Children's eye testing

Good eyesight is the key to every child’s future

Without good vision children can suffer from enormous setbacks to their learning and development. Many children and parents do not realise that there is an underlying visual problem until they have been examined.

Lunettes Opticians in Lincolnshire can examine children from any age with a range of tests using modern equipment. Ideally children should be screened to rule out eye conditions before their first birthday and have further checks at 18months and 3years. After this, an annual eye examination is recommended but there are circumstances where we may need to carry out examinations more frequently.

Warning signs of visual problems:

  • Excessive blinking
  • Sore/ red eyes
  • Headaches
  • Squinting
  • Sitting close to the TV or holding books very close
  • Poor performance at school

Lunettes Opticians offer a wide range of funky modern frames for children. We stock many leading brands including Ray Ban, Converse and ted Baker. We also have a range of quality styles which are supplied at no charge under the NHS.

We supply standard plastic lenses FREE with the NHS voucher although these can be upgraded to tougher, thinner, light reactive or specially coated lenses for an extra charge. We also provide sports specific spectacles and prescription sunglasses for children. We can advise on the most suitable lens options when the glasses are dispensed.
