Schedule your child's first eye exam at six months of age, followed by exams at age 3 and before starting kindergarten. After that, annual eye exams are recommended.
A typical pediatric eye examination at Easy Blink Optometry takes approximately 30 to 45 minutes, depending on the child's age and specific needs.
Our optometrists assess your child's vision, eye alignment, and overall eye health using age-appropriate tests and games to make the experience engaging.
Explain the purpose of the exam and assure your child that it won't hurt. Encourage them to ask questions during the appointment.
At Easy Blink Optometry, we accept Alberta Health coverage for pediatric eye exams. Alberta Health coverage typically includes essential eye care services, such as those related to pediatric eye exams. However, the extent of your insurance coverage may vary depending on your individual policy. We recommend contacting your insurance provider or Alberta Health directly to confirm the specific details of your coverage for pediatric eye exams. Our team is also available to help guide you through the process and answer any questions you may have.
