A program to detect, diagnose, and treat children with vision problems when they start school (e.g. begin junior kindergarten), so that every child can see and learn to the best of their ability. Participants receive an OHIP-insured eye exam with a participating optometrist, and if prescribed, one complementary pair of glasses.


Age 4 years to 5 years; Junior kindergarten (JK) students
