We've been asked by Specsavers to find out what Mumsnetters' opinions are on all things eyes.

The survey is open to all UK Mumsnetters who have at least one child aged from 2nd birthday to 12 years.

Everyone who completes the survey and adds their details at the end will be entered into a prize draw where one winner will get a £250 John Lewis voucher.

Thanks and good luck.

Does question 14 really need to have radio buttons? DS1 uses both, but I can only select one of the options.

AnnMumsnet (MNHQ) Mon 10-Nov-14 12:30:10

ouryve - good spot - thanks - have added a both option. Will edit your response

All done. I want to know the "correct answers" though now as am slightly panicking that I should book my kids eye tests!

I entered too ! Made me think a bit , and brought keeping an eye on their eyesight into focus a bit !

AnnMumsnet (MNHQ) Mon 10-Nov-14 20:10:45

thanks Daveface - keep a look out on MN for the correct answers!

With DP being blind we are very aware about the need to get tested early in our house smile

I'd enter, but my nearest John Lewis is over 60 miles away.

If I send you a list of shops in my local vicinity can you have a survey that has a usable prize? grin

Completed. Will also be waiting to find out the 'correct' answers. smile

Done, think I've done ok as a specs wearer who was missed until age 10 I've been on my kids case to check they can see. Glad I did DS now 16 had something the optician had never seen and we ended up at eye hospital with him and his funny eye.

Done, Q4 kept resetting to automatic order of 1,2,3,4,5! Everytime I selected a number it just reset to this so I gave up on that question! I am on an iphone.

Done. DS started school this year & wondering do they test eyes at school now?

Done, but I found some of the questions badly worded, especially the laptops/computers one. I also wanted to say that I think getting sight, hearing and teeth checked are equally important, but that wasn't an option. And why are "ears" and "hearing" listed separately?

MrsHathaway Thu 13-Nov-14 19:27:25

I got muddled by the question about whether DC had been checked by an optician - here they are checked in hospital by an ophthalmologist (? I think) at 4. I don't know if that is considered different.

Morrigu Thu 13-Nov-14 19:49:32

I was the same for question 12 MrsHathaway. Ds has never had an eye test at an optician although he wears glasses so ticked no. His are checked regularly at the hospital instead as he was a prem baby so they call him back every year.

Same here. Dd1 and dts all wear glasses but have their eyes tested at the hospital. I'm assuming the surveyors will take the 'no' to opticians and 'yes' to glasses to be a given that they are therefore under the hospital eye department.

Im in scotland where they test kids eyes in nursery/pre school but there was no option for that!

Imnotaslimjim Sat 15-Nov-14 20:00:06

For the question regarding hearing and ears, I'm assuming they meant a visual check of the ears, against and aural check of the hearing. Just a guess though

Why did I have to choose a rating system for importance for eyes ears and teeth etc?

I consider it important to get all 3 checked, and consider getting IQ checked as irrelevant.

Why do I have to put them in order of importance?

steppemum Sun 16-Nov-14 15:56:55

technically, an optician is trained to fit and sell glasses, and an optometrist is the person who checks eye sight. (according to the vocab dd was working on this week!)
