We propose to undertake a new study ‘Glasses in Classes’ to find out if schools can support children wearing their glasses. The study will be aimed at 4-5 year children who will all receive a vision screening assessment in reception class and will entail:

  • Asking parents to consent to sharing the results of the vision screening and eye test.

  • Schools and Health (children’s eye service) communicating so that an additional pair of glasses can be ordered and kept in school.

  • We would like to trial this study in 100 schools across Bradford, 50 schools will be randomised to receive the intervention and 50 will act as comparators. At the end of the study we will provide a pair of “school glasses” for children in all the participating schools
