|Description & Services|
|Description||Vision services offered by the Region of Peel.
A doctor called an optometrist will check your child's eyes. The optometrist will complete:
*General vision testing in both eyes.
*Eye muscle testing.
*Eye coordination testing.
A general health assessment of the front and back of the eyes.
If needed, the optometrist will write a prescription for glasses for your child.
Having your child’s eyes checked by an optometrist is the best way to ensure good eye health.
Your child may have taken part in a vision screening program at school. Vision screenings are not the same as an eye exam done by an optometrist
The vision screening is a short series of tests that are done to identify children in need of eye exams. Screenings can't detect childhood eye diseases or vision problems.
Peel Public Health currently does not offer vision screening in schools.
Please visit the Region of Peel website for further information.
