FAQs

What should I bring with me to my eye appointment?

Please bring your current eyeglasses. If you have contact lenses, wear them to your exam. Bring a list of your medications. Dilating drops are used routinely and sunglasses are a necessity. Please bring a driver if needed.

Is my examination covered under OHIP?

Children aged 0-19 years of age: one full eye exam annually

20-64 years of age: not covered under OHIP – many third parties cover eye examinations

Seniors 65 and older: one full eye exam annually

Medically covered eye examinations: one full eye exam annually if you are diagnosed with cataracts, glaucoma, retinal or corneal disease, visual field defects, strabismus, amblyopia, or diabetes

At what age should my children start having eye examinations and how often?

It’s never too late to have your first eye exam! We recommend all children have their first eye exam by 1 year of age. Appointments are then recommended every 1-2 years depending on advice of their optometrist.

How much is an eye examination and are there any other fees?

A full eye examination is $110. If you are a contact lens wearer, the fee is $130. OCT digital scans, which include a retinal photograph, are $40. Automated peripheral visual fields are $45 if you are 20-64 years of age. Contact lens appointments are not covered by OHIP.

 

Every day optometrists take pride in helping our patients see clearly and preventing blindness. But today we need your help.

For over 30 years, the Ontario government has refused to formally negotiate with optometrists.

In 1989, the Ontario government paid $39.15 for an eye exam.

In 2021, 32 years later, they pay an average of $44.65.

This amount does not come close to covering the cost (including rent, staff, utilities, equipment, taxes and supplies) to provide an eye exam.

This is not sustainable and yet the Ontario government continues to ignore your care.

They have left optometrists with no choice. If they do not prioritize eye care, as of September 1, 2021, access to eye care for millions of Ontarians will end.
