Children’s Eye Exams

We Believe That Vision & Health Maintenance Starts When We’re Young

EYE SEE…EYE LEARN®

This program – funded in part by the Province of Ontario – provides junior kindergarten kids with a complimentary eye exam as well as a pair of glasses (if required).

Up to 80% of learning comes directly through vision. Given the importance of eye health and the impact it can have on learning, the Eye See…Eye Learn® program ensures that all kids have the tools they need to be successful as they begin their academic adventure.

The eye exam is covered by OHIP, meaning there is no out of pocket expense for you. If your child requires glasses a pair will be provided at no cost (a $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.

Did you know that OHIP provides coverage for an annual eye exam for all kids under age 19? As well, most workplace benefits programs that cover your family also provide coverage for eye exams.

Newborns should have their first eye exam before they are 18 months old or as prescribed by an Optometrist. Children should have eye exams annually. OHIP provides coverage for children age 0 – 19 years of age.

75% of Vision Loss is Preventable

Many forms of developing eye conditions – such as strabismus or amblyopia – can be treated effectively when detected early.

25% of Children Develop Vision Concerns

As children grow into adults their bodies undergo rapid change. During this time, changes to their eyes can impact their vision. It’s no surprise that 1 in 4 live with some kind of vision problem by the time they enter school.

Eye Exams Say What Your Child Cannot

Often, your child may not know how to articulate the changes to their vision that they are experiencing. If an eye disease has been progressing for some time, such as myopia, your child may not actually realize that they even have a vision problem in the first place.

An eye exam is objective, enabling us to gain clear perspective on the health of your child’s eyes.

We Love Teaching Kids About Their Eyes!

The more kids know about their eyes, the better equipped they are to enjoy a lifetime of great eye health.

What You'll Find at New Tecumseth Optometry

Our clinic is completely wheelchair accessible and has been recently renovated to update our exam and testing rooms. You’ll also find our eyewear boutique showing off many of the latest styles of frames and sunglasses from trendy new brands, as well as your old favourites from brands you already love.

Thanks to our on-site lab, we are able to significantly reduce the lead time between when you receive your prescription and when your new set of glasses or sunglasses are ready. Using our Optics Lab, we are better able to monitor quality of the lenses and frames that we offer our patients and clients.

At NTOC we have advanced imaging equipment called the Cirrus HD-OCT (Optical Coherence Tomography). The OCT not only takes pictures of the eye, it can also take direct cross-sectional images of the retina and optic nerve thereby screening for eye disease such as macular degeneration, diabetic eye disease, and glaucoma. It is a very useful tool for early diagnosis and management of eye disease.
