Eye Care for Children

Proper eye care starts at a young age.

Children often don’t realise they have vision issues, especially when the symptoms are minimal. Therefore, it’s important for parents to regularly schedule eye exams for their children so they can be aware of potential issues and find the best vision solutions from their opticians.

Children also need more frequent eye exams as they grow. The most common vision problems, myopia and hyperopia, happen when the growth of the eye’s length does not match its focusing power.

While kids lead very different lives from adults, they do share one favourite pastime: digital device use. Many children use digital devices as much as adults do, and their eyes get tired from these long hours of intense focusing. They can benefit from using lenses made specifically for digital device users, which are designed to:

  • Enhanced contrast on digital screens
  • Filters out blue light

Just like adults, kids care about their appearance and they don’t want to compromise their looks. For children that need a strong prescription, Nikon offers thinner, lenses and advanced Nikon coatings with benefits such as:

  • Ability to fit any fashionable frames
  • Anti-reflection coating to improve the look of the lenses and provide clearer and better vision

When it comes to outdoor activities, children want to focus on play time and not worry about their glasses. Nikon offers many advanced features on modern lenses that can help them keep their focus on fun:

  • Helps protect from UV rays

  • Durable material reinforced by scratch-resistant coatings

  • Thin materials that result in lighter lenses

The best eyewear lenses are different depending on your needs.
