The Ontario Association of Optometrists recommends that children get regular eye exams because pediatric vision problems are common — in fact, one in four children will have difficulty learning because of vision difficulties. Early and frequent eye exams are the best way to prevent this. Vision screenings are not a substitute for a comprehensive Vision and Eye Health Evaluation by an eye care professional.

Some conditions in children can make it more likely that they will experience vision problems. These conditions include:

  • Certain medical conditions

  • Premature birth or complications during pregnancy or delivery

  • Turned or crossed eyes

  • Eye injury

  • Developmental delays

  • Family history of eye issues/wearing glasses

  • Significant amounts of screen time and little time spent outdoors


We welcome young patients at Chic Eyes. During the exam, Dr. Ng will:

  • Evaluate your child’s eyes for overall health and any eye conditions

  • Assess eye synchronicity, focusing and tracking

  • Provide an eyeglass prescription if needed

  • Discuss the results of the exam, measures you can take to preserve your child’s eye health, and options for vision correction (including glasses, contact lenses, vision therapy, and myopia control)

  • Answer any questions or concerns you may have about your child’s vision

All children ages 0-19 are eligible for a once-yearly eye exam through OHIP.

Please bring the following to your child’s appointment

Your child’s current glasses

Contact lens and solution information

A list of current medications and vitamins
