Specialised Eye Testing and Care for Children with Learning Difficulties

Home Direct Eyecare takes pride in being a provider of eye tests specifically designed for children with Special Educational Needs and Difficulties (SEND). The service aims to create a comfortable and enjoyable experience for children who may find traditional optometry services challenging.

One of the primary advantages of Home Direct Eyecare for children with SEND is the convenience of being tested at home. This eliminates the need for parents or guardians to take their child to a high street opticians, which can be an overwhelming experience for children with learning difficulties. Instead, the optometrist visits the child in the comfort of their own home, allowing them to feel more relaxed and at ease during the examination.

 Home Direct Eyecare’s opticians are the designated Eye Care Team for Pendle Community High School and Ridgewood Community High School in Lancashire, showcasing their expertise in working with children with SEND. The optometrists have experience in dealing with a wide range of conditions such as autism, ADHD, dyslexia, and cerebral palsy, among others.

To ensure an enjoyable experience, Home Direct Eyecare has specially designed equipment that is both fun and engaging for children. The wide array of equipment enables the optometrist to measure vision for children with various conditions. Age-appropriate equipment and techniques are used to ensure the child feels comfortable throughout the examination.

If the child requires glasses, Home Direct Eyecare offers specialised frames that are customisable and can be finely adjusted to ensure the best fit. The optometrist works with the child and their parents or guardians to select the most suitable frame that fits the child’s face and matches their style and preferences.

Home Direct Eyecare provides a valuable service for children with SEND, offering convenience, expertise, and a fun and engaging experience. By bringing eye care to the child’s home, the service helps ensure that children receive the necessary eye care and vision correction they need to succeed in their education and daily lives.
