Help your child see their full potential. When it comes to your child’s vision, what could be more important?

Approximately 1 in 4 school-age children has an undetected vision problem. Children rarely complain of vision problems since they don’t realize that they see the world differently from others.

Our children’s vision programs and our newest eye health mascot, Opie, educate children, parents, teachers and family doctors about the importance of getting children’s eyes examined and provide resources and materials to keep children’s eyes healthy.

Introducing EyeLearn, your new Children’s vision program

The Children’s vision program is now progressing to the new targets and priorities for this year, which include phasing out of the EyeSee…EyeLearn program and launching of the new EyeLearn program.
EyeLearn is scheduled to launch alongside our new mascot Opie and BCDO branded items for participating offices starting in August of 2020, and efforts will be ongoing after that.

Join us!

Be the first to be notified when EyeLearn launches, for updates on the program, and to receive a complimentary shipment of merchandise in late-summer 2020. For more information and to get on the list, please email info@optometrists.bc.ca
