Did you know that children rely on their vision for more than 80% of their learning?

Children Eye Exams

It is essential for your child to have annual eye exams so that any vision problems can be detected and treated as soon as possible.

The Canadian Association of Optometrists recommends that infants have their first eye exam at six months old. At this age we can usually diagnose visual conditions such as “crossed eyes” and “lazy eyes,” both of which need treatment. After their first eye exam, kids should have their eyes checked every year. Vision can have a significant impact on your child’s learning, bringing them in annually will help ensure they have everything they need to succeed at school. Your child might not notice they have a vision problem, they may simply assume everyone sees the way they do.

The following symptoms may indicate your child has a visual problem:

  • Frequent headaches or irritability

  • Underachieving in school/ Performing below their potential

  • Short attention span

  • Covering or rubbing of the eyes when reading

  • Avoidance of near or distance work

  • Tilting of the head or unusual posture when reading

  • Using a finger to maintain place while reading

  • Omitting or confusing words when reading

  • Holding a tablet / or book very close to their face

  • Regularly losing their place while reading

  • Poor athletic performance

  • Sitting very close to the television

Common conditions that may emerge during this stage in your child’s life include hyperopia or farsightedness (blurred vision when seeing objects up close), myopia or nearsightedness (blurred vision when seeing objects at a distance), and astigmatism (distorted vision at all distances). In addition, your child will be examined for other vision problems such as amblyopia (lazy eye), strabismus (eye turn), childhood cataracts and other ocular diseases. The above conditions often require treatment with spectacle correction and/or contact lens correction. If you notice any of these symptoms, book an appointment for your child today!

Annual eye examinations for children 19 years of age and younger are covered by OHIP. Call our office today to find out if your child is eligible for an eye exam.

Dr. Cvercko is first class! I am so impressed with her professionalism and patience to help me get the right prescription. I would highly recommend her and the office to others. Thanks a ton for everything.


Setting an appointment was easy and prompt, customer service is excellent the place is clean and the overall ambience is fantastic. I sat at the sofa and i could smell fabric conditioner on the cushions. The fact that they pay attention to small details made me like the place a great deal.

I moved out of the city and still make sure I only go to La Rose, worth the trip!!

My family and I have been coming to La Rose Vision since it opened in 2011. The service and selection is phenomenal. Over the years, I have referred many of my friends, who were surprised by the exceptional service.
