Have your child take an eye exam
Did you know that 86% of young Canadians under the age of 6 have never had a comprehensive eye exam?* It’s essential that your child meet with an eyecare professional for a complete examination. Myopia, for example, is generally detected in childhood and often gets worse in adolescence. Evaluating your child’s vision even before they begin school means diagnosing—then gaining control of—potential vision problems like myopia.
