1 in 4 Sheffield children have a problem with their sight… but don’t expect them to tell you about it. That’s a scary statistic, isn’t it? Opticians estimate that one in four children have something wrong with their sight… but they don’t realise there’s a problem. It doesn’t occur to them that it’s not normal for things to be blurry.

Hello, we’re Eyefinity. A specialist children’s opticians in Sheffield. If your child hasn’t had a sight test in the last 12 months, book a test online now. And yes we look after mum and dad too.

5 facts about children’s eye tests: Did you know…?

Fact 1: Most parents don’t realise they need to get their children’s sight tested at an early age. A third of parents wrongly believe that a first eye test is only due on starting school – actually, this can be too late

Fact 2: 6 in 10 parents don’t realise children need an eye test at least every 2 years

Fact 3: 85% of parents admit to not knowing much about getting heir children’s eyes tested

Fact 4: 72% of parents are unnaware glasses can potentially help straighten a squint. And 12% of parents said children only need to get their eyes tested if their parents wear glasses. Wrong!

Fact 5: Over half of parents don’t realise that a squint and lazy eye can be detected during an eye test. Early detection gives your child the best chance of great vision in both eyes
