It is almost that time of year again... time to get the kids ready for school.
One thing that should be on every child's check list is getting a comprehensive eye exam.
A large component of a child's learning depends on vision, so a thorough eye exam that checks your child's eye health and vision is crucial to ensure that their vision is not negatively impacting their learning and development.
Did you know, Alberta Health Care covers routine eye exams yearly for kids under 19 years of age? Just present their Alberta Health Care card at the visit.
If your child is enrolled in kindergarten, Alberta Health Care also provides glasses to those who need a prescription through the Eye See Eye Learn Program.
