CHILDREN'S EYE EXAMS
Vision is one of the most important senses for a child’s development. It is crucial for children to learn, play, and interact with the world around them. Roughly 80% of a child’s learning is gained through vision, so it is important to have their eyes examined early and any sign of disease treated promptly.
Our optometrists are able to perform eye exams on babies and children of all ages.
Even if your child cannot speak or cannot recognize letters, various objective tests can be done to detect and manage vision problems and eye diseases in children.
How often should I get my child's eyes examined?
The Canadian Association of Optometrists recommends that infants have their first eye examination between six and nine months of age.
Children should have at least one eye exam between the ages of two and five,
and yearly after starting school to ensure optimal vision and development.
