Back to School is Approaching...make sure to book that Eye Test!

Hope that everyone has had a great Christmas!
Only two weeks until our kids head back to school. Remember to make sure that they have had their comprehensive eye exam before then. Eye exams for children are extremely important, as early identification of a child's vision problem can be crucial and children often are more responsive to treatment when problems are diagnosed early.
For school-aged children it is recommended that they should have an eye exam every two years or as directed by their Optometrist.

Happy World Sight Day 2017!

 

Our Children’s Vision is a call to action – to come together to ensure that effective, inclusive, sustainable eye health initiatives are available to children around the world, regardless of their economic status or geographical location.

Optometry Giving Sight is proud to be a global partner in Our Children’s Vision. We believe that Our Children’s Vision will ensure every child, everywhere has access to the eye care they need. The best part is you can help.

What does a child see for their future? Moonwalks, sold out stadiums, the presidency? The most striking part of any child’s dream is their ambition. But the key to all those ambitions is a good education, and getting a good education is difficult without good eyesight.

Every seven year old, when going to school, should take along a certificate from their optometrist saying, ‘I’ve had my eyes examined, I’m ok I can see.

Children should not be limited by a preventable or treatable vision impairment.

Our initial target is to provide services to 50 million children by 2020. It is an achievable goal and, by supporting the development of local people and utilising their expertise, we will reach it. We can achieve sustainability and efficiency by operating inside established systems with people who know and understand current processes.

Research is vital to driving awareness and achieving change. We are committed to understanding and communicating the level of need for eye care services and the impact that the increasing prevalence of myopia is having on our children. The knowledge gained will demonstrate the missing link in complete health provision for children.
