One Million School Children with Vision Problems in the UK

Updated: Mar 27, 2022

Did you know there are an estimated one million children with an undiagnosed vision problem?

Good eyesight is crucial in making sure a child develops to their full potential both at school and socially.

It’s very important to look after your children’s eyes – the eye is still developing throughout early childhood so if problems are treated early, it can make a lasting difference.

Yet research shows that around 20% of school-aged children have an undiagnosed vision problem.

Many of these children (and their parents) are unaware that they have a vision problem.

It’s never too early to have a thorough eye examination, visiting an optometrist will help to spot and manage vision problems that may affect your child's development.

At I-Care Optometry we know the importance of a regular, comprehensive examination which is why our hospital trained Optometrists will conduct a thorough examination of your children’s visual system and ensure that they receive the correct care.

We also offer a number of specialist services at our clinics including Myopia Management and Vision Therapy.

So why not contact us today to arrange to have your children’s vision thoroughly checked by one of our experienced Optometrists?
