Every child should have an annual eye health and vision exam to ensure they are able to see the best that they can and to catch problems when they are easy to treat.
The cost for this exam is covered under OHIP for children 19 years of age and under. Testing for younger children does not require the ability to read as there are other ways Dr. Hsiung can test their vision.
Children often cannot tell you when they begin experiencing vision problems. Look for these signs:
Squinting, tilting the head or straining to see
Rubbing the eyes frequently
Poor eye/hand coordination
Difficulty in reading
If one or more of these symptoms exist with your child, call our office today to schedule an appointment.
