Your child doesn’t know what’s ‘normal’ for vision – so how can they tell if they have a problem?

Children are only aware of their own experience of the world. Without knowing how their vision should be, children with visual problems tend to accept their eyesight as the norm. This means that you can’t rely on your child to let you know that they are struggling, so it is essential to ensure they attend regular eye examinations.

Undiagnosed visual problems can affect not only your child’s comfort, but also their learning and performance at school.
