Here at Specsavers in Leatherhead, we have a friendly team onhand to help with children's eye health needs. The other bit of good news is that our frame selection is fantastic and kids simply love the styles we have available.
If you child is about to embark of wearing frames for the first time, we promise you will not be disappointed by our collection.
The design features for children here at Leatherhead
All of the children's frames in store have been designed with their needs in mind. Says Amit Patel, optometrist at Leatherhead: 'Rather than simply shrink down an adult style, you will find that our frames take into account many considerations such as a child's head shape and the frames are adaptable as a child grows.
Our lenses are pretty hard wearing too! Frames that come with single vision lenses have a scratch-resistant treatment - I think we all know they will probably get dropped from time to time!
Also, if you children needs a tinted prescription and UV filter with their lenses, you will be pleased to hear this is free with a second pair under our scheme (all glasses in the £64 and £85 ranges are free with an under-16s NHS voucher and a second pair comes free too).'
Brilliant brands at our store
Our friendly team of advisors will be able to help your child pick out the perfect style for them here at Leatherhead. Amit advises: 'We have recently welcomed Crayola and My Little Pony ranges at the store.
These joins well-loved brands such as Star Wars, Emoji, The Gruffalo, JCB Kids, Disney's Winnie the Pooh and Finding Dory and Marvel.'
Make sure your child has their two-year check up
Amit is also keen to stress the importance for regular sight tests. He says: 'Nearly 80% of a child's learning is done visually by the age of 12, so good vision will assist with their development. We can pick up other issues beyond vision during a test, such as squint or a lazy eye.
We recommend children come to us from the age of 3 upwards and they will be seen by our friendly team who will put your child at ease throughout the examination.'
