Will my exam be covered by OHIP?

  • Patients 19 years and under: OHIP will cover an annual comprehensive eye examination and any needed follow-up visits
  • Most adults aged 20 to 64 are not covered under OHIP. Certain patients between the ages of 20 and 64 are eligible for OHIP coverage when there are underlying medical conditions or eye conditions
  • Patients 65 years and over: OHIP will cover an annual comprehensive eye examination and any needed follow-up visits

Some specialized tests may not be covered by OHIP. For example, OHIP does not cover digital retinal photography, Ocular Coherence Tomography (OCT), or contact lens fittings and assessments. Visual field testing is not always covered by OHIP. Our office will bill OHIP for services wherever possible, but in some cases the cost of testing will be billed to the patient.
