Your Family’s Vision for the new term Are you ready?

3 September 2019

Turners in Bridgwater, Somerset is more than your average opticians. It’s where we take pride in looking after the health of your family and loved ones. From cradle to later life, a lot can be detected through an eye examination, and at Turners we have a special paediatric clinic designed to make the whole eye care experience fun and rewarding. For older children starting their new school, it’s a teenage rite of passage to navigate their world, to rebel or belong and ‘look’ the part. Parents have a responsibility to ensure their children can enjoy optimum vision, and with help at hand, at Turners our dispensers and specially trained optometrists, support parents to do just that.

“Good sight enables a child to see the world clearly, learn effectively and develop to the best of their potential”

Arran Taylor, Dispensing Optician

A child may not always tell their teacher if they can’t see the white board or digital screen properly. Who wants to be singled out? Poor vision however, can have a significant effect on children’s ability to learn and on their behaviour and development, yet often goes unrecognised by teachers, parents and by the child themselves.

At Turners, we believe that every child is entitled to a comprehensive eye examination because the neural pathway undergo’s rapid development for a young person. Preventing problems developing in later life, our optometrists at Turners have treated a number of previously undetected ocular issues through early diagnosis. The sooner that vision problems are detected – the better the outcome and quality of life for each child.

Research shows that good vision is important for the development of literacy, numeracy skills and confidence. Turners offer NHS eye examinations for children, offer a stylish selection of frame choice, contact lenses for sports and specialist colorimetry clinic for dyslexia and visual stress.

Say hello to the new Autumn term with confidence and make that appointment.
We’ll take care of the rest.
