Most kids rely on vision for 80% of their learning. And we don’t just mean learning in the classroom. Vision has a huge impact on early developmental milestones too, like walking and talking.
You want your kids to learn, progress, and thrive. With regular eye exams, we can detect the eye issues that sometimes develop in children, even before they have the words to tell you about them. See & Be Seen Eyecare uses the latest non-invasive equipment to make your child’s eye health exam fun and educational.
The Canadian Association of Optometrists recommends that infants have their first eye exam at six months old. By the time a child is six months old, we can usually diagnose “crossed eyes” and “lazy eyes,” both of which need treatment.
Our doctors can conduct children’s eye exams even if your kids haven’t learned their numbers or alphabet yet. We use pictures, shapes, and other child-friendly ways to assess their eye health.
After their first eye exam, the Canadian Association of Optometrists recommends kids have their eyes checked every year. It’s particularly important to have your child’s eyes examined between the ages of one and two because this period is critical for the development of hand-eye coordination and depth perception.
You can help build your child’s visual development with:
An eye exam should be part of your back-to-school routine every year. Kids may not notice vision issues, but they can have a huge impact on their learning. By bringing your child in every year, you’re helping make sure they have everything they need to do their best in school.
School-aged kids may develop nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism, all of which require treatment.
Vision problems can be hard to detect, especially because kids may not even realize they’re not seeing well. Keep an eye out for these symptoms, as they may indicate that your child has a vision problem.
If these symptoms sound familiar, book an appointment for your child today.

All the rave reviews about this place are spot on. Absolutely top notch customer service, friendly staff, and welcoming atmosphere. I never thought I’d ever enjoy going to the Optometrist this much.
All the staff were excellent at ensuring everything was explained well and with utmost professionalism and courtesy. Every detail of my entire visit was smooth and efficient.
Tried out See & Be Seen after seeing some great reviews online, and they most definitely lived up to the hype! Easy to get to location in Liberty Village, very cool shop interior, great range of eyewear, and an awesome bunch of staff to boot! Their customer service was top notch from the minute I booked my appointment, right up until walking out the door with some fresh new glasses.
This was my first in-depth eye exam, and Dr. Patel and his team make the process very easy and interesting to help you understand all about the health of your eyes. If you’re considering getting a check-up or in need of new glasses, 100% pick See & Be Seen.
I can’t even begin to express my love and admiration for the team at See & Be Seen Eyecare. Incredible, above and beyond service. Exceptionally friendly and they IMMEDIATELY made me feel like family. Dr. Patel blew me with his friendly and helpful personality and the staff are just so bubbly and accommodating. I feel seriously blessed to have found this team. Thank you!!
The best Optometrist I have ever seen, the entire staff is extremely warm and welcoming. They use high quality lenses, and cary the best fashions for frames. The atmosphere is also warm and welcoming unlike other old fashioned stark white clinics. 100% would recommend and visit again! Plus cool eyeball pictures!
Unreal!!!! You need to go here!!! Best service and professionalism I have ever had! The entire experience was amazing from start to finish!!! I came across the city for this office due to the amazing reviews on Yelp and I could not be more thankful for social media because I would have never found this gem without it!!! Thanks Dr. Patel and staff!!!! My eyes will never be the same!!
I went to See & Be Seen by chance the first time around. I was thrilled with the level of customer service I received and the welcoming staff. From the wonderful receptionist who immediately made me feel like a friend to Dr. Patel who is very caring to the assistance i received in finding the best glasses possible. I couldn’t imagine having a better experience.
