Time & Dates
If your child has a diagnosis:
- ask your orthoptist to make a referral,
- download a referral form from the documents section and make a referral.
If you are concerned that your child is having difficulty, but does not have a diagnosed condition, make an appointment with the GP or optician for a free NHS eye check. This is free for all children under the age of 16 and those young people under the age of 19 who are in full time education. Once a diagnosis is confirmed a referral can be made.
