Regular eye tests are important for both parents and children and the summer holidays are the perfect time to get up to date with your regular health care appointments.

Alistair Elgar-Williams, director of Specsavers in Folkestone, said: ‘The school holidays can often be a good time for the whole family to catch up with any overdue health checks, including eye tests.

'Eye tests not only monitor your eyesight but act as an overall health check for the eye – and NHS guidelines highlight that they should be carried out every two years.’
