Children's Eyecare


Looking After Young Eyes

Assessment of children can reveal problems at a young age many of which respond well to early treatment such as spectacles, patching or referral for further assessment. We welcome children from 2 and half years old and upwards. It is vital that your child’s vision is looked after as much of a child’s learning is visual. Weak vision needs to be corrected early in life otherwise a child may be left with a permanent lazy eye.

Spectacle Frames

Marian Carton Opticians have a wide range of children’s frames. Getting the right fit of your child’s glasses is essential to ensure they are well fitting and comfortable. It is important that the frame sits on the child’s nose and that they are not able to look over the top of the frame.

Spectacle Lenses

We can advise if standard lenses will be suitable for your child’s glasses. We can advise on options to make lenses thinner if required.

Sports Vision

Many children actively participate in sport. For this reason we supply prescription goggles for swimming, football and soccer.

Contact Lenses

Daily Disposable contact lenses are now available in almost every prescription and we teach children how to insert and remove them. This is a great way to start wearing contact lenses and this works well for under hurling helmet.
