MASSIVELY popular kid’s cartoon Ben 10 has invaded opticians across the world with the launch of a great new range of children’s frames – finally your kids have an excuse to want to wear their glasses all the time! From Emporium Eyewear, and available in Wolverhampton exclusively from Lichfield Street Opticians, we are proud to present the Ben 10 Collection.

And to celebrate, we thought we would share with you the experience of young Benjamin Tennyson’s arrival at our practice.

BEN 10: The Arrival

Ben 10 Arrives

Small... Inconspicuous... But no sign of an Omnitrix...

A fairly normal-looking package, although check out all that tape sealing it up? What have they got in there?

Fighting the Ben 10 Packaging!

Who sealed this box? Grandpa Max?

After an epic battle worthy of Ben himself, we finally managed to get into the box to witness the goodies inside.

As parents we do our best to ensure our children stay healthy and safe. But unless there is an obvious problem, we don’t automatically think about maintaining the health of our children’s eyes.
Children will often not recognize if their eyesight is poor and can become frustrated when they feel they are struggling, but not know why.
The timely identification of a child’s vision problems can be crucial because they are more responsive to treatment when these problems are diagnosed early. Appropriate sight testing is vital to ensure that a child has the visual skills he or she needs to perform well in school and to ensure normal vision development that will be with them for all their lives.
Untreated eye conditions such as a squint or lazy eye can lead to other, more serious problems which may result in a permanent reduction in vision. This is why we strongly recommend all children are tested ideally before the age of five.

“1 in 5 children have undetected visual problems until the age of 12” 1

For school-aged children, an eye exam is recommended every two years if no visual correction is required. Children who need spectacles should be examined annually, or every six months as recommended by their optometrist.
At Lichfield Street Opticians we are here to learn all about every family member’s lifestyle and help you to take care of the long term eye health of your children. Getting your children into a routine of eye testing now will help them recognise the importance of takingcare of their eyes throughout their life.
The good news is that all eye tests for children are FREE under the NHS.
Many of our children’s frames are also available free of charge with the NHS voucher scheme – check our FAQ for more information.
