On a mission to curb myopia in children.

Eye Care We Care

Children's Future. Children's Vision.

What is the Eye Care We Care Scheme?

This scheme has been created specifically for key stage 2 children and aims to partner teachers and Eye Care Professionals together to improve knowledge of eye health in an innovative and fun way for children.

Are you confident that children are seeing as they should?

Most learning typically takes place through our eyes and it is alarming to learn that schools currently do not have any scheme in place which focuses on the importance of healthy eyesight and overall eye health.

 

Vision screening doesn’t take place in schools as it once did, and teachers are less aware of what to look out for in their classrooms. What’s more is most parents don’t even realise their children can have their eyes tested from a very early age to diagnose any issues or potential issues that may occur.

Raising awareness of eye health and myopia management.

Improving children’s vision.

​An estimated 5 billion people, or half of the global population, could be affected by shortsightedness by 2050.1

Research shows that more time spent on near-work activities is associated with a greater likelihood of myopia.2
