Your child's vision is important to you. It's important to us, too!

In addition to an assessment of eyesight and eye health, at InSight Optometry & Occupational Therapy a comprehensive eye exam includes:

•  eye movement skills •  visual thinking skills like: - depth perception
•  focusing ability
- hand-eye coordination
•  eye alignment
- visual spatial skills

For school-age children it's important to rule out any vision problems that may impede performance at school, in sports, or at music lessons.

Exams include advice on proper study habits to increase performance and avoid vision problems.

Your child does not need to read or even speak to have an eye exam.

For babies and toddlers a vision exam should be done early as eye health concerns and vision problems such as strabismus and amblyopia can be detected early and managed to avoid a lifetime of vision loss.

We recommend that all children have their eyes checked by 6 months of age and yearly thereafter .

What you should know before you arrive:

Children's exams usually take 30 minutes and run more smoothly with only one child in the room with the parent.
Consider your child's energy levels when scheduling appointments to ensure they're at their most alert and content at exam time.
To ensure that the inner eye is healthy, we sometimes use dilating eye drops. Most children handle this with minimal fuss.
Your child's BC Care Card covers a portion of the professional fees.
We offer complimentary referral for medical consults.
