Helpful Eye Health Links
Here are some great links covering a range of information about eye health, vision problems and learning, how pregnancy impacts your vision, along with some interesting eye facts, and so much more. Remember, annual eye exams for children and youth are covered by OHIP!
Your child should have a complete optometric eye exam at six months, before starting kindergarten, and annually throughout the school years to make sure your children’s eyes are healthy, developing properly, and can support learning.
