Children’s eyecare

At Scrivens Opticians, we put your child’s needs first in everything we do. Whether that’s helping them to see clearly, finding the frames they love or assessing and regularly monitoring their eye health. Through friendly, professional help and advice, and a wide choice of frames and contact lenses, we can help your child get the most out of growing up.

Free tailored eye examinations

As children grow, their eyes change. This is why it’s important to have your child’s eyesight checked regularly. At Scrivens, we provide free NHS eye examinations for children under 16 (and under 19 if they’re in full-time education). There’s real peace of mind in knowing our expert Optometrists are performing regular, tailored assessments of your child’s vision and the overall health of their eyes.

Frames they’ll love

Children can be very sensitive about how they look. This can make finding the glasses they like a stressful experience for them – and for you! At Scrivens Opticians you’ll find fun, fashionable and affordable frames, including popular designer brands and a selection of FREE glasses. Our goal is to take the stress out of finding that perfect pair of glasses. And our children’s frames are tough enough to withstand even the most adventurous playtime. So your child can count on getting the look they want, and you can bank on peace of mind.

Second pair of glasses for just £15

Whether it’s to give your child a different look, or simply to take care of that ‘just in case’ feeling we all have when our children get new things, having a second pair of glasses makes a lot of sense. So we make it easier. For just £15, you can get a complete second pair (frames and lenses). At Scrivens, reassurance comes at a very reasonable price.

15% OFF contact lenses

If your child is active and sporty, glasses can put a limit on their freedom. Contact lenses are designed with adventure in mind, giving children the extra confidence they need to be able to to give their all to the activities they love. We also provide specific contact lenses to help manage childhood short-sightedness.

We’re here to help you make the right choice for your child – and make it as easy as can be. With our free ‘contact lens trial’ service, your child can try out contact lenses to see how they feel. Plus, sign-up to Lensplan, our hassle-free direct debit, delivery service, and you’ll not only have the lenses delivered to your door, you’ll be saving 15%!
