Free children's glasses

In addition to the free children's prescription lenses funded by the NHS, Optical Express has free designer frames for children up to the age of 16. Kids and parents will love the selection on offer, including Disney Princess, BMX, Marvel Heroes, Spiderman and No Fear. No matter their age, your little one is sure to wear their glasses with pride and enjoy great vision in the classroom, playground and at home.

Looking after your little one's eyes

Vision plays a huge part in children's lives. At Optical Express, we take your child's eye health seriously. We encourage all children to attend annual eye examinations, where our experts can identify any issues and put measures in place to rectify them. If your child requires glasses, we'll offer guidance on the best type of frame to help with comfort and confidence. We also recommend durable polycarbonate lenses for children, which provide strength and safety for these very active glasses wearers. Our expert optometrists and dispensing opticians will advise on the best shape and fit for younger patients.

Lenses to suit all

Three different materials are used for lenses: plastic, glass and polycarbonate. All three are available for every prescription, whether you require single vision, bifocal or varifocal lenses.

Our plastic lenses are the lightest and most popular option, although polycarbonate lenses are the best solution for children and active adults. Glass lenses have the slimmest and sleekest appearance and can be an excellent option for many frames.
