Children’s Eye Care

Children’s Eye Care

Did you know more than 80% of your child’s learning is based upon vision? With such a big focus on visual learning, it is extremely important to ensure that your child can see correctly while trying to learn. As children develop and grow, rapid change can occur, especially to the eyes, resulting in vision and other eye problems before your child can even notice. We recommend that your child visit us for their first eye exam at six months of age. OHIP covers children’s exams until the age of 20. Are you interested in scheduling your child’s eye care appointment at Thornhill Vision Care? Contact us today. We’d be more than happy to get them on our schedule.

Comprehensive Children’s Eye Exams

Although a vision screening is highly important for your child, our comprehensive eye exams for children in Thornhill are a bit more in-depth and thorough. Your child’s eye examination may include dilation of the pupils, which allows their optometrist in Thornhill at Thornhill Vision Care to take a closer look at the visual system and check overall eye health. Children that have failed vision screenings, have vision complaints, or have been referred by a medical professional may require additional testing to diagnose.

Your Child’s First Eye Exam

At Thornhill Vision Care, we recommend that patients receive their first eye exam at six months of age. Many parents believe that their child can’t have an eye exam until they can read the letters and properly communicate; this, however, is far from the case. Children as young as six months of age can actually have an eye examination if necessary. Once your child has had their first eye care examination, we recommend annual appointments going forward to monitor everything.
