Are you looking for eyewear for children in Calgary? At Eye Health Centres, we love providing kids’ glasses in Calgary and Regina. Please visit us! We will be happy to educate you on the unique needs of children’s eye care.
Children need clear, properly structured vision to develop their potential fully. Approximately 80% of everything a child learns in their first 12 years comes through their eyes. This is why taking your child for annual eye exams is critical to ensure their eyes are in good health and have an accurate prescription if needed.
We recommend taking your child to see an eye doctor once they reach six months of age. At this age, the doctor will examine the eyes to ensure good health and proper eye coordination.
Afterwards, the next visit should be once they begin school at age three. At this point, regular visits are encouraged each year. See one of our experienced doctors; our staff will guide you through the visit from the start of the exam to the finish, which may include selecting one of the many kids’ glasses in our Calgary or Regina-based clinics.
Children are very active. Indoors, they spend time doing homework, arts and crafts, watching television or playing board games or video games. Outdoors, they play at the park or practice sports. Children need eyeglasses specifically designed for their lifestyle, allowing them to engage in activities safely and comfortably favouring their development. Most parents must budget while their child's eyeglass prescription changes often.
We do it all to make children’s vision better – from routine eye care examinations to prescribing the right lenses, we will help. Take a look at why we recommend our Essilor Junior package for your child’s glasses:

Digital eye strain is a growing concern as children head back to school. A new survey reveals Alberta parents could do more to protect their children.
In addition to paper, pencils and binders, many back to school lists are starting to include laptops, tablets, and other electronics. As children spend more time on digital devices at home and in the classroom, optometrists encourage parents to help protect their children from the effects of digital eye strain.
Crizal Kids UV™ lenses offer protection from bright reflections, glare, and UV, which can cause irritation, eye strain, discomfort, and damage to developing eyes. These lenses are made from impact-resistant material, making them durable and lightweight. Plus, Crizal® Prevencia™ Kids lenses offer additional protection from harmful blue-violet light from digital devices.
