Eye Care Should Start Early
In Alberta, 25% of children enter school with an undiagnosed vision problem, which can greatly affect the way they learn, play, and develop.
Many eye disorders and diseases progress without symptoms, and if your child is experiencing vision symptoms, they may not realize it. This is why eye exams are an essential part of your developing child’s healthcare team.
Book your child’s eye care appointment at Royal Vista Eyecare to protect their vision and eye health.
How Often Should Your Child Get an Eye Exam?
The Alberta Association of Optometrists recommends that your child gets an eye exam according to the following schedule:
- Once between the ages of 6–9 months
- Once between the ages of 2–5 years
Yearly from ages 6–19
What Can We Detect During an Eye Exam?
During an eye exam at Royal Vista Eyecare , we take the time to get to know your child and their unique vision needs.
We’ll take an in-depth look at their entire visual system to determine if they have any vision or eye issues. If they do, we will create a customized treatment plan to help get their vision back on track.
We check for a variety of eye conditions, including:
- Myopia (nearsightedness)
- Hyperopia (farsightedness)
- Amblyopia (lazy eye)
- Strabismus (crossed eyes)
- Eye coordination issues
Eye See… Eye Learn
At Royal Vista Eyecare, we participate in the Eye See . . . Eye Learn™ program. This program is designed to ensure that all kindergarten-aged children in Alberta have access to the eye care they need.
As part of the program, any child who gets a comprehensive eye exam and requires eye glasses will be provided with a free pair.
When you book your next appointment, tell us you’d like to take part in the Eye See…Eye Learn™ program and we can tell you how!
