THE VISION SCREENING DOES NOT REPLACE REGULAR COMPREHENSIVE EYE EXAMS WITH AN OPTOMETRIST.

 

These screenings are provided in accordance with the Ontario Public Health Standards established by the Ontario Ministry of Health.  Personal and personal health information collected during the screenings will be used for the purposes of delivering, administering and managing screening services, and for statistical purposes, as provided under Section 5 and 7 of the Health Protection and Promotion Act (as amended) and the Ontario Public Health Standards (2018).  Information may be used by and shared among authorized Ottawa Public Health employees and learners who provide vision screening services.  Questions concerning the vision screenings, the collection and use of personal and personal health information or the exclusion of your child from the vision screening can be forwarded to the Supervisor of the Vision Screening Program, Ottawa Public Health, 400-1580 Merivale Rd., Ottawa, ON, tel.: 613-580-2424, ext. 26376.
