Children don't always have the awareness or experience needed to recognize that they have a vision problem. Most of the time, they assume that everyone sees the way they do. All children need yearly eye examinations to determine if they have healthy eyes and vision. As the visual pathways develop rapidly in early childhood, uncorrected vision problems can lead to permanent vision loss. It is thus recommended that children have their first eye examination at three years of age, and even as young as six months if there is a family history of vision problems such as strabismus or amblyopia.
Young children do not have to know the alphabet or even speak to have their vision tested. Many tests use pictures or symbols familiar to preschoolers, and children can respond by naming, matching or pointing. Other tests are done objectively, so young children don't have to communicate to be evaluated.
Children are covered by OHIP for a complete eye examination every year until their 20th birthday.
An eye examination is more than just an eyechart – it is a complete and detailed examination of your visual ability, vision and eye health. It includes a thorough history taking, an assessment of your eye coordination, evaluation of eye structures, and measure of your spectacle prescription. It is recommended that adults have their eyes examined every two years to monitor the health of the eyes, even if they don't wear eyeglasses. Yearly eye examinations are recommended for patients with health problems affecting the eyes, such as diabetes, glaucoma, cataracts, strabismus or amblyopia.
Eye examinations are covered by OHIP for those with these conditions.
Every effort will be made to see patients with ocular emergencies within a day. Please call if you experience a sudden loss of vision or a red or painful eye. Many eye infections can be treated in our office.
