BACK-TO-SCHOOL IS ALMOST HERE.
Back to school may look a bit different this year, but from wherever you’re learning we have some good news — kids eye exams are covered by MSP until they are 18 years old! Set your child up for a successful school year knowing they have healthy vision.
- 80% of a child’s learning is based on vision.
- Children can have their first eye exam at 6 months of age.
- Teens and children are exposed to 3 times more UV than adults because they spend more time outside.
- One in five children has a vision disorder. Not knowing any differently, many children accept poor vision and other eye problems as normal. If left unchecked, serious long-term effects can result.
- 85% of children begin school without a proper eye exam!
DID YOU KNOW 80% OF LEARNING IS VISUAL?
Your child’s eyes are special. When they go through school, their eyesight lets them learn and discover – in fact, about 80% of what is taught in schools is presented visually. Being able to see clearly is therefore incredibly important in your child’s overall development. So it’s not surprising that we take your child’s eyesight seriously.
At Eye Etiquette we have a special Junior Glasses package available for children 15 and under, that includes $100’s of dollars of savings and bonuses, and a one-time lens replacement warranty if your child’s prescription changes within 15 months!
According to the Canadian Association of Optometrists, a child may not tell you that he or she has a vision problem because they may think the way they see is the way everyone sees.
13 SIGNS THAT MAY INDICATE A CHILD HAS VISION PROBLEM INCLUDE:
- Frequent eye rubbing or blinking
- Short attention span
- Avoiding reading and other close activities
- Sitting very close to the TV or holding tablets very close
- Frequent headaches
- Covering one eye
- Tilting the head to one side
- Holding reading materials close to the face
- An eye turning in or out
- Seeing double
- Losing place when reading
- Difficulty remembering what they read
- Poor hand-eye coordination

We hope you have a wonderful school year!
