Eye Tests for Children
We were first introduced to Optical Solutions through my daughter's school where they had an open eye testing afternoon in Primary 1. I have to confess at the time I thought my daughter was far too young to be having her eyes tested! But now realise after speaking to Dr Whittle that the eyes stop growing around 8 years old so the sooner any problems are identified the more chance there is something that can be done. We then went to see Dr Whittle at his surgery, and my daughter was told she would need to wear glasses when she did certain things such as reading and writing. After four years of wearing glasses at her recent check-up we were told her eyes had stabilised which we were delighted about. This is all thanks to having been introduced to Optical Solutions by our school for which we are forever grateful. Dr Whittle and his wife are a great team and we have been looked after extremely well there and would recommend them over High Street opticians.
As a family we’ve been going to Optical Solutions for many years and they are so much more than a high street optician. The very fact that Dr Whittle is an Ophthalmologist and therefore medically trained to look out for any particularly sight, or eye issues, underpins the confidence it is easy to have in the service. I’m happy to say we haven’t ever had any problems detected but the fact that they would be detected, in the young, or old, gives me the reassurance to have my own, my child’s and my parents’ eyes cared for by Optical Solutions. There is no difference in price compared to high street eye tests so why wouldn’t you trust such an important thing – as your sight - to the very best. Nothing is ever too much trouble to the Optical Solution team, whether it’s making an emergency or out of hours appointment, mending glasses, advising on frame shape or colour, or dipping, and redipping, sunglass lenses. I can park without cost, or hassle. If only going to the dentist was so easy!
