Back To School

It's almost time!

As parents flock to back-to-school sales in coming weeks, you may need to add eyeglasses to the pens, school uniforms, laptops and backpacks on your child's back-to-school supplies list.

Why?

Your son or daughter may be among the 2.6% of children in Canada with a vision impairment significant enough to affect their ability to learn.

Why is seeing clearly in the classroom so important?

It's said that 80% of what a child learns through age 12 is through their eyes.

The best way to know if your child needs glasses is to put a comprehensive eye exam for him or her on your back-to-school to-do list.

Call your local optometrist today!

Thank you to all of our patients for your continued support and advocacy. We are happy to announce that we are resuming eye exams for ALL OHIP-insured patients as the Ontario Association of Optometrists and provincial government agree to enter into formal negotiations.

We ask that you remain patient as we work through the backlog of appointments that were either cancelled or rescheduled. Our staff will be contacting ALL patients who have been added to our cancellation lists due to the job action to prioritize their appointments. We will continue to triage emergency visits and try to accommodate where possible.

Thank you again to all of our patients, we are excited to see you all soon! We ask that you continue to treat our staff respectfully as they work diligently to ensure that everyone is seen in a timely manner.
