Most parents don't realise if their child has a vision problem when they start school. In this blog article, Beverley Robertson explains how pleased she is that her daughter, Elsie, had screening.
Beverley gave up her job as a lawyer to be a full time parent to her 3 children, Elsie, her twin brother James, and their older sister Alice. She lives with her husband Aidan and the children in South Oxfordshire, near Henley-on-Thames.
