We pride ourselves on providing comprehensive care for young eyes.

At Airedale Opticians we treat children’s eye checks with the same importance as adult eye examinations.

  • Extended testing times – allowing extra time to thoroughly check childrens eye health and where appropriate provide a long term management plan
  • Specialist Myopia Control Clinic (Short-sighted) – To reduce the progression of short-sight with Ortho K, Contact Lenses or the latest spectacle lenses.
  • Flexible format – we adjust the testing for the age and development of the child, making them comfortable and ensuring the best results.
  • No minimum age – If you have concerns we can test children from any age. Using picture charts or other techniques.
  • We have experience with seeing children with learning and developmental disabilities including non-verbal conditions.
  • Supplementary Tests -Coloured Overlay Assessments including Visual Stress Testing (Myers-Irlen syndrome).
