Children’s Eye Care
For Infant Eye Exams:
All infants should be evaluated at 6 months of age. However, if you have any concerns before that time please bring your baby in for assessment.
In Alberta, 25% of children begin grade one with an undiagnosed vision or eye health problem, that mean 1 in every 4 children has vision problems. Vision problems can interfere with a child’s ability to learn during their first critical years in school. Good vision helps with good grades. So, have your child’s eyes test yearly. Alberta Health Care covers the cost of annual comprehensive eye examinations for all children, until they turn 19. The Alberta Association of Optometrists recommends children have their first comprehensive eye exam between the ages of six and nine months, their second between the ages of two and five, and one every year after that.
