OHIP covers patients 19 years of age and younger, and patients 65 years and older once every 12 months for a basic eye exam.

A full eye exam includes comprehensive vision testing to determine your current prescription for glasses, and a thorough eye health check including diagnostic testing for glaucoma, cataracts, and macular degeneration.

Although you might have a clear vision, only a complete and regular eye exam can guarantee the health of your eyes.
Continuous care of our contact lens patients is to ensure patients are wearing the best contact lens for their specific needs and ocular health. It is the policy of our office that all contact lens wearers have an annual eye examination to ensure the continued use of contact lenses is not compromising the health of your eyes.
With all the latest advancements in contact lens technology, the majority of refractive errors such as nearsightedness, farsightedness, astigmatism and presbyopia can be corrected with contact lenses.

The vast majority of people requiring vision correction can wear contact lenses without experiencing any problems as science provides us with greater options in contact lens wear. It is important to discuss the matter fully with your optometrist. Your overall vision problems, the health of your eyes, and your specific visual needs and motivations will be considered.
