Children’s Eye Exams (0-19)

Our Optometrists can perform eye examinations on any child, including newborns. During the exam your child’s vision and alignment of their eyes will be assessed. Early detection and treatment of eye problems in children is essential in preventing vision loss and ensuring proper visual development.

80% of learning is visual. When children struggle in school it is more often linked to their vision. Many children may be struggling with reading or are unable to see what the teacher is writing on the board. Routine eye examinations are essential for children to ensure they excel in their learning.

An Optometrist has the skills to conduct a thorough eye examination on a child even if they do not know their ABCs. We are equipped with many child-friendly ways to assess and evaluate your child’s vision and eye health.  

Children (0-19) are recommended to have annual eye examinations which are covered through Alberta Health Care.
