Children’s Eye Exams

Request Appointment

Good vision plays a vital role in a child’s development.

It is essential for parents and caregivers to ensure that their child’s eyes are healthy and working correctly.

To help safeguard your child’s sight, make sure they have regular comprehensive eye exams at least once per year.

When was your child’s last eye exam? Request an appointment today.

Children’s Visual Problems

Young children aren’t always able to tell us if something is wrong, so it is up to parents and caregivers to look for signs of potential vision problems. If your child is experiencing problems with their sight, it is essential that these issues be identified and corrected as soon as possible to avoid long term problems such as permanent vision loss.

Untreated visual problems can hamper your child’s development and impact their ability to learn.

Your child may be experiencing visual problems if they:

  • Are squinting a lot
  • Are rubbing their eyes frequently
  • Avoid close up activities such as reading
  • Hold reading material close to their face
  • Frequently lose their place while reading
  • Need to follow along with their finger to avoid losing their place while reading
  • Complain of frequent headaches
  • Complain of double vision
  • Cover one eye while looking at things
  • Frequently tilt their head to one side
  • Have a misaligned eye
  • Complain of double vision

If you suspect your child may have visual problems you should request an appointment for them as soon as possible.

Children’s Eye Exam Schedule

The Canadian Association of Optometrists recommends that children undergo their first eye exam between the ages of 6 and 9 months old, while preschool aged children should have at least one eye exam between the ages of 2 and 5 years old.

School-aged children (between the ages of 6 and 19) should see their optometrist at least every year. However, depending on your child’s unique visual needs your optometrist may suggest that they visit more frequently.
