Our children’s eye exams are designed to be fun for your youngster, and stress-free for you

Getting your child high quality eye care should be an easy and positive experience for both you and them. That’s why Johns Opticians are committed to making your child’s eye exam as straightforward and stress-free as possible. Our opticians are highly experienced in treating younger patients, and will ensure they feel relaxed and looked after throughout their appointment.

Each part of the eye exam will be explained to your child in a way that they will understand to ensure they feel as comfortable as possible at every stage. Our opticians will also ensure that you are kept fully informed about your child’s health and eyesight throughout the exam.

“Your child’s eye exam won’t cost you a penny, as eye exams for all children up to the age of sixteen are fully funded by the NHS. This increases to eighteen years old if your son or daughter remains in full-time education.” 

Your child might be nervous about the prospect of wearing glasses following their eye exam. If they do need eyewear, however, their feelings will soon change thanks to our vibrant range of frames made specifically for children.

Johns Opticians is proud to stock an extensive selection for your child to choose from, from distinctive designs to more subtle spectacles. Frames from popular brands such as Marvel Superheroes and Disney Princesses will very soon be available in practice too.

If your child still isn’t keen on wearing glasses, there are also a range of contact lenses available to them. These often prove successful whilst helping your child to develop a sense of responsibility to look after their lenses.
