It’s good to get it done before school starts to prepare them for better learning.
In Ontario, kids get their eye exams covered using their Ontario Health card once a year.
Every year, the senior kindergarten (SK) children who need glasses can get a pair of glasses sponsored by Ontario Association of Optometrists, and the pupillary distance (PD) and pupil height measurements done by participating Eye See Eye Learn Optometrists like us!
This year, there's even better news! The junior kindergarten (JK) children get to enjoy this benefit from Ontario Optometrists too. Every JK and SK child will be able to get a pair of glasses after the eye exam if they need it. See https://optom.on.ca/esel/ for more details.
The eye exam and the glasses would need to be done at the same Optometrist clinic. Dr. Liang is one of the participating Optometrists who sees children. She also volunteers her time for the accurate measurement of making the lenses centered on the eyes and ensure quality control of making the lenses work for the child while she participates in the Eye See Eye Learn program.
Dr. Liang sees children from six months onwards, so if your baby's first eye exam is coming up, please call us or request an appointment online. While a child's eye exam utilizes an eye chart that includes pictures, number and letters, for younger children under the age of 3 years old, Dr. Liang uses black and white stripe in various sizes to check their reaction.
