Sight for Success Vision Program

Sight for Success

WDGPH is committed to focusing on children’s health. Ocular health is essential to the growth and development, and long-term health outcomes of children in our community. 

The Sight for Success program promotes childhood ocular health by providing a subsidy for glasses (up to $160) to students in WDG (grades 1-12) with identified financial need.

To qualify, student must: 

  • Currently be enrolled full-time at a school in the WDG region; 
  • Complete a comprehensive eye exam; and
  • Meet the financial eligibility

The process to receive the Sight for Success subsidy is as follows:

Step 1: Student completes an OHIP-covered comprehensive eye exam within 6 months.

Step 2: Once the student has an identified need for glasses, the parent/guardian/student can fill out the eligibility form. One form can be completed per family (up to 4 students).

Step 3: A Public Health Nurse will reach out via phone call to discuss eligibility and vision support programs.

Step 4: If the student is deemed eligible, the Public Health Nurse will send confirmation of eligibility to a Sight for Success provider.

Step 5: The student can purchase glasses at the selected provider and receive a subsidy of up to $160. The parent/guardian/student is responsible for any additional cost.
