The NHS recommends vision screening at age 4 and 5 years. It is to help identify children with reduced vision in one or both eyes. The aim is to detect any problems early so that a child can receive effective treatment. Vision continues to develop from birth to around 8 years of age. Children rarely complain of having poor vision and it can easily go unnoticed, especially if it only affects one eye. This is why the NHS recommends vision screening.
