What happens when you come to see the optometrist?

Firstly, the optometrist will discuss your vision and visual needs in detail, along with your eyes’ history and any relevant general health and family history. Then they will perform a thorough refraction and work with you on a final prescription that meets your needs. Your eyes will be examined inside and out and your intraocular pressures will be measured.

We don’t usually need any old prescriptions, but bringing your existing glasses is a big help.

Comprehensive consultation $80

Eye exams can be claimed with all insurers.

Who is covered by the Ontario Health Insurance Plan (OHIP)?
