The Coalition Avenir Quebec wants young people to be able to see clearly now.

The party says it will reimburse up to $250 every two years for anyone 17 or under who needs glasses or contact lenses.

Currently, Quebec's health insurance board covers the cost of an eye exam for youngsters but not the purchase of eyewear.

Coalition Leader Francois Legault made the promise in eastern Quebec today on Day 8 of the provincial election campaign and said good vision is essential to success in school.
