The summer holidays are finally upon us, and before you do anything else, think about taking your kids to Specsavers Orpington for an eye test.

Children’s eye tests are different from those for adults. The team use specially designed charts that allow children to recognise shapes or pictures, or even to match letters, rather than the traditional charts that you may be familiar with.

A word from the store director

Store director Wai Leung, said: ‘We recommend that children have an eye test every two years from the age of three.

‘The test is free with their NHS optical voucher, and if they need glasses the voucher will help with the cost of these too. So why not book a test online today.’
