Eye care for people with special needs

People with cognitive and physical disabilities are more likely to have vision problems. These problems often go unnoticed and can prevent the individual from reaching their full potential.

An eye examination especially for people with special needs can help to detect and correct vision problems. It can also help parents, teachers and other caregivers better understand how the individual sees.

The Special Needs Clinic provides modified eye examinations for people of all ages with physical or cognitive disabilities. Appointments for adults are scheduled separately from the children's clinic.
