Children’s Vision Month Special

October is Children's Vision Month! As school is back up and running it is time to get your child in for an eye exam.

  • 1 in 4 school-aged children have an undetected vision problemWeb_171
  • most children do not know when what they are seeing is not "normal"
  • 80% of learning is visual

The Canadian Association of Optometrists recommends children have the first eye exam between 6 and 9 months, then at age 3, before school starts, and yearly after that. In Nova Scotia, there is coverage for a child's eye exam every second year before his/her 10th birthday.

We also have some exciting in office offers. For the month of October, one lucky person will win their purchase of kids glasses! We'll also be rolling out our Eye-M Growing packages for kids under 16. This will include two pairs of glasses with Trivex/Phoenix material lenses. These lenses provide great optics, are extremely light, and are shatterproof! When it comes to the second pair, you have up to 14 months to choose it! A lot can change in 14 months with a child, such as frame size or prescription, and this package will be able to accommodate that. We're very excited to offer this flexibility to our patients and look forward to another Children's Vision Month!

  2. New flashing lights or spots in your vision
  3. Foreign body in the eye or ocular injury
  4. Sudden onset of a painful eye
