Signs That Your Child’s Eyes Need Testing
All children should have an eye test as early as possible – don’t think you have to wait until they can read. We can examine babies even before they can talk! There are some eye conditions that need the earliest possible detection if they are to be corrected, so bring your children in to give you peace of mind. If you notice any of these signs, make it sooner rather than later.
- Screwing their eyes up to see.
- Rubbing their eyes.
- Sitting very close up to the TV
- An eye turning when your child is tired – or if their eyes don’t seem to be working together.
Remember that what they see is normal to them, they won’t know if their vision does need correction. Build the eye test into their normal routine – most love a visit to the Optician!
