FREE PRESCRIPTION EYEGLASSES FOR JK STUDENTS

If we could all see the world through the eyes of a child we would appreciate more of the simpler things in life. It is also safe to say that every child’s vision deserves to be the best it can be! Did you know it is never too soon to bring your child in for an eye examination? In fact, if ca
If we could all see the world through the eyes of a child we would appreciate more of the simpler things in life. It is also safe to say that every child’s vision deserves to be the best it can be!
 
Did you know it is never too soon to bring your child in for an eye examination? In fact, if caught early enough, some eye conditions are correctable with the proper treatment.
 
Now that everyone is back to school, keep in mind that 80% of what we learn is through our sense of sight. And although the elementary schools offer a ‘screening’ test of your child’s vision, it is not done by a licensed optometrist. Plus they charge $15 for this service, not covered by OHIP, because an eye doctor is not performing the examination.
 
However, at Optometry On Bronte you can feel confident that your child’s eye health is their top priority. Their team of qualified professionals are passionate about eye care for the young and the young at heart. With 4 optometrists and 3 optometric assistants your vision care is in expert hands.
 
They are so proud to be participating in the provincial government’s program for JK children. Simply put, with an OHIP covered eye exam your child will receive a FREE pair of prescription eyeglasses valued at $250 or more. This complimentary eyewear is part of the “Eye See…Eye Learn” program.
 
Plus, since October is ‘Eye Health Month’, Optometry On Bronte has a lot of exciting news to share!
 
First, they welcome everyone to join them for ‘World Sight Day Challenge’ on October 13th. There will be a bake sale and raffle prizes such as a Kate Spade and Ray- Ban prize pack. They will also be raffling off a pair of Serengeti sunglasses.
 
This fundraiser is in support of the ‘Optometry Giving Sight’ charity that assists the over 600 million people who are blind or visually impaired because they do not have access to eye care. A portion of every exam fee on October 13th will be donated to that cause.
 
Also, for every pair of eyeglasses sold in October, Optometry On Bronte will donate a pair of eyeglasses to “Optometry Giving Sight”.
 
Please note there is always a doctor on staff for walk-ins or emergencies as well….Dr. Ritu Bahl, Dr. Kelly Gallagher, Dr. Sandro Ho or Dr. Darrene Nguyen.
