Childrens Sight Tests

An uncorrected visual error in a child can seriously impact on their development so early detection of possible visual anomalies is essential. Parents should be aware that in cases where there is family history of eye problems such as a squint, early sight testing is advised. Various essential tests are performed including checking for “lazy” eyes and/or squints.
