20/20 isn't Everything!
Over 60% of Canadian parents feel they would know if their child was having issue with vision.
Children won’t tell you they can’t see!
Children with poor vision often find it hard to focus on their work, and may be misdiagnosed as having a learning or bad behavior
1 in 6 children have some form of a vision condition, but only 14% of Canadian children have had their eyes comprehensively examined by age 6.
A visual experiment where common visual problems known to affect learning in kids are simulated in 4 adult teachers, and their experience and reaction are discussed. All children should have their eyes comprehensively examined by a Doctor of Optometry to ensure optimal functioning and health. Many common visual conditions can be missed on a 'school screening' and will only be found during a comprehensive eye examination.

The Ontario Association of Optometrists currently recommends the first eye exam to be at 6 months of age and then again at 3 years. It is best to have a yearly exam for those 5 years of age and older to make sure no visual deficits are holding back the child from success in school.
As you may be aware OHIP benefits currently include yearly eye exams for patients 0-19 as well as 65 and older. Patients falling in the 20-64 year old range are also covered with certain conditions including diabetes. As well as every two years when they are insured by the Ontario Disability Support Program (ODSP) or Ontario Works (OW).
