Matthews Eyewear and Eyecare for Children

Excellent vision is essential for your child's reading and learning performance, and reaching their full potential in sport and life in general, while delays in addressing any visual problems can sometimes have lifetime consequences.

At Matthews we truly understand the importance of getting your children's eyesight right and want to ensure they love the glasses they wear.

That’s why we’ve developed our nationwide network of Poppet Pods, to fully meet our younger customers’ specific needs.

All our branches offer child-friendly eye examinations and health strategies.

Plus, we have three Poppet Optics branches dedicated to children, ready to support you with specialised advice.
