For Children

Durable and Lightweight Kids Glasses in Calgary

Are you looking for eyewear for children in Calgary? At Eye Health Centres, we love providing eyewear in Calgary and Regina for our young patients. Please visit us! We will be happy to educate you on the unique needs of children’s eye care.

Clear Vision Is Essential to a Child’s Development

Children need clear, properly structured vision to fully develop their potential. 80% of everything a child learns in their first 12 years comes through their eyes.

We Love Kids

Children Have Specific Needs, and Their Parents Do Too!

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.

Essilor Junior: Tailored to Meet the Needs of Kids

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:

Digital Eye Strain Affects Children Too!

Digital eye strain is a growing concern as children head back to school. 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 are encouraging parents to help protect their children from the effects of digital eye strain.

UV and Blue Light Protection for Kids!

Crizal Kids UV™ lenses offer protection from bright reflections, glare, and UV which can cause irritation, eye strain, discomfort, and damage to developing eyes. Made from impact-resistant material, these lenses are durable and lightweight. Plus, Crizal® Prevencia™ Kids lenses offer additional protection from harmful blue-violet light from digital devices.
