Non-OHIP Covered Examinations

Many individuals have coverage through their own personal insurance plans. Our office works with several insurance companies, which allow us to submit a claim, on your behalf, once you have had your eye examination. We cannot access whether you are due for your exam or your glasses (The Privacy Act does not allow us that information) but we can submit for you. Presently, the insurance companies reimburse you, so we ask that pay for your exam, but we do all the paperwork!

If you are eligible, coverage may also be provided by:

  • Ontario Works
  • Ontario Disability Act
  • Community and Social Services (MCSS)
  • Veteran Affairs
  • Native Affairs

If you feel that you may be covered by any of the above listed groups, you must let us know PRIOR to coming in for your eye appointment. Some of the groups require authorization to claim eligibility, before your appointment can be scheduled, and this may take several days to several weeks to obtain the appropriate documentation.

Fees for Eye Examinations:

The fee for an eye examination varies depending on the number of tests provided. Our fee structure meets the guidelines provided by the College of Optometrists of Ontario and The Canadian Association of Optometrists. We are proud to provide our patients with the highest level of Optometric care.
