Diana Kelly, store director of Specsavers in Linlithgow said: “Good eyesight is fundamental when children are learning, so even a minor problem with a child’s sight has the potential to affect their development at school. But, if diagnosed early, conditions such as a lazy eye or squints can be rectified before they become permanent.

“I’d like to urge parents in the area to book an appointment with us early this summer, especially as it may be something that children have missed in the past year due to Covid restrictions.”
