Kids Eye Tests in Ashton on Ribble

Kids eye tests in Ashton on Ribble are offered by The Spectacle Factory. Most eye problems in children can be corrected if they are seen to early enough. Children need routine eye check-ups done from as early as their first year. Around age 3½, kids should undergo eye health screenings and tests that measure sharpness of vision, called visual acuity tests. Children hardly ever complain about their vision, but common indicators of poor vision include constantly rubbing their eyes, squinting when looking at a book or sitting too close to the TV.

In Ashton on Ribble, kids eye tests should be done at least every two years after they have had their vision checked. A physical examination of the eyes and vision screenings using eye chart tests, pictures, and letters, which tests the child’s visual acuity, or ability to see form and detail of objects are done for children between the ages of 3 and 5. Eye tests for kids are important as any problems observed can be correctly treated as needed.
