Children’s Eye Exam Schedule
Children need an eye exam once per year between the ages of six and nineteen, according to the Canadian Association of Optometrists. Before the age of six, children should have at least two eye exams: once between six and nine months old and once between two and five years old.
OHIP covers annual eye exams for children. An eye exam every 12 months and any necessary follow-up appointments are covered until age 19.
