Due to the inaction of the Ontario government, eye care under OHIP has ended.
Ontario optometrists will no longer see any OHIP patients starting September 1, 2021
Dear valued patients: Although we may not see each other for your annual OHIP eye exam, we're not turning our backs on you. 🇨🇦 We just want Ontarians, our friends, family, and loved ones to have accessible eye care services in the years ahead. So we must act now for the future of optometry in Ontario.
For more than 30 years, successive governments have failed to invest in eye care and properly fund these services. Eye doctors need to pay out of pocket in order to see OHIP patients because the funding doesn't even cover the operating cost of performing the eye exam.
OHIP patients will no longer have access to eye care from Ontario optometrists starting on September 1, 2021. This refers to OHIP-covered patients, children (19 years and under), seniors (65 years and older) and adults living with specific eye conditions or diabetes.
Starting today, Ontario optometrists are redirecting all OHIP patients to their family doctor, ophthalmologist or the ER for eye emergencies.
Thank you for your understanding.

The health and safety of our patient community is, and always will be, our top priority. We will be following requirements from the Ministry of Health, and guidance from the College of Optometrists of Ontario, designed to protect the public and ensure we are practising in the safest way possible.
