Looking after your child’s health is an important element of being a parent, yet when it comes to your child’s eye health many families are seemingly in the dark. Here are some eye-opening points about children’s eyecare that we want all parents to know:
“More than 630,000 youngsters started school in September,” says O&C Head Optometrist, Michael Bradbury, “but how many can see the whiteboard clearly and have the correct vision to learn? Without good eyesight a child’s social and educational development can suffer.”
In many cases, children with visual stress can also be helped with the use of precision tinted spectacles and O&C owner, Jean Oldbury, specialises in this area.
“Children can often benefit from protective no glare lenses,” adds Michael, “to help with important daily tasks and protect from potentially harmful blue light. We offer lightweight and durable lenses, which are also waterproof and won’t scratch as easily.” Sunglasses are available for children along with sports eyewear with wrap frames and prescription inserts. The latest intelligent transition lenses, ,now give maximum benefit for all lighting conditions.
O&C is committed to children’s eye health and we are proud supporters of the Eye Know Eyecare campaign by Transitions.
