OHIP Coverage

As of November 1st , 2004, routine eye examinations provided by either an optometrist or physician, for patients aged 20 to 64 are no longer covered by OHIP. Please call our Oakville optometry practice to find out what the current fees are for non-OHIP covered services.

Children, aged 0 to 19 years, and seniors, aged 65 and older, remain OHIP covered for a complete eye examination once over a 12 month period.

People aged 20 to 64 are OHIP covered with specific eye conditions such as glaucoma, cataracts, amblyopia, strabismus, visual field defects, retinal disease, corneal disease and certain medical conditions like diabetes. Please call our office if you have any questions about OHIP coverage.

Many Ontario insurance companies have added eye examinations to their coverage. It is recommended that you contact your Benefits Provider to inquire about coverage through your own insurance plan.
