Baby and Infant Eye Exams

Our baby and infant's comprehensive eye exams include the following: 

 

  • Baseline check that vision is equal in both eyes

  • Checking alignment of their eyes

  • Muscle testing

  • Check if prescription is within age norms

  • Neurological testing

  • Ocular health check

  • Expert advice on maintaining healthy eyes and healthy vision development

 

 

  • Lazy Eye (Amblyopia)

  • Eye Turn (Strabismus)

  • Tracking Deficiencies (Ocular Motor Dysfynction)

  • Retinoblastoma: the most common type of ocular cancer in children

  • Congenital Glaucoma: a condition in which the eye pressure is high causing damage to the optic nerve

Our Baby and Infant Eye Exams are modified to be tailored to your child's age, visual needs and stage in development. The Canadian and American Association of Optometrists recommends that your child's first eye exam be at 6 months of age. It is critical that vision is checked early on, as any prescription, eye turn or disease can severely impede vision development. This can lead to a lazy eye, a condition known as amblyopia. 

 

Your child does not need to know their letters or even be able to speak yet for the eye exam. We make it fun for your little ones and use different instruments to take measurements without needing a direct response from your child. 

 

Conditions that we check for at an early age are:

 

 

 

 

 

Children 19 and under are covered by OHIP for an eye exam every year and any emergencies in between. We look forward to meeting you and your family at your next eye exam.
