Children Eye Care

Every year, every child over the age of four should have their eyes examined by a professional.

Children Eye Care

About the service

Children who have eye problems face multiple barriers such as inability to read blackboards in school, see and recognize others from a distance, and to play some team sports.The ability to access good eye care can make a great difference in the lives of these children, both in the short and long term.

Learning how to see is a long process which starts even before the child is born, but progresses rapidly through the first six years of life.

Any issue with this learning process during this time can result in the brain compensating around it rather than developing normally, and this is particularly so when a vision problem goes uncorrected for a long time.
