Children under 16 are at a higher risk of suffering UV damage to their eyes than adults. While we’d likely just reach for our sunglasses on a sunny day, we often forget to do the same for our children.
To make sure their eyes are protected against long-lasting sun damage while they’re playing outside, all our kids’ glasses include singlevision lenses and a UV filter. All glasses in our kids’ £64 and £85 ranges are free with an under16s’ NHS optical voucher. We’ll also give you a free second pair from the £64 or £85 ranges and you can choose to have tinted prescription lenses and UV filter free in this second pair.
You’re not too young to try contact lenses
Contact lenses are perfect for those times when glasses would just get in the way, such as when playing sports, or simply when you want a different look. There’s no minimum age for wearing contact lenses – your parent or guardian and your optician just need to decide it’s OK. And just to make doubly sure contact lenses are the right choice, we offer everyone a free trial.
Kids’ UltraClear SuperClean + UV protection
Our UltraClear SuperClean lenses keep your child’s eyes happy while using digital screens, helps their glasses stay clean and scratch-free, and provides full UV protection. What’s more they’re only £20 per pair.
