Annual, comprehensive eye exams are the only way to know that your child has good vision and eye health. These exams are particularly important to have done before school starts whether your child is starting their new day or they are in the 5th grade.
Early identification of a child's vision problem can be crucial because children often are more responsive to treatment when problems are diagnosed early.
Your child's first eye test is recommended by the College of Optometrists at 6 months to test for congenital eye disease and tracking abilities. Your child’s vision is essential in developing skills such as reading, writing, hand-eye coordination, and social skills.
Dr. Frank Stepec, Optometrist in Etobicoke, Ontario offers children's eye exams that are covered by OHIP until 20 years of age. If your child does need glasses, we also offer a variety of children's frames that are available in a variety of colours.
