Children's Eye Exams

Regular Eye Exams Are Necessary to a Child’s Eye Health

Growing up is an exciting time. But it can also be frustrating if it feels like you’re being left behind the other kids. Undiagnosed eye problems can have an impact on a child’s ability to walk, speak, and develop the way other kids do. They can also make learning more difficult.

By scheduling an eye exam for your child, you’re making sure that they have a necessary tool to learn, play, and grow! Schedule an appointment today!

How Often Do Kids Need Eye Exams?

Your child should have an eye exam when they reach 6 months of age, and then annually following the 6 month mark.

Once your child is school-aged, consider eye exams part of your annual back-to-school routine. We make it easy for you by \pre-scheduling your child’s annual eye exam each time you come visit our office.

Eye See… Eye Learn

80% of learning materials are presented visually. At Shelburne Primary EyeCare, we believe every child deserves a chance to succeed, which is why we’re proud to partner with the Eye See… Eye Learn program. This amazing initiative offers free eye exams and glasses if necessary to kindergarten-aged kids; empowering them to really do their best in the classroom.

Kids’ Eye Exams at Shelburne Primary EyeCare

We want you and your family to feel at home with us, so we’ll do everything we can to give you the best possible eyecare experience. Whether it’s taking a few extra minutes to answer your questions, or just offering a friendly “hello” as you walk in the door, we’ll do whatever it takes to make you feel wanted and welcome.

We don’t just take care of your child’s eyes. We teach you and your child how they can take a proactive role in their eye health. Our holistic approach to eyecare means we greatly value preventative eyecare, and day-to-day practices to encourage eye health. That’s why we take the time to highlight important things like eye nutrition and eyelid hygiene. We will always empower our patients with knowledge.

In addition to testing the function of your child’s eyes, we examine the structure of your child’s eye. We prescribe retinal imaging as a means of taking a thorough look at your child’s retinal health through the use of advanced diagnostic tools like the Optomap and our digital retinal camera. Retinal imaging allows us to detect early signs of disease or structural damage and gives us a better opportunity to provide the appropriate treatment.

After your child’s appointment, visit our dispensary! We carry some awesome kids eyewear brands, including OGI Kids, and Kids Dots. They’ll love picking out their favourite frames, and you’ll love the newfound clarity with which they view the world.
