COVID19 service update: This service has been suspended. Where possible all service users have been contacted and will again be informed once the service is fully operational. 

Operating as part of the Integrated Children’s Additional Needs (ICAN) Service, we provide eye care to children between the ages of 6 months and 8 years who live in Leeds. We provide diagnosis and treatment for vision defects, eye misalignment (squints) and eye movement disorders. We also lead the vision screening service in Leeds where all children aged 5 are offered a vision test in school.

Who's it for?

We assess, diagnose and treat children between the age of 6 months and 8 years with squints, visual development and eye movement disorders. We provide a service at Child Development Centres for young people under 19 and lead the school vision screening service in Leeds. We also provide care for older children who have special needs or learning difficulties. 

We offer treatment for reduced vision (Amblyopia) which may include glasses and wearing an eye patch. We also advise on treatment for squints, screen for eye diseases as required and refer on to the hospital Eye Service as appropriate.
