a-b-See™ Campaign

One in five children has a vision disorder. Not knowing any differently, many of these children accept poor vision and other eye problems as normal. If left unchecked, serious long-term effects can result. 

With the support of Essilor Canada through the Essilor Vision Foundation, BCAO has created the a-b-See™ campaign to help identify these children early and raise awareness among parents, teachers and children themselves. 

Why? Because good vision and eye health are critical to a child’s development. More than 80 per cent of a child’s learning is based on vision.

The a-b-See™ campaign is geared towards preschool-age children. Identifying eye health issues at this age is critical, as they can begin to affect children’s academic and social development.

The campaign includes information for parents, resources for teachers and fun, interactive games for kids. Use the buttons to the right to access these materials.

As part of a-b-See™, BCAO distributes complimentary a-b-See™ Kits to preschools and child-care centres. The kits contain important information on common eye diseases and disorders, and warning signs for both teachers and parents. The kit includes activity sheets and materials for the kids.
