Your child’s ability to see clearly plays a crucial role in their early education. If your child has vision problems that go undetected, they are often misdiagnosed as learning disabilities. Untreated, they can eventually become irreversible.
Sherwood Park Eye Centre offers an individualized program of eye exercises and other methods that can treat non-refractive vision problems such as eye alignment and lazy eye.
Early detection is critical to your child’s development, and school vision screenings will not uncover serious eye-health and vision disorders the way a comprehensive eye exam conducted by a trained optometrist can. If you have questions about when your child’s eyes should be examined, please contact us.
Knowing the expected milestones of your baby's vision development during their first year of life can ensure your child is seeing properly and enjoying their world to the fullest. Sherwood Park Eye Centre can help you keep track of that development for optimal eye health.

Talk to our doctors to learn more.
