Eye Tests for Kids in Fort McMurray, Drayton Valley and Leduc

Children's Eye Exam

Kids often have vision problems, but they don't realize they do. Pediatric exams usually last only 20 minutes. We test for ocular motility, colour vision, general ocular health, and determine if an eyewear prescription is necessary for your child. The Eye Centre is proud to offer eye tests for kids in Fort McMurray, Drayton Valley and Leduc.

Types and Frequency of Eye Exams

How often should I take my children for an eye exam?

  • Infants

    Doctors of optometry recommend that babies have their
    first exam between six and nine months.

  • Toddlers and Preschoolers

    Doctors of Optometry recommend children have at least
    one eye exam between the ages of 2 and 5.

  • Kindergarten

    Once your child reaches kindergarten they should have an annual eye exam, and it is an opportunity to ensure your child is ready for school.

Alberta Health covers annual eye exams for kids 18 and younger. We strongly encourage parents to take advantage of this coverage and bring your children in for an annual comprehensive eye exam.

We provide thorough examinations for all members of the family. Visit any of our locations and have your eyes tested, get fitted for contact lenses, or try on a new pair of frames.
