Is my eye examination covered by OHIP?

As of November 1, 2004, OHIP will insure yearly eye examinations for children 0-19 years old and seniors 65 years old and above. People between 20 and 64 may be covered thru OHIP if they have specific medical conditions such as cataracts, glaucoma or diabetes. If you are not covered by OHIP, your health care benefits from work may insure you. Check with your employer or benefits department.

What should I bring to my appointment?

You should bring a list of all medications you are taking, your current glasses and Health Card to every appointment. If this is your first visit, we will ask you to fill out a general history form.

When should I bring in my child for an eye exam?

We recommend to see children at six months of age, and then yearly after age 3. You can bring them at any age if you see or suspect a problem. They do not need to know how to read, or have to respond for an examination. It is important for children to have routine check ups because they are often not aware if there is a vision problem. Early detection and treatment of many vision disorders decreases the chance of learning problems and minimizes the risk of amblyopia (lazy eye).
