You may have heard that children cannot have their eyes examined until they can read. This is not the case! If you are concerned about your toddler’s visual development we recommend coming in to see us for your peace of mind.
Sarah is happy to see children of any age and has several different vision tests using pictures and shapes to make your child’s eye exam a relaxed experience.
Sarah and Bev both have children who required spectacles from a very young age. As mothers, they can offer help and support not only as professionals but because they can relate to a parent’s questions or concerns.
Experts in Children's Eyecare
Sarah Dineen Opticians is well known locally as the optometrist to visit for children’s eye tests.
Sarah herself has had a particular interest in children's eye care since she started working at Booth Hall Children's Hospital in Manchester in 1992. She worked there until its closure in 2009.
As well as performing children’s eye examinations at our practice, Sarah performs paediatric eye exams for Tameside and Glossop Foundation Trust in the local clinics.
When Should My Child Have An Eye Test?
Fantastic service. The staff are brilliant with my son and it's always a positive experience when we go. Friendly, professional and welcoming.
At Sarah Dineen Opticians we specialise in eyewear for the very young.
Babies and toddlers have different facial characteristics to adults so scaled-down versions of adult frames are not suitable.
We stock kids glasses such as Tomato and Zoobug. We are constantly looking out for new frames that make the difficult job of putting your baby in spectacles that little bit easier.
It is important that children's spectacles are only dispensed by qualified opticians.
You are welcome to call in at any time to browse our frames. For dedicated advice, we advise phoning ahead to check when Sarah or Andrea are available so they can help you to select the best pair of glasses for your child.
