Mrs L Blair, Principal Eglinton Primary School

“Our Year 4 children enjoy a very informative presentation – carefully researched and very relevant to their age and stage, about the components and workings of the eye.

Children enjoy the opportunity to participate in the many Competitions organised by Eglinton Eyecare and Parents and children feel very special at the ‘Award Ceremonies’ following.
Parents and Grandparents love viewing the childrens’ work displayed in the Waiting area and of course this does much to raise the profile of Eglinton Primary School.

Because of the relationship and rapport developed with the children and the regular opportunities they have to visit to leave off Competition entries, children are not anxious or distressed when they visit as a patient. Recently a staff member met with School to discuss and explore coloured overlays, a tool to support children struggling with reading because of dyslexia difficulties. How reassuring it was to hear about the planned professional development for a number of key staff within Eglinton Eyecare and that staff were proactive in meeting with teachers to identify the needs of our children. We were able to discuss also the impact of changes to the teaching of reading and the implications when testing younger patients using a letter board. “
