Your child is sure to find glasses that they love amongst our extensive frames selection.

At Bottomley Opticians, we understand that going for an eye exam isn’t likely to be at the top of your son or daughter’s list of favourite things to do. If they’re particularly young, maybe they’re worried about what will need to be done to their eyes during the exam, and whether it will be uncomfortable or even painful.

You can rest assured that our experienced team of optometrists have over forty years of eye care experience between them. They have looked after the eyes of countless children throughout their careers, and know how to put anxious young minds at ease. Every part of the eye exam is painless and non-intrusive – we can even demonstrate what needs to be done on you first to show your child there’s nothing to worry about.

If your child does need corrective lenses, it’s likely that they will be apprehensive about how wearing glasses might affect their appearance. With our extensive range of frames made especially for children, however, the trickiest part is likely to be narrowing the choice down to their absolute favourite!

For younger patients there are lots of colourful and distinctive glasses, whilst older children and teenagers looking for something more subtle and fashionable will also find plenty to choose from. You will find frames from fashionable brands such as Basebox and Rockstar, and many more. Best of all, eye exams for children under 16 (or under 19 and in full-time education) are fully funded by the NHS.
