Set Your Children Up For Success
Vision plays a critical role in the development of young people and is connected to many factors that influence their quality of life. At Henderson Vision Centre, we believe in providing the same level of service for children during eye exams as we do for everyone else.
80% of what children learn in school is presented visually. As such, children’s eye care is essential for ensuring that they can learn and grow effectively. Preventing vision problems prevents challenges related to school performance, socializing, and emotional well-being.
The Manitoba Association of optometrists (MAO) strongly recommends that parents schedule annual eye exams for their children. As children grow into adults, their bodies change rapidly and their eyes undergo significant changes. Annual eye exams ensure that any problems are identified and treated as quickly as possible.
Manitoba Health provides coverage for bi-annual children’s eye exams.
