That's why we recommend that all children have their first eye exam at 6 months old, again at 2-3 years old, and every year after that. In Ontario, yearly eye exams for children are covered by OHIP until they turn 20 years old. Click the link in our bio to book your child their OHIP-insured eye exam.
Children born in 2014 are eligible only until June 30, 2019 to participate in the Eye See...Eye Learn® program for the 2018-19 school year.
