We see a lot of children here at Kite Opticians and have a fabulous selection of frames for children of all ages. We have frames for babies through to teenagers, from the exciting and brightly coloured through to the more rugged! Our ranges are always changing but we can always promise a wonderful selection of frames whatever the age and we are happy to order in different colours if we haven’t got what you require in stock.

It is very important that your child’s eyes are checked throughout childhood. An examination is free under the NHS for those under 16. As well as checking for short or long-sightedness, we can also check for any binocular vision problems such as a squint (strabismus) or lazy eye (amblyopia). Your child’s eyes can be examined at any age and we would certainly recommend a check-up before they start at school.

We stock sunglasses for children offering full UV protection and made to prescription if required. We also offer a range of sports goggles and swimming goggles that can be made to their prescription.

It may be appropriate to look at contact lenses too – look for more information on the contact lens page.
