Like everything these days you have a few choices and its no different with a hearing test for children who can be a challenge when you then need to take them to a doctors or for something complex like an eye test. Technology is constantly evolving to offer eye tests for children but at this point children’s eye tests can only offered with your local optician for under 16 year olds.

Your local opticians are extremely well trained to be able to handle eye tests for children and you normally have a rapport with your local optician if your children have been diagnosed with a sight issue from as little as 5 years of age.

If you’re children ( or young adults as they like to be referred) are 16 years of age then we can offer an eye check online which is simple and can be done anytime and almost anywhere they like which can then be followed up at your local optician.

'When I turned 40 last year I started to notice I was struggling seeing things closeup so I knew I needed to atleast get my eyes tested. I am always pressed for time all the time so I found my closest opticians who were great, well priced and service was second to none. Thanks'

'I thought this was a gimmick but its actually pretty impressive and not something i would normally do but I tried it and then followed up with an eye test at my opticians'

'Good to do a test online which made me realise I really needed to visit my optician. I am new to Edinburgh but with your postcode search I managed to find a local optician who was fantastic ! '
