Eye See…Eye Learn
How Well Can Our Children See?
Our school board encourages all Junior Kindergarten students to have a comprehensive eye exam this year through Eye See…Eye Learn program– a FREE childhood health awareness program.
Fact: One in six children has a vision problem but too often children don’t have a comprehensive eye exam before starting school.
Fact: Young children don’t know what normal vision is supposed to look like and seldom complain to their parents. Some show no signs of a problem at all.
Your current JK students are eligible for a comprehensive eye exam (covered by your child’s health card), and if required, one FREE pair of brand new high quality eyeglasses until June 30, 2012. There is no cost to participate. Children registering for JK for September can pre-book their exams now to take place after July 1, 2012.
All children up to 19 years of age are eligible for an annual OHIP-insured eye exam by an optometrist. Simply present the child’s health card at the time of the exam.

The Eye See…Eye Learn program is funded in part by the Government of Ontario.
