Vision Care for All Ages
Vision care spans all ages, and at Oxford Optometry, we offer comprehensive eye exams for your children to deliver a personalized approach to vision care.
Our goal is to instill good, consistent vision care habits in your children from a young age to preserve their vision and overall health.
Our team at Oxford Optometry is looking forward to helping your children through their visual journey. Contact us to schedule an eye exam for your children today.
Monitoring Visual Development
A comprehensive eye exam has many functions beyond determining a prescription for your children’s new glasses. An eye exam can allow our team to check for refractive errors such as myopia (nearsightedness), hyperopia (farsightedness), and astigmatism.
Early and frequent eye exams can also allow our team to address conditions such as amblyopia (lazy eye) and strabismus while your children are young to prevent future complications.
Early visual development is an important time for your children and contributes to other aspects of their life such as academic performance or reading their favourite book.
When to Schedule an Eye Exam for Your Children
Your child’s vision is ever-changing, so consistently monitoring visual development and changes is essential. The Canadian Association of Optometrists recommends the following exam frequency for children:
- First eye exam between 6 and 9 months
- One eye exam between the ages of 2 and 5
- Yearly between the ages of 6 to 18
Additional eye exams may be recommended by our team depending on your child’s unique visual needs.
What to Expect During the Exam
Our eye exams are all about the details. Beyond determining your children’s unique prescription, we check for visual skills that are essential for learning, movement, and coordination, such as:
- Eye tracking
- Eye-hand coordination
- Colour vision
- Peripheral vision
- Focusing ability
Our team also monitors myopia progression and helps your children navigate and slow its progression. For more information on myopia, please visit our myopia control page.
Preserving Vision from a Young Age
At Oxford Optometry, our goal is to build good vision care habits in your children that they can carry with them through adulthood. Consistency is key and allows our team to familiarize themselves with your children’s visual development.
Contact us to schedule an eye exam for your children—we’re looking forward to welcoming the whole family.

I was very impressed with not only the excellent service from the front desk to all the staff and Doctor. I was also happy to get an appointment to have my eyes checked in just a couple of days. I highly recommend this office!!!
All staff are super friendly! Always a good experience for myself as well as my family!
Dr. Andreasen and staff were absolutely amazing. My eye exam was comfortable and they were able to answer any questions I may have had. I found the perfect frames with the help of Claire and my glasses were ready very quickly! The location is beautiful and everyone made me feel welcome. Would highly recommend
Everything top touch. We were treated very professionally.
Our visit was very informative. Dr. Jennifer acted in truly professional manner explaining everything each step of the consultation. She was in no rush to finish the eye examination but took the time and effort to answer all our concerns. My husband and I were informed of all our options and the next steps we need to take.
First visit to the office was great, staff was helpful, walked me through the process for each test, and look forward to my follow up.
Dr. Nguyen is so great with kids! She has seen my five year old daughter twice now and we’ve had two great experiences. She is great at keeping my daughters attention and making eye exams fun 🙂
Dr Sarah & staff do an amazing job explaining things Best Optometrist in Woodstock
Wonderful service all round. Everyone was helpful and took the time to explain every step of the process, from examination to selecting the right glasses/lenses for me.
Jessica was/is FANTASTIC with my kids!!! She made the experience for my son so much fun!
Dr. Sarah is always so enthusiastic and encouraging. My imaging was good and my eyesight has not really changed. She was so happy and congratulated me. I love having such an outgoing and enthusiastic doctor! I look forward to having an appointment every time!
Service was very friendly as always and so efficient. I feel confident in their care. Technician helping me with selecting eye glasses was very knowledgeable and really helped me to decide on the best ones for me
My experience was exceptional from when I first made my appointment and right through until I received my glasses. Thanks to all involved in my care.
Sarah is a very caring doctor. She goes above and beyond what one would expect from an exceptional optometrist. When she was unable to get me in to see my ophthalmologist she and her receptionist ensured I got the best care. I had an appointment at the Ivey Eye Institute the next day! Thank you!
Our experience with this office has been absolutely amazing!!
