Your child’s vision is ever-changing, so consistently monitoring visual development and changes is essential. We aim to instill healthy, consistent vision care habits in your children from a young age to preserve their vision and overall health.
As children grow, their eyes grow as well, and a lot of what children learn is through their vision. Keeping an eye on children’s vision health while they are growing can help them reach their full potential.
Book an eye exam for your child to help support their vision and development.
The recommended children’s eye exam frequency is:
At least one exam between 6 to 9 months old
Once a year from 2 to 19 years old
We provide OHIP-covered eye exams for children and teens, so you can access affordable care for your family.
Regular eye exams are important for checking your child’s overall eye health.
Signs of a vision problem include:
Rubbing their eyes often
One or more of those signs may indicate there is an underlying eye condition that needs to be diagnosed by an optometrist.
Vision issues such as strabismus (crossed eyes) and amblyopia (lazy eye) can also develop early and must be addressed.
