KIDS EYETEST – ARE FREE!!!!
Here at Alderley Eyecare we pride ourselves on our Children’s Testing. Our test is designed to be a fun experience in a relaxing atmosphere. We advise that children should have their first eye examination at around three years old. Learning difficulties can sometimes be caused by uncorrected vision problems, so the earlier they can be detected, the better the chance of correcting them.
It is imperative to make sure your children have regular sight tests as part of their development. Very often sight deficiencies can go undetected in young children as parents and teachers can be unaware.Children under the age of 16 (or under 19 if in full-time education) are entitled to free eye tests on the NHS. To find out who else is eligible to a test for free visit - free eye tests.
Children will have vision screening as part of their routine development checks, but are not as thorough as a full eye examination by a qualified optometrist.
It is important for children to have an eye examination before starting school. The optometrist needs to determine if a child’s vision system is adequately prepared to handle reading, writing and other close work. Toddlers use their eyes mostly looking at distance, however, school children require the eyes to focus on very close, small work for many hours a day. This can cause vision problems to arise but as children believe that what they see is ‘normal’and believe everyone see’s as they do” & cannot tell if a child’s eyes are healthy, “ or focusing comfortably when used together for long periods of time”.
The eye chart test, performed by the school vision screening, cannot tell if a child’s eyes are healthy, focus comfortably, and are used together for a long periods of time. It can therefore be no substitute for a proper examination by your family optometrist.
In order to minimize the chance of an eye or sight defect being carried into adulthood a regular sight test is imperative.
Inside the test room
Remember that sight tests don’t hurt! We try to make the examination as much fun as we can for your child and they don’t have to be able to read, as we can use pictures and small objects.
Our children's glasses are built to last!
Children have a busy active life, with lots of rough and tumbles. For this reason, we have children's glasses that are built with this in mind, with something for everyone. They are specifically designed to fit small faces and will be fitted and adjusted to ensure they are comfortable to wear. They'll also be given a free case in which to keep them when not being worn, and a lens cleaning cloth.
Children spend more time outside and, like skin, their eyes need protection from UV rays with the use of sunglasses. Always protect your child's sight in the sun. There is increasing evidence to suggest that over-exposure to the sun's ultraviolet rays (UV) can contribute to the development of cataracts, age-related macular degeneration and ocular meanoma (eye cancer). On average, people receive 50% of their lifetime sun exposure before they are 18 years old. We have some great sunglasses for babies and young children so that you can be sure that there eyes are as well protected as yours.
At Alderley Eyecare we use ophthalmic lenses made by CARL ZEISS a leading German lens manufacturer. These lenses are manufactured using technologically advanced lens materials and are the result of the latest research and development in the field of optics. In our specialist Glazing Laboratory, we stock an extensive range of single-vision prescription lenses, including ultra-thin lenses for short sighted and long sighted spectacles prescriptions. All of our lenses have a scratch resistant coating and special anti reflection coating.
After years of research and many innovations, the single-vision lenses available today offer superior quality and design and provide superb comfort for the user. These lenses can be up to 50% thinner and 45% lighter than standard plastic lenses. Their ultra-thin profile improves the design and the appearance of your spectacles. Aspheric and double aspheric lens technology provide clearer vision over the entire surface of the lens, giving the wearer a larger distortion-free field of vision. At Alderley Eyecare we use the best, custom-made designs for our single aspheric and double aspheric lenses.
Single vision lenses are used to correct vision for either far or near distance. Around the age of forty, many people develop presbyopia. Presbyopia is a condition in which the lens of the eye loses its ability to focus, making it difficult to see objects up close. Progressive, or varifocal lenses provide excellent near, intermediate and far vision, all in one lens, so the wearer does not need to take their spectacles off and on. Because they are made according to your specific requirements, our SEIKO progressive lenses guarantee comfortable vision for any activity, including leisure and sports.
Curved & Sport - Alderley eyecare & New Zeiss Sport Tech
Some spectacles and sunglasses frames have a higher base curve or they are made in the wrap-around style, which can make it difficult to fit them with standard type lenses. Curving the lens to accommodate the shape of the frame can result in distorted vision at the edges of the lens. Here, at Alderley Eyecare, we use the latest generation of curved ophthalmic lenses, like the new SEIKO SPORTSTECH lenses, as a solution to the problem. These lenses enable the wearer to see clearly right up to the edges of the lenses and create a clear vision over the entire lens, even when it is fitted into a highly curved, wrap-around style frame. These spectacles and sunglasses lenses are extremely thin, lightweight and impact resistant and they provide protection from wind, dust and UV light. They are available in a variety of coloured tints and polarized filters. At the moment, these lenses are not available for all spectacles prescriptions and we will advise you on their suitability.
Alderley Eyecare Glazing Laboratory
We provide the highest quality of service to all our clients. Our technicians specialise in technically demanding tasks that require meticulous attention to detail and the highest level of expertise.

In our glazing laboratory, we use the latest, sophisticated Nidek glazing equipment to cut lenses to fit your spectacles or sunglasses.We have a large range of single-vision ZEISS ophthalmic lenses, including ultra-thin lenses for higher spectacles prescription. This enables us to produce, upon request, and very often on the same day, a ready-to-wear pair of spectacles with your prescription. This service is available Monday to Friday 10-4pm.
These days people who need vision correction don’t want the same correction for all their activities. You don’t have one pair of shoes for the office, the bedroom, the walk in the country, the beach and the tennis court do you?
So although spectacles may be great for certain aspects, many people of all ages prefer the freedom of contact lenses especially for more dynamic activities. They provide a wider field of vision without the disadvantages of spectacle lenses splattered with raindrops or misting up when you get hot. Many people have found that contact lenses fit their lifestyle perfectly.
Whether you want lenses for all-day, everyday, or just for occasional use for sport or that special occasion we have the lenses to fit your needs. We frequently successfully fit lenses to people who have been told by other opticians that they are unsuitable for contact lenses.
Lenses these days are available in high-performance designs and materials so that they are healthier and more comfortable than ever before.
Whether you have tried lenses before and given up or want to try them for the first time, our skilled optometrists will find the lens that is right for you.
Because we are an independent practice we have the freedom to choose contact lenses from any supplier.
Our first-choice for many is the Acuvue range of lenses from Johnson & Johnson VisionCare, and our practice is an Acuvue Centre of Excellence.
We also supply lenses from all the mainstream manufacturers: CibaVision, Coopervision and Sauflon and Bausch&Lomb.
We also specialise in RGP's (Ridged Gas Permeable) lenses.
