Children’s Eye Examination
Vision is a crucial component to a child's development and learning. Unfortunately, vision problems in children often go undiagnosed because children may not be able to report that their vision is impaired or may not notice vision changes if only one eye is affected.
There are many conditions that can cause vision impairment and, if left untreated, can become permanent. Early diagnosis of these conditions can help prevent the progression and minimize severity of the disease. We will address these concerns and more during your child’s eye examination so please give us a call to arrange for an appointment.
The Canadian Association of Optometrists recommends annual eye exams for children between 3-18 years old. These exams are fully covered under the BC Medical Service Plan (MSP).* While other clinics may set their own exam price and may charge parents additional co-pay, our team at Evergreen Optometry believe in maximizing access to health care and will not charge any additional costs for a child's eye exam.
