Regular eye exams ensure that a child’s academic, athletic and personal development is not hampered by visual problems.

Children’s Eye Exams are fully covered by B.C. Medical Services Plan until they turn 19 years old with a valid BC Care Card or BC Services Card.



The Canadian Association of Optometrists recommends:

First eye exam at 6 months old.

Second eye exam at 3 years old.

Eye exams every year from 5 – 18 years old.
