If your child grows up with an undiagnosed visual issue, this could significantly affect their learning. It is estimated that one in four children struggle at school because of a sight problem, which in turn can seriously affect their learning.
Additionally, many minor eye issues such as a squint or amblyopia (a lazy eye) can be treated with significant results, but only before the age of 8.
Thankfully, you can ensure that your child isn’t suffering from visual problems in silence by bringing them to see us at SED Optical Eyecare for regular eye tests.
We would recommend first bringing your child to see us for an eye test before they start school, so that their education isn’t compromised, and then bringing them back every year for a regular check-up.
