Up to one million children under the age of 12 could have problems with their eyes and not know it, according to new research.

Figures show more than one in five parents in the UK have never taken their kids to have their eyes tested, and almost three quarters of them didn't know their children should have regular eye tests.

So how often do you go for an eye test?
