Paediatric dispensing is not an official term but is considered to relate to children aged 0-16 years of age. Statutory regulations do not permit the dispensing of spectacle prescriptions by unqualified individuals to children under the age of 16 years according to the Opticians Act (1989) and as a result dispensing can only be carried out by, or under the supervision of, a registered practitioner ie a dispensing optician or optometrist. This article discusses the important considerations for dispensing spectacles for children.
