OHIP Coverage

People between the ages of 0-19 and 65 and over are covered by OHIP for their appointments. Contact lens assessments, vision therapy and some diagnostic tests are not covered by OHIP. Those who have certain eye and medical conditions are covered between the age of 20 and 64, including diabetes, cataracts, glaucoma and macular degeneration, for example. Your optometrist will be able to make the decision if you are eligible for OHIP coverage when they do a full eye examination. Those who are covered under OHIP are eligible for a full eye exam once a year, as well as partial appointments as needed within the year.

Please be aware that if you normally have OHIP coverage, ODSP coverage or OW coverage for your eye exams, we are unable to schedule an appointment for you at this time due to the current Ontario Association of Optometrists job action. You can help by visiting saveeyecare.ca which will let the Government of Ontario know that eye care is important to you and your family.

Our hours of operation have changed as we are currently seeing patients by appointment only for ALL visits (including glasses adjustments, etc). Please contact our office to book an appointment as needed.

We are continuing to follow health and safety guidelines as set out by the College of Optometrists of Ontario and the Government of Ontario.
