Eye See...Eye Learn®

An awareness program about the importance of healthy vision 

Eye See...Eye Learn® is an awareness program designed to educate teachers, children, and parents/guardians of the importance of identifying and treating vision problems early so that children have a better chance to learn and develop. With Fribbit as their mascot, Eye See...Eye Learn® is an informative and engaging program. 

We encourage all parents and guardians to ensure their child(ren) have had a comprehensive eye examination before they begin school. 80% of learning is visual and many children are unable to identify whether they have a vision problem due to not knowing what "normal" vision is. Comprehensive eye exams help to ensure children have the best vision possible to learn and develop to their full potential.

Saskatchewan Health covers the cost of annual eye exams for all children under the age of 18
