Can anyone tell me how often I should get my DD's eyes tested. They are 5 & 8 and last had them done about a year ago. They have no problems that I am aware of and dont wear glasses. Many thanks.

It's recommended that they are tested every 2 years (yearly if any problems or family history of eye problems).

Eye tests are free for children.

Thanks Sidge. My dad has glaucoma and has had cataracts so maybe will go for the yearly option.
