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.
