Eye Exams Tailored to Your Child’s Needs

Richmond Hill Optometric Clinic puts family eye care first, so we pride ourselves on our ability to provide excellent comprehensive eye exams for children of all ages. Our optometrists work hard to ensure your child has a calm and pleasant exam experience.

The Importance of Annual Eye Exams for Children

Patients of all ages benefit from regular eye exams, but since children’s eyes can change rapidly during their formative years, annual eye exams are particularly important.

To ensure that all children can get the care they need, regardless of family income, the Ontario Health Insurance Plan (OHIP) covers the cost of annual eye exams (as well as any follow-up assessments) for children up to 19 years old.

Children aren’t always able to effectively communicate when something is wrong, and may not even realize they’re experiencing vision problems. Annual eye exams let your child’s optometrist keep an eye out for signs of trouble and address or correct any problems that may arise.

What to Expect During the Exam

Our optometrists are seasoned professionals and pride themselves on providing high-quality care for patients of all ages. During your child’s exam, their optometrist will:

  • Review your child’s medical history with you
  • Discuss your child’s visual needs with you
  • Test your child’s eye coordination and eye movements
  • Conduct tests to look for signs of trouble, such as eye diseases
  • Conduct a neurological assessment by evaluating your child’s pupils’ responsiveness and the quality of their peripheral vision

We Participate in the Eye See… Eye Learn® Program

80% of all learning is visual, so an undiagnosed vision problem could impact your child’s ability to learn effectively. To help ensure all children can reach their full potential, Richmond Hill Optometric Clinic participates in the Eye See… Eye Learn Program® (ESEL). This program is designed to help detect, diagnose and treat vision problems in junior kindergarten children and provide prescription glasses to children who need them free of charge.
