Expert Pediatric Eye Exams: Nurturing Young Vision for a Bright Future!

Our pediatric eye exams are designed to ensure your child's vision is developing correctly and to catch any issues early on. We follow the guidelines set by the Ontario Association of Optometrists, recommending exams at six months, age 3, and annually once schooling begins.

Early detection of conditions like Strabismus, Amblyopia, and Myopia is crucial. Strabismus can lead to Amblyopia, where the brain ignores signals from one eye, causing poor vision. Amblyopia is treatable if caught early. Myopia, or nearsightedness, can develop early and increase the risk of eye conditions later in life. Our exams are comprehensive, using advanced technology to assess your child's vision accurately.

Our child-friendly environment aims to make the experience enjoyable. We offer specialized care to ensure your child's vision journey is off to a great start.

Unique features:

  • Specialized pediatric optometrists ensuring accurate assessments and gentle care for children's eyes.
  • Child-friendly environment with games and activities to make the experience enjoyable.
  • Cutting-edge technology for comprehensive evaluations, ensuring early detection of vision issues.
