Children’s Eye Exams

Comprehensive Eye Care for Kids

Did you know that 80% of learning is visual and learning-related vision problems account for 20% of all learning disabilities? It is so important that vision problems are detected early and this can only be done through a comprehensive eye examination. Fortunately, OHIP covers the cost of annual eye exams for children 19 years old and younger.

Kids Eyeglasses Package

Your child’s prescription can change quickly as they grow up, thats why at Elite Vision Therapy Centre we offers a complimentary 2nd set of prescription lenses within 16 months of the first purchase of a complete set of glasses.

My Child’s Eyes
are Fine, Right?

Young children may not realize that they are having problems with their vision. They may think that everyone else sees the same way they do. Vision problems can be difficult to detect, even for well-meaning parents. Watch for these symptoms:

  • Holding objects, such as books, close to their face
  • Complaining of frequent headaches
  • Sitting very close to the television
  • Rubbing their eyes frequently
  • Blinking frequently
  • Regularly losing their place when reading
  • Covering one eye while reading
  • Tilting their head while reading
  • Having a short attention span
  • Underachieving in school
  • Having poor athletic performance

Early detection of vision problems by an optometrist is essential to your child’s visual development. Schedule an appointment for your child today.

Eye Exams for Kids

Did you know that 80% of learning is visual and learning-related vision problems account for 20% of all learning disabilities? It is so important that vision problems are detected early and this can only be done through a comprehensive eye examination.

Baby’s First Eye Exam

Your kids deserve the best life has to offer and that includes clear, comfortable vision and healthy eyes. The Canadian Association of Optometrists recommends that infants have their first eye exam at 6 months of age. This may seem early because they can’t verbally communicate yet, but we, at Elite Vision Therapy Centre are very experienced in pediatric and special needs eye care.

At this young age we use preferential looking to tell if an infant can see an object rather than using the usual eye chart. We confirm that the eyes are well aligned and that there is no significant prescription and we check for any ocular health issues. Your baby can stay in your arms the entire time, feeling comfortable and safe.

Children should have complete eye examinations at three years of age and every year thereafter to make sure their eyes continue to develop properly. It is important to detect any vision problems such as myopia (near sightedness), hyperopia (farsightedness) or astigmatism (curvature) that may interfere with vision and subsequently, learning. We also make sure that the eyes are working well together and remain healthy.
To help build your child’s visual development, hand-eye coordination and depth perception try these fun games and task:

  • Painting
  • Colouring and Drawing
  • Playing with Blocks
  • Sorting Objects
  • Assembling Objects
  • Doing Puzzles
