Checking Children's Eyesight with a Fun Storybook

As from today, parents in the UK can do 
a basic eyesight check at home with their children  
thanks to the Zookeeper Zoe storybook 
which is available for free at Boots stores nationwide 

Developed with the National Literacy Trust, 
the book contains four simple to follow eye check activities 
to help parents and carers understand
if their child might need support with their vision.

We attended the launch party, packed with animal fun, 
and tested our eyesight while following Zoe's zoo adventures.
The book has lovely, colourful illustrations 
and an easy to follow guide for the eye check activities. 
The 4 year old boy was happy to take part in all the activities, 
as they are intended to be like a game.

The book is also a good reminder that all children 
should have a regular eye health check from the age of three 
and every two years afterwards.

Zookeeper Zoe is a first step in understanding your child’s vision, 
and is not intended to replace a comprehensive eye check.

Eye health checks are provided free 
-courtesy of the NHS- for all children up to 16 years old.  
If your child needs glasses, 
you can also get an NHS voucher towards the cost, 
so often they are free of charge.

Zookeeper Zoe is free and 350,000 copies will be available as from 16 March 2016 in Boots stores across the UK. You can book online a free of charge eye check for children up to 16 years old.
