Specsavers have been highlighting the importance of children’s eye tests following the Guildford Book Festival, which saw hundreds of children embrace their inner bookworms.

Eye tests at an early age

Store manager, Paul Brindle said: ‘Children can start reading from the age of four, so it’s vital that they have an eye test at an early age to ensure they have clear vision.

‘Guildford has lots of budding young readers and we want to support this by inviting parents to bring in their child to have an eye test, so they can continue reading with ease. We recommend children having their first eye test at around three to four years-old so any discrepancies in their sight can be identified early on.’

Wide range of kids’ specs

Specsavers in Guildford offer a wide range of specs for children, including a Disney range, and all under-16s get a free NHS eye test. All glasses in Specsavers’ kids’ £64 and teens’ £85 ranges are free with under-16s’ NHS funding. Specs wearers can also choose a second pair from the £64 or £85 range, free.
