Ensuring your child has good vision is crucial to successful learning and overall healthy development. Therefore, Optical Illusions participates in Eye See…Eye Learn®, providing comprehensive eye exams to junior kindergarten students in Waterloo Region.
Eye exams are covered under provincial health insurance (or OHIP) when you show your child’s health card. This means that there is no out-of-pocket cost for the eye exam. If the child requires a pair of glasses, they will receive a free pair donated by Nikon Lenswear, OGI and your participating Doctor of Optometry. The value of the glasses is estimated over $250.
The Eye See...Eye Learn® program was developed to raise awareness among parents of the importance of having their children's eyes checked when starting school. Each year, thousands of children start school without ever having an eye exam.
