Children’s Eyecare

Children’s Eye Exams are FREE on the NHS.

VISION FOR THE KIDS

It is not necessary for a child to be able to read or even speak in order for our eye professionals to check if glasses are required to improve their vision.

Testing the Eyes of a Child

Loveday Opticians offers child-friendly tests that will tell us – and you – everything we need to know about your child’s eye health. Children don’t have to be able to read to have an eye test.
We’ll ask you about family history and check your child’s sight against expected levels of development for their age. We’ll assess their vision and see if it needs correcting, then discuss the results clearly with you.
Children qualify for an NHS voucher and we have a great range of kids glasses ranging from coloured metals to funky plastics, cost covered by your NHS Voucher, meaning complete pairs of glasses and repairs at no charge.

Child-friendly Eye Care

Once they’ve had their first eye exam, your child will soon get into the habit of having their eyes checked regularly. We like to see children at least every year to ensure we and you are looking after their precious sight and to help you with any questions you have about your child’s vision.

Come in with your child to see us anytime. Older children may be interested in contact lenses – click here for more information.

FREE GLASSES OFFER

We are determined to give our local community in Harlow the best eye care support possible.
We offer free nhs eye tests for under 16’s as well as free glasses in our £64 kids range and £89 teens range.

These glasses also now come with a second pair at half price from the same price range!

OUR PATIENTS SAY

I recently bought some new glasses at Specsavers but they hadn't adjusted them correctly. As I live nearby, I went into Loveday's to ask them whether they would adjust the glasses for me as a favour. I spoke to Mitchell, who said that he would be happy to help if it was at my own risk. Although it was tricky, he adjusted them perfectly. Not only am I extremely grateful to both him and Loveday's but I was so impressed that I will be taking my custom to them in future! They are all very friendly and helpful, especially Mitchell, to whom I am very grateful.

I have visited Loveday Opticians twice now to have my eyes checked. After having major surgery on both eyes, I was looking for an Opticians who I felt confident with to take cares of my fragile eyes.I have found the service exceptional. They were thorough, listened to what surgery I had had then then went through all of the tests and checks. The glasses service was fast and efficient, with a quick fitting and their technician getting the glasses right first time.A return visit and the level of service was still as good and although my prescription hadn't changed, I purchased a new pair of glasses and received replacement lenses as part of a deal. There was no pressure to buy the glasses, which is a welcome change from other opticians who try and sell you multiple pairs of glasses.

I had my ear wax removed at Loveday Opticians and the service was very professional and friendly. Time was taken to explain the process and to listen to any concerns. It took more than one visit due to my narrow ear canals, but I paid only once for this service. My hearing is so much better now. The reception staff and opticians obviously care about their work and are so friendly and polite. Highly recommended.

Been going to Lovedays for many many years. Tried other shops but due to my complex prescription they are the only shop I have found that have the expertise to handle things for me. Would never dream of going else where.

Nothing but praise for these guys. Straight away they were sympathetic and understanding towards my struggle wearing a face covering. The lady who done my eye test was friendly and knowledgeable. She sorted me out with a free trial of contact lenses and a sample of eye drops for my dry eye problem. Even had a chat with the lovely lady on reception and another customer about football. Came away very happy with the whole experience and would definitely recommend
