Children’s consultations may be different
Children’s eye tests are different from those for adults. We use specially designed charts that allow children to recognise shapes or pictures rather than the traditional charts that you may be familiar with. This means that we can test children’s eyes even if they are unable to read.
In the early years, vision helps them find out about the world around them. Later, as they go through school, their eyesight lets them learn and discover – in fact, about 80% of what is taught in schools is presented visually. Being able to see clearly is therefore incredibly important in your child’s overall development.
At Fresh Vision by Davey and Associates we can detect and manage a variety of conditions in children including turned eyes, lazy eyes and reading and focusing difficulties.
