Back-to-School is nearly here and Mom’s checklist is at full capacity. But some must-do’s are more important than others. For example, a visit to the optometrist for your child’s annual eye exam. Not only is it top priority to ensure that your child can read the blackboard, it’s important because eye health is connected to overall health! An optometrist gets a close-up look at the inside of the eye, including blood vessels, veins and nerves, helping to prevent serious conditions like cancer and diabetes.
Alberta Health covers the full cost of eye exams for children ages 0-18 and adults 65+. Urgent or medically necessary visits to an optometrist are covered for everyone in the province. So what are you waiting for? Book an appointment with an Alberta optometrist today.
