Childrens Sight test

Large & Large Opticians provide sight tests for all ages. Children under the age of 16 are entitled to a free test on the National Health Service.


The sooner your child learns a habit, the more likely they are to carry that practice on as they grow. Looking after their eyes is no exception! Our visual assessments for children test:

  • Visual acuity
  • Muscle balance
  • Colour perception
  • Stereoscopic acuity, which is what helps us to detect a lazy eye


  • Our optometrist will make the sight test a fun experience for your child, and they will only be seen by qualified, knowledgeable staff throughout their visit. We also specialise in fitting glasses for infants and have close links with the hospital eye service. 
  • NHS eye tests are free for children under 16 and we offer a great range of stylish frames for your child to choose from, so the experience can be an enjoyable one for both them and you!

If your child is under 16 or is aged 16-18 in full-time education, they are entitled to a free eye test under NHS guidance, so there’s never been a better time to book their appointment! Children’s eye tests take around 30 minutes, but the benefits of accurate sight correction could be with them for life.

We are here to help you make the right choice
