Children’s eye exams are covered by Manitoba Health for children under 19.

Here are 5 great reasons to have your child's eyes checked before school starts in September.

  1. Learning is 80% visual. Eye exams before school starts means your child will be ready for optimal learning. 
  2. Undiagnosed prescription. Could your child's behavioral or academic performance be due to visual problems previously undiagnosed? 
  3. Even if your child does wear glasses, make sure the prescription is current and meeting your child's needs, for academic and sports performance. 
  4. As stated above, coverage of eye exams is available through Manitoba Health.
  5. Children's eyes can change significantly while they are growing therefore they should have their eyes examined annually through their school years.
