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.
