OUR PROFESSIONAL TEAM ARE EXPERIENCED IN CARING FOR YOUNG EYES
WHY ARE KIDS EYE TESTS SO IMPORTANT?
The importance of regular eye examinations in childhood cannot be emphasised enough.
A child’s eyesight is their most important tool for learning and has a major impact on their personal development. About 80% of a child’s learning is visual, yet many children do not see well enough to reach their full potential.
It is recommended that children have an eye examination by the age of three, or earlier if you think that there may be a problem or if there is a family history of vision problems including squints.
A child’s vision continues to develop until the age of eight, and without early treatment vision defects can become permanent disabilities.
A child may not tell you if they have a problem. Children assume that the way they see is normal as they have never known any different. However, early and regular eye examinations will rule out vision defects.
At Aidan Walsh Opticians, we will carry out a fun, child-friendly eye exam to ensure that your child’s vision is thoroughly checked and treatment immediately given where necessary.
If your child needs to wear glasses, you are in the right place! Our range of children’s glasses is one of the best in the country.
With many brands and sizes to fit all the little faces out there, Aidan Walsh Opticians is the only place to come to get long-lasting, durable children’s glasses that don’t compromise style for quality.
Some spectacles are available free of charge with vouchers, and we have a large range of children's frames starting at €20. All our frames carry guarantees.
We carry specialised frames for children with special needs, and we welcome the opportunity to ensure that your child achieves their full visual potential.
