We Believe That Healthy Vision Starts When We’re Young

The best way to ensure your child’s eyes are protected as they grow up is by making sure they attend regular eye exams. Eye exams will help discover potential issues early and provide your child with opportunities to preserve their vision.

All you have to do is book an appointment with our team.

Important Information to Know

Newborns should have their first eye exam between 6 and 9 months or as prescribed by an optometrist. Preschool children between 2 and 5 should have at least one eye exam before they start school. Once children start school, they should have an eye exam every year.

This schedule will ensure your child’s eyes are growing as expected and ensure any problems are addressed before they impact your child’s vision development.

75% of vision loss is preventable, and many forms of developing eye conditions, such as strabismus or amblyopia, can be treated effectively when detected early. Without treatments, these childhood conditions just get worse and develop into vision problems that can affect your child’s ability to learn.

As children grow into adults, their bodies undergo rapid change. During this time, changes to their eyes can impact their vision. 1 in 4 children live with some kind of vision problem by the time they enter school.

Your child may not know how to articulate the problems they have with their vision. Eye conditions often develop slowly, so your child may not actually realize they even have a vision problem in the first place.

Eye exams are objective, enabling us to gain a clear perspective on your child’s eye health.

Eye See… Eye Learn®

The Eye See…Eye Learn® (ESEL) program—funded in part by the Ontario government—provides junior kindergarten kids with a complimentary eye exam and a pair of glasses (if required).

Nearly 80% of learning is visual. Given the importance of eye health and its impact on learning, the Eye See… Eye Learn® program ensures that all children have the visual support to succeed as they begin their academic adventure.

Annual children’s eye exams are covered by OHIP, meaning there’s no out-of-pocket expense for you. If your child requires glasses, a pair will be provided at no cost (up to $250 value) by Nikon Lenswear, OGI, and our clinic.

We invite you to contact us if you have any questions about the Eye See…Eye Learn® program.

Covered by OHIP & Family Benefits Plans
