Did you know...

  • One in five school children has an undetected eye problem.
  • Much of a child's learning occurs visually.
  • Without treatment vision defects such as lazy eyes can become permanent disabilities.
  • Children receive up to 3 times more sun exposure than adults. UV light is as dangerous for the eyes as it is to the skin, increasing eye pathologies later in life.
  • Regular eye exams are crucial for your child's healthcare & personal development.
  • Specialist eye exams can help with children with learning difficulties & visual stress (such as in Dyslexia, Dyspraxia ADHD).


Here at Grant & Glass we recommend that your children have their first eye examinations at around three years old. As mentioned above, some learning difficulties can be caused by uncorrected visual problems, so the earlier they're detected, the better!

Of course, if you feel cause for concern before this age, please feel free to come in and talk to us.

The U-12's

Our eyes can change a great deal as we grow and that's why we recommend that children of all ages get a regular check up.

At Grant and Glass we know how important this is, having observed children with visual problems that have gone undetected. Eye defects can have a profound affect on your child's learning.

There is no cost to parents for this service, as it is funded by the NHS. In certain cases if a child is showing no abnormalities in their eyes, we will suggest reducing the frequency of their eye examinations to once yearly.
