Back to school eye examination

Posted on 16th August 2018

We hope the start of the new term is going well for all who went back this week. Did you manage to get your child’s eyes examined over the holidays? Children should have their eyes examined by an optometrist every two years from pre-school.

Signs there is an issue

Most children assume that the way they see is normal so you cannot rely on them to tell you if there is a problem.  Here are some signs you can look out for that may suggest they have an issue with their vision:

  • headaches and sore eyes
  • difficulty concentrating
  • using fingers to track text or losing their place when reading
  • having issues with coordination for example when playing ball games
  • squinting or closing one eye when reading or watching television
  • showing sensitivity to light or the glare from a screen.

Contact lenses for children

If your child already wears glasses, they may be interested in looking at options wearing contact lenses. We have a huge range of options for children as young as seven. From our Myopia Management lenses are actually proven to slow the progression of short-sightedness in children, to our Ortho-K lenses which are worn overnight, leaving them free from lenses by day. Please get in touch if you would like to discuss your child’s suitability for contact lenses. 

At Cameron Optometry we offer the most comprehensive (and fun!) eye examination available and it’s all free-of-charge. Book in with an award-winning optometrist today. You can book online, call 0131 225 2235 or fill in this form and we’ll get back to you to arrange an appointment.

I'm happy to receive information regarding all Cameron Optometry services and offers via email.
