Children's eyes should be checked regularly, not just at
school but by us. We have full facilities to examine your
child's eyes and will be delighted to see them whatever their
Nowadays children enjoy wearing spectacles and the enormous
range of frame styles and colours available emphasise the fun
aspect of "specs".
Youngsters' spectacles are required to withstand pretty
tough punishment and so robust frames are essential. Modern
styles are strong and flexible and lenses are manufactured in
special plastic and polycarbonate materials for safety.
Fortunately, cost need not stop your youngster from
enjoying a stylish pair of specs.
The NHS pays for eye examinations to all children under 16,
as well as for all those up to 19 and still in full-time
education. When spectacles are required, a voucher is issued
which can be used as payment towards the cost of spectacles.
When breakages occur (as they will!) a voucher can be
issued for the repair or replacement of damaged spectacles.
