Queensway focus on childrens' vision this half term

Specsavers in Queensway is raising awareness of the consequences of neglecting children’s eye health and the importance of regular eye examinations from the age of three.

A word from the director

Seema Patel, Specsavers Queensway store director says: ‘Half term is upon us and we are urging all parents to make use of this time and book their children in for a sight test.

It's important for eye problems to be identified as early as possible, because they can have a significant impact on a child's development and education.

8 is too late

Eye problems are often much easier to treat if detected while a child's vision is still developing (usually up to about seven or eight years of age). An early diagnosis will help to ensure that you and your child have access to any special support services you may need.’
