Come get your car washed by our staff (by donation) as we raise funds for Optometry Giving Sight
Optometry Giving Sight is the only global fundraising initiative that specifically targets the prevention of blindness and impaired vision due to uncorrected refractive error – simply the need for an eye exam and a pair of glasses. More than 600 million people around the world are blind or vision impaired because they do not have access to the eye examination and glasses they need. Your donations allow Optometry Giving Sight to fund the solution by supporting programs that:
- Train – local eye care professionals and;
- Establish – vision centres for sustainability to;
- Deliver – eye care and low cost glasses.

Eye See… Eye Learn Program 2016
Do you have a child born in 2012 who is starting Junior Kindergarten this September? If so, start them off on the right foot with an eye-exam! Your child may qualify for a free pair of glasses through the Eye See…Eye Learn Program. Children 19 years of age or younger in Ontario are eligible for an annual eye exam covered under OHIP.
The Ontario Association of Optometrists (OAO) recognizes the important link between eye health and learning, and recommends comprehensive eye examinations for all children entering kindergarten. The Eye See…Eye Learn program will help make sure our kindergarten students get the best start to learning. For more information about the program you can call our office, or consult http://www.optom.on.ca/OAO/ESEL/AboutESEL.aspx. Call our office to book an appointment!

Eye Foods FOR SALE
We have a number of copies of the fantastic book, EYE FOODS at our clinic. Written by two Canadian optometrists, this book is filled with great information and an approach to healthy eating that supports good eye health over the years! This is a great resource for anyone interested in general health and especially EYE health – and would be particularly important to read for anyone diagnosed with, or who has a family member with macular degeneration. Be sure to check out the display copy when you are at the clinic!
