'A B See' - A sight test helps your child achieve their best

A B See is a new campaign launched by the Association of Optometrists (AOP) which aims to help children reach their full potential through regular sight testing.

This follows recent research by the AOP which found that three quarters of optometrists had seen a child, in the past year, with a condition that could have been treated more successfully had it been identified earlier. Inconsistency and lack of understanding of school vision screening was also a reoccurring theme.

Sight tests are free for children aged 16 and under, and for those aged 16 to 18 who are in full time education. For more information about the 'A B See' campaign, including advice on children's eye health, common myths about children's vision and other resources, click here.

The BBC News also reported on the campaign, and included some personal stories.
