We would recommend taking your child for their first eye test before they start school, as good vision is important for their early education.

There are many signs to look out for including squinting, headaches and difficulty when reading. However, many disorders have no symptoms, so it is important to have regular examinations.

Cataracts are an age-related condition, resulting in the lens of your eye clouding over. However, many other factors can contribute to this condition, including smoking and ultraviolet light exposure.

Glaucoma may not cause any symptoms to begin with, however, they can develop gradually. They include blurred vision, seeing rainbow-coloured circles around lights or eye pain.
