It happens: Parents can easily miss their child’s eye problems. Issues can occur in only one eye, making them difficult to notice. The earlier an eye-health or vision problem is identified, the more likely it can be corrected.
The Eye See Eye Learn program provides an eye exam and free glasses, if needed, for kindergarten-aged children. Twenty-five per cent of kids begin first grade with an undiagnosed eye problem. To book your child’s eye exam, please visit optometrists.ab.ca.
The Alberta Association of Optometrists represents almost 800 Doctors of Optometry in over eighty communities across the province. Members are highly-trained, regulated health professionals who provide primary eye-health and vision care to Albertans. Learn more at optometrists.ab.ca
