Pediatric Eye Examinations

Eye Care Services

boy-vs-diopterParents take the utmost care with their child’s health, but many are not aware of developmental problems that can occur with their child’s eyes. The eyes are not yet fully developed at birth, and in fact, continue to develop throughout childhood.

We all understand the importance of good vision, but did you know children depend on their eyes for over 80% of their learning? Even a minor problem can lead to difficulties in school.

Developmental eye problems often have no symptoms and can remain undiagnosed without proper eyecare. These conditions are best corrected at an early age. Infants and children should have their eyes examined as soon as any problem is noticed, no matter how minor it may seem.

If your child’s eyes look healthy and appear to be developing normally, have them examined by age three just to be sure. Don’t worry if your child is too young to read: we use pictures and puppets to test their vision. The examination can actually be a lot of fun for kids.

Speaking of fun, children’s eyewear is now a lot more fun. Children’s eyewear is now fashionable and durable, and its available in designer brands and bright colours, features that both parents and children like.

Remember that annual eye examinations are covered by Alberta Health Services for those 18 years of age or younger.
