360 Eyecare – Metro is happy to launch the Eye See Eye Learn program as a program made for Junior Kindergarten Students or children about to go into Junior Kindergarten. The students or children that are eligible for the Eye See Eye Learn program need to be seen by one of our 360 Eyecare – Metro participating optometrist. Remember, children and young students under the age of 19 are covered by OHIP for an eye exam once every 12 months. Once your child has the exam at 360 Eyecare – Metro Eye you can choose a frame from the OGI Kids line and Nikon will fill the prescription at NO COST to the family. The finished glasses will take an average of 7-10 days for delivery. OGI frames are high quality, fashionable frames all with a 1 year manufacturers defect warranty. Any of the OGI Kids frames are eligible for the program. The kids frame gallery can be found at www.ogieyewear.com.
Nikon Lens wear provides the lenses for all the Eye See Eye Learn program glasses that is available with 360 Eyecare – Metro. The lenses that are provided are a polycarbonate material with an anti-reflective coating and come with a 2 year warranty. The program offers lenses at no cost with restrictions to prescriptions of exceeding +8.00 dioptres to -10.00 dioptres along with max cylinder amount of -4.00. Additional options such as Transitions and or progressive type of lenses are not covered under the Eye See Eye Learn program even when you child is prescribed to wear them.
The Eye See Eye Learn program was developed to raise awareness among parents of the importance of having their children’s eyes checked upon starting school. Each year thousands of children start school without ever having an eye exam
and struggle throughout the academic year to be able to see clearly. At 360 Eyecare – Metro we support the care for each patient regardless of their vision needs.
Children whom are unable to visually focus on a picture or follow words in a book may struggle to achieve their full learning potential with a binocular vision issue. Vision problems impact their hand-eye coordination for physical activities and more over impact their social development. 80 % of all child’s learning development comes directly through vision. Come visit us for a covered eye exam and learn if your child is a candidate for free eye glasses from 360 Eyecare – Metro through participation of Eye See Eye Learn Program!
