Your baby should receive their first eye exam between six and nine months of age. Many vision problems can be detected at this stage and the earlier a condition is caught, the higher the chance of correction. If vision problems go undetected, young children may not even realize that anything is wrong because they assume that everyone sees the same way they do. There is Alberta Health coverage towards annual eye exams for children until their 19th birthday.

At the Real Canadian Superstore, you can pick up the cake, the cake platter, the party platter, the party decorations, the party favors, and maybe even a party outfit for yourself because at these prices, it doesn’t need to be your birthday to treat yourself! Not just a store. Superstore.
