Getting our Children's Sight Checked Before School Starts

loblaws eye check
With school starting soon, we have been focusing on getting back-to-school gear ready. This is also a good time to take children over 6-months of age for a yearly eye examination that is covered by OHIP. Success at school depends on how much children can comfortably see the blackboard and their books without squinting or rubbing their eyes. For some children, eyeglasses can mean the difference between thriving at school and falling behind.

Eye examinations and Eyes cream shades

It is recommend by paediatricians to do an annual eye exam for our children, and it is a good idea to put this on the "back to school" checklist.  Healthy eyes are an important part of children's development.  Most optometrists check and do routine yearly exams for children over the age of 3, as soon as they can recognize pictures and tell.

According to the IRIS optometrists, since the provincial health plan covers eye examination for children they recommend us to take our children young as one for an annual eye examination until they are twenty years; after 20 years it is recommended every 1 to 2 years.   

It is also important for us, as parents to make sure our children's eyes are protected from UVA and UVB rays at an early age.  Eyes cream shades has a cute quality collection of shades for children over the age of 6 months.

This Sporty Gradient "Blueberry Ice" sunglasses will look cool on both girls and boys.  Children will enjoy wearing this pair of sunglasses, which has a blue to clear gradient frame and light blue polycarbonate lenses.  The light and thin shatter resistant lens is perfect for young children.
Children will enjoy wearing these cool shades without a fuss because of its comfort.
I like the new sizing chart on their site, very helpful in making a decision when we get shades for children. Eyes cream shades has joined Bright Sky UV, to protect the entire family from harmful UV rays with their collection of sun wear made with Pro Tek fabric.
