What is not covered?

Healthy adults between the ages of 20 and 64 are no longer insured under OHIP for comprehensive eye examinations; however, many third party insurers have health care plans in place which do allow vision care coverage. Please check with your insurer to see what is covered in your plan. As well, the following are not covered services under OHIP:

  • Additional eye examinations or second opinions 
  • Retinal photography 
  • Contact lens assessments and fittings 
  • Laser Refractive surgery co-management (pre and post-operative) visits
  • Recommended treatments such as spectacles, contact lenses, low vision aids, vision training, eye medications.
