Frequently Asked Questions

Can children see an optometrist in Edmonton?

Yes, children can see an optometrist in Edmonton. Optometrists are trained to diagnose and treat vision problems and eye diseases in people of all ages, including children. They can perform eye exams, prescribe glasses or contact lenses, and detect and manage conditions such as amblyopia (lazy eye), strabismus (crossed eyes), and myopia (nearsightedness). It’s important to have regular eye exams for children because it helps us catch any potential vision problems early on. If we catch the problem early, we can do things to help prevent or reduce the severity of vision loss.
