Free & Fun Kid's Eye Exams In Downtown Calgary

Your child’s vision is constantly changing and developing as they learn and grow. If your child has a short attention span, frequently rubs, squints and blinks their eyes, complains of headaches or reads or watches TV with what they’re trying to see close to their face – these are all signs of vision issues in children. Often, young children aren’t able to communicate if they are having vision problems or if their sight is hindering their ability to learn and thrive at school.

Consistent kid’s eye exams, from doctors experienced in paediatric optometry, are essential to the development of your child and their education. Doctors of Optometry Canada recommend that infants have their first eye exam at 6 months old and continue to receive them annually after that.  At Core Eye Care we make kid’s eye exams as fun as possible while giving your child the thorough and comprehensive care they deserve.

What to expect during a Kid's or Senior's Eye Exam:

  • Questions about patient’s lifestyle
  • Family health history & past medical or vision issues
  • Questions about medications, as some medications can affect the eyes
  • Detailed analysis of the visual acuity of each eye, individually, together and with corrective lenses
  • Assessment of depth perception, colour and eye coordination
  • Detailed assessment of the health of the eye
  • Measuring prescription at distance, intermediate and near (generating a spectacle and/or contact lens prescription)
  • 200 degree retinal photo with the Optomap Retinal Camera
  • Recommendations for future eye care based on patient’s history and data gathered from the exam

Expert Kid’s & Senior's Eye Exams From Experienced Professionals

It’s critical that we obtain an accurate measurement of your child’s vision so you leave our office with a solution that helps your child learn and grow with optimal eye health. To ensure your child gets the personalized recommendations they need, our doctors take the time to understand your child, asking them and you detailed questions in order to get an accurate reading of their eye health and visual acuity. Our kid’s eye exams last about 30 minutes. During the exam, our doctors complete a comprehensive assessment of your child’s sight, visual coordination, depth perception and screen for any eye health issues. You will walk away with recommendations tailored to your child’s unique needs and answers to any questions you may have.
