When it comes to your child’s eyes you want to know that they’re in the very best hands. You want optical professionals with lots of experience, patience and personality. You’ll find all these things at Vraitch Vision. Your little one should have their eyes tested before they go to school. Up until the age of 8 your child’s eyes can be ‘moulded’ which means most minor eye conditions, such as squints and short sightedness, can be rectified. National research has found that children who go to school with undiagnosed eye conditions are likely to become frustrated with reading and writing tasks. This can ultimately lead to a dip in their academic scores, as well as the possibility of a permanent sight problem in the future.
