Hi,

You know how we feel about shoes! You can never have too many pairs … and you wouldn’t want to be wearing the same pair every time you went out. Your glasses are part of your outfit everyday aswell!

Lots of shoes but only one pair of glasses!

The average women now has 7 pairs of shoes or more … (for me that figure should definitely be higher!).  Wearing the right glasses for every occasion means you’ll always project the right image.  Here at Lichfield Street Opticians we can choose frames that will be suitable for all aspects of your lifestyle.

If in the past you have had lenses that have looked thick and unattractive in your frame, we have a fantastic range of ultra thin lenses suitable for all prescriptions.  They will all be supplied with an anti glare coating, that stop any reflections you would normally see on a standard uncoated lens.

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.
