Eye Exams & Kids Glasses in Kingston

Importance of good fitting glasses and difficulty fitting kids & babies

Babies and Kids Glasses available at STR8eyes Vision Care the best place for Children Frames.

We often think of children as small adults therefore only needing smaller adult size glasses. However most of the time this is not the case. Children have smaller pupillary measurements and minimal nose bridge. There are a lot of points that need to be taken into accounts in order to have proper fitting glasses.  Proper fitting glasses will not only fix a visual deficiency but will aid in developing the most visual potential that a child can get. This will ultimately enhance the child's live and enhance his/her performance at school and at any sport.  Visit our location on Gardiners Road for Kids glasses, children frames or to book your next eye exam in Kingston.  We also serve Gananoque.

Children’s Eye Health

As a parent, you may wonder whether your pre-schooler has a vision  problem or when a first eye exam should be scheduled.  Eye exams for  children are extremely important. Experts say 5 to 10% of pre-schoolers  and 25% of school-aged children have vision problems. Early detection of  a child's vision problem is crucial because, if left untreated, some  childhood vision issues can cause permanent vision loss. 


When should kids have their eyes examined?

According to the Ontario Doctors of Optometry the following guidline  was developed about when your child should have their eyes checked:   

  • Infants: between 6-9 months of age 
  • Toddlers: at least 1 eye exam between the ages of 2 to 5 
  • School age: annual comprehensive eye exams by an Optometrist 

80% of a child's learning is obtained through vision.Vision occurs in  partnership with the brain and eyes. Children who struggle with reading  or remain on task may have an undiagnosed vision problem. Children only  see the world through their eyes so have no idea if what they are seeing  is clear or not. In a recent study 61% of Canadian parents mistakenly  believe they would know if their child was having difficulty with their  eyesight. Which is why it is so important to have annual eye exam. In  the province of Ontario: Annual Routine Eye exams for children up to  the age of 19 are covered by OHIP.   
Early eye exams also are important because children need the following basic visual skills for learning:  

  • Near vision
  • Distance vision
  • Eye teaming (binocularity) skills
  • Eye movement skills
  • Focusing skills
  • Peripheral awareness
  • Eye/hand coordination

    It's common knowledge that kids glasses should be fashionable and lightweight. But most importantly, they have to be durable!  Our durable glasses come in a variety of sizes and colours.
