Patients aged 0 – 19 years old & Seniors aged 65 years and above
Patients aged 0 to 19 years old and 65+ years are covered by OHIP for a routine eye examination once every 12 months plus any follow-up assessments that may be required.
Please visit Ontario Ministry of Health and Long-term Care for more information: http://www.health.gov.on.ca/en/public/publications/ohip/eyecare.aspx
Patients aged 20 – 64
Routine eye exams for patients aged 20 to 64 are not covered by OHIP unless they have one of the following medical conditions: diabetes, glaucoma, cataract, retinal disease, amblyopia, visual field defects, corneal disease, strabismus, recurrent uveitis or optic pathway disease.
For those patients uninsured by OHIP coverage, most third party providers have some form of vision benefits. Please ask our staff if you have any questions.
