Children's Eye Exams

Early eye examinations ensure your child’s visual development is on track, aiding their academic performance and overall well-being. At Durham Vision Care, we evaluate children’s eyes as early as 6 months old, aligning with Ontario’s optometric guidelines. Our comprehensive assessments are designed to detect vision problems and eye conditions in a child-friendly and comforting environment. Delve into more eye health information on our Eye Health page.
