Vision Screening vs. Comprehensive Eye Exam

Some children will have vision screening done at their school or with their family doctor. These tests are helpful at identifying children who are struggling to see an eye chart. However, this is not a comprehensive exam and some major components like determining if glasses are needed, testing eye alignment, ocular health, colour vision, etc can only be examined at a full eye exam. If your child has passed vision screening, it is important to understand that 20/20 vision does not always mean healthy eyes. For more information click here.
