Good vision is essential to a child’s development as so much of what they learn is taken through their eyes.
Here at Raring2go Bedford, having 2 children that wear glasses we feel it is so important to remind people that we should have our
eyes examined at least every couple years. Most children have excellent sight and do not need to wear glasses. Some children
may have vision screening done at school (between the ages of four and five). However, the earlier any issues are picked up, the better.
If there are problems and they are not picked up at an early age, the child may have permanently reduced vision in one or both eyes. If you have any concerns about your child’s eyes, or if there is a history of squint or lazy eye in the family, Allders suggest that you don’t wait for the vision screening at school, take your child to one of their 11 branches across Bedfordshire for a sight test.
This is free under the NHS for children under 16. Also, your child doesn’t have to be able to read or talk to have a sight test, so don’t leave it, get them checked today!
