important for children.
There are a number of tell-tale signs that your child may be experiencing problems with their vision. Typical warning signs are:

Bumping into objects
Headaches and tendency to rub eyes frequently
Poor performance with school work
Peering closely at books and TV
Red, sore or irritated eyes

If your child does need glasses, you’ll receive a contribution towards the cost and be able to choose from a wide range of spectacles specially designed for children’s faces. To book an appointment please contact your local opticians in either Blaby 0116 2777733, Glenfield 0116 2871025 or Lutterworth 01455 556053.
