OHIP is shifting the focus of insured services to patients with sight-threatening conditions, while continuing to fund children’s exams and most seniors exams. This is to ensure that the optometrists of Ontario can continue to provide the high-quality access to care that Ontarians deserve, both now and for future generations.
The optometrists at Pierce Family Vision want to assure you, our patients, that we will be here to care for your eyes and vision with all the latest equipment and technology, as well as the old fashioned time and attention, that you have been used to. Some of these appointments will continue to be covered under OHIP and some of this will now be paid by the patient. Our patients will continue to be able to access the care they need, when they need it at Pierce Family Vision.
Hopefully the information below will explain the changes further. We want to stress that we do not want our patients to defer eye exams if they are having issues. Our recommendation is always to contact our office if you are having any concerning eye or vision changes in between your regular eye exams. And please contact our office if you have any questions about the changes after reading the information following:
