At True North Optometry, we recommend your child's first eye exam occur before their first birthday, and then annually until the age of 19. With every child, we strive to support them with their visual development and help them meet the visual demands of the world around them.
Dr. Budac practices optometry from a behavioural approach. During your child’s eye exam, Dr. Budac will not only look for nearsightedness (myopia), farsightedness (hyperopia), an eye turn (strabismus), lazy eye (amblyopia) and other ocular pathologies, but also assess your child’s eye movement (tracking) skills, ability to use their eyes together (binocularity), ability to keep their eyes aligned as they move inwards (convergence), capacity to process visual information, and ability to change focus from one object to another.
We strive to make every child eye exam an enjoyable and informative experience. You will be left with a thorough evaluation of your child’s visual system as well as information on how to protect and enhance their vision as they continue to grow and develop.Book an Appointment
