Children's EYE CARE

Eye care is as important for children as it is for adults. We offer NHS care for children and early intervention can help to limit the impact problems with your child's eyesight may have on their everyday life


A child’s eyes are more vulnerable than an adult’s, because they continue to develop through their formative years. We can check for:

  • Indications of poor vision performance 
  • Symptoms of lazy eye syndrome and other developmental issues
  • Normal muscle development and function


  • Our optometrist is experienced in working with children, and we would be delighted if you would like to accompany your child throughout their eye test. 
  • There are a range of measurements and tests that are aimed specifically at children, so the experience is absolutely painless and can even be fun! 
  • We have a range of spectacles and contact lenses that are made specifically for children, so your child can be confident that they look great, and you can be sure that their glasses are durable enough to stand up to your child’s active lifestyle!

We offer free eye tests on the NHS for children under the age of 16 and you might be entitlted to free glasses too, so visit Shiva Opticians and ask our staff about children’s eye care today.

We are here to help you make the right choice
