Childrens Eye Examinations

At Banks Opticians we believe it is vital to have a child’s eyes examined before they begin school life. We can effectively examine children from approximately 2 and a half to 3 years of age. We have a range of tests specifically designed for children that make the experience fun and examine particularly for hypermetropia (long-sightedness), squint, amblyopia (lazy eye), three-dimensional vision and colour vision. An undetected visual problem can hinder a child’s learning, concentration and understanding, thus by checking and monitoring their sight and possible spectacle prescription, it gives them the best start to their education.


The eye examination is FREE for children under 16 and up to 18 if in full time education and an optical voucher can also be used against the cost of spectacles if required. We have a large selection of children’s frames, some of which are free of charge and other styles that you can pay towards including some designer collections.
