Adult & Senior Eye Exams
Regular eye exams are a must for maintaining your ocular health. Adults should have an eye exam every two years. Adults over 65 should have their eyes examined yearly.
Childrens Eye Exams
The Canadian Association of Optometrists recommends that a child have their first exam at 6 months of age. A child should have a comprehensive exam by 3 years of age. All children should have an eye exam yearly.
Early eye exams are important. Children need the following visual skills that are essential for optical learning:
- Excellent visual acuity at all distances
- Accurate and comfortable eye teaming skills
- Accurate eye movement skills
- Accurate and comfortable focusing skills
Remember that appropriate vision testing at an early age is vital to insure your child has the visual skills he or she needs to perform well in school.
