Eye evaluations and free glasses for kindergarten students

Eye problems can go unnoticed in young children because they don’t always know they’re not seeing correctly, so they don’t complain to parents about their eyesight.

The Eye See… Eye Learn program is a new program by the Government of Ontario that provides comprehensive eye exams by local optometrists (or eye doctors) to junior kindergarten students in our school region.

 

The eye exams are covered under provincial health insurance (or OHIP) when you show your child’s health card.

This means that there is no out-of-pocket cost for the eye exam. If your child needs a pair of glasses, he or she will receive them FREE of charge courtesy of our participating sponsors.
