Ontario Health Insurance Plan (OHIP)
Patients over 65 years and those younger than 20 years, are covered by OHIP for a routine eye examination once every 12 months along with any follow-up assessments. Those patients between the ages of 20 to 64 years with specified medical conditions affecting the eye can receive an OHIP insured regular eye examination once every 12 months. Insured persons aged 20 to 64 who have certain medical conditions not listed above may also be covered for regular eye examinations. They should discuss this with their primary health care provider.
