Children’s Eye Examinations

Let's go!

Early sight correction can avoid significant learning and reading difficulty.

It is important to have your child’s eyes tested regularly to allow for successful treatment of any conditions such as a squint, hereditary cataract or long or short sightedness.

We recommend a first eye test in your child’s pre-school year, although our skilled staff can test children earlier than this if you have concerns, including new-born babies.

When you visit us, you can expect our experienced staff to make a comprehensive assessment quickly and with a friendly manner. The appointment will take only 5-10 minutes for younger children and they do not need to be able to read or even speak. Using a handheld torch, we will shine lights across your child’s eyes, covering eyes alternately to measure prescription and check alignment.

Introduce us to your family today by calling our team to book a children’s eye examination at your nearest branch.

I would like to thank Spectacular Opticians for their professional approach and the ongoing support that they have given me over the last few years. I was having constant problems with my eye sight, until I received a very thorough sight test from one of their Optometrists, and now I can live and work in extreme comfort.


Mrs Daphne Gilby, Chatteris

Spectacular Opticians, thank you for the professional help and support received by my team this week. Our glasses are lovely and we are very pleased with the service, efficiency and price.


Odette and all at Brides by Solo, Newmarket

The young lady attending to me was exceptional with the time and care she took over my difficulty. I just wanted to say a special thank you for the hour you spent looking after me.


Mr Michael Stone

A huge thank you to your Downham Market branch who fitted me in at very short notice today when I presented with a painful eye. Both Tesco and Specsavers refused to see me until next week once they had established I wasn’t after a ‘standard’ eye test, despite me clearly being in pain. The receptionist at Downham couldn’t have been more helpful, and the optician gave up part of his lunch break to see me. That’s what I call excellent customer service, well done.


Mrs Pauline Finnerty, Downham Market
