Children's Eyecare

Good vision is critical to a child’s early social, functional and educational development. A full eye examination carried out by an Optometrist, is therefore a necessary part of every child’s developmental checks, especially as children often do not complain of ‘blurred’ vision. 

Experience with young children

Our Optometrists have many years experience testing the vision of young children, and are very comfortable doing so. We have a range of specially developed tests for pre-school and children who don’t know their letters yet. 

Kid zone

A child’s eye test is free on the NHS, and we would encourage regular tests to monitor for any visual difficulties developing. If your child needs glasses to correct their vision, we have the most extensive range of children’s frames available in the locality. 

Customer Reviews

Celine Murray. My family and I have attended Sinead McGurk’s Opticians for over 25 years. Sinead provides an excellent service, and the staff are very attentive.

Diane Caskey. I have been a customer of Sinead since she first opened in magherafelt and my kids go there too. Sinead mcgurk opticians is the best place to go for great friendly service and a fabulous selection of frames, set in a beautiful modern practice with state of the art optical equipment. Sinead and her staff are so knowledgeable and always deliver a lovely professional experience. Well done everyone 👏👏

Mary Anne Murphy. I just can't recommend Sinead and her team any higher. Taking both our children in was such a lovely but educational experience too. From understanding the process in choosing styles to suit as well as seeing and understanding the technology Sinead uses really made me value every penny of this service. With T1 diabetes in our family, eye health is even more important now. Our son is over the moon with his glasses and loves wearing them. I'm so glad to have found this little gem in Mid Ulster, that I trust our eye health with AND know how super they are for helping choose the best frames too.

Ciara Simpson. I would like to thank Sinead and her team for the fantastic service and glasses for my son Shea. Shea requires a very strong prescription. The excellent consultation meant that Shea got a great choice of frames which suited both his needs, as a teenager and frames that were suited to his specific prescription. The end result is amazing. I would highly recommend a visit for any eyecare needs. Thank you @ SineadMcGurkOpticians
