Children’s Eyes in London

Dedicated to improving children’s eye health

What to expect from your first visit

Mr Reddy is the eye doctor (ophthalmologist) but it is essential that you see an orthoptist before you see him in order to avoid two separate appointments on different days.

The first video explains what the role of each person is. Please watch it to understand what will happen at the appointment as this will be important for your child. The second video shows how you can prepare your child with toys so they do not become nervous at the appointment as they will be prepared for the eye drops.
