Eye Examination for Your Family At Turners

6 May 2019


The health of your family’s eyes is what matters to us most at Turners. 

Your child may not tell you if they are struggling with their sight, because children assume that the way they see is normal. Unsurprisingly a lot of people do not tend to get their sight checked until problems develop in later life, by which time their vision may sadly have deteriorated. If someone in your family has childhood eye problems then the chances are, your child’s sight may be at risk. It’s better they see an optometrist sooner.  

Poor eyesight can have a significant effect on children’s ability to learn and on their behaviour, yet often goes unrecognised by teachers, parents and by the children themselves. The sooner vision problems are detected – the better the outcome and quality of life. At Turners we believe a sight test can give every child (and adult!) the ability to see clearly, learn effectively and boost their self confidence. 

Turners Opticians are proud to provide NHS sight tests, including NHS funded emergency care with exacting high standards. The importance of regular eye examinations means that previously undetected problems through early diagnosis can often be treated. With dedicated paediatric and family facilities, the optometrists at Turners are determined to improve children’s knowledge of eye health and to encourage parents to take their children for regular eye checks. 

For most eye conditions, routine or specialist, for adults and young people access to eye care using the latest technology, stylish frame selection and superior lens choice is now all the more affordable with Turners Vision Care Plans. Ask us about this when you book in. 

Turners is situated in a beautiful building in the heart of Bridgwater on Wembdon Road in Somerset. With it’s own free car park facilities, this is rather special opticians and a destination place for your family’s complete vision care needs.
