Oakham optician asks parents to get their children’s eyes tested early
PARENTS have been urged to get their children’s eyes checked.
As youngsters go back to school, James Alexander of Simmons Optometrists in Burley Road, Oakham, has some advice for parents.
He said: “The importance of good eye health cannot be underestimated. I would urge parents to remember that taking their children to have their eyes checked is just as important as the trip to the dentist, or having their feet measured.
“This should ideally happen around the age of four, or even before, as problems detected this young can be corrected more easily.
“Sight testing at an early age could also prevent wasted opportunities as the child enters school.”
