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!

Please be advised that effective September 1st 2021, we will not be seeing any children (19 and younger), seniors (65 and older) as well as other types of OHIP-insured exams (such as diabetes) due to a province wide job action.

We are sorry for the inconvenience and understand your frustration, however we ask that you continue to treat our staff respectfully during this time.
