Is your child’s daily life out of focus?

Discover the possible causes of their discomfort in the following sections, as well as the solution to their vision problems.


If you’ve noticed your child experiencing difficulties reading, if their eyes are glued to the screen or their general motivation is low, these problems may be the result of myopia. This widespread youth vision problem affects distance vision, leaving objects blurry, and it may lead to more serious vision problems later down the road. Did you know that 25% of school-age children suffer from vision problems?*

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.
