Insurance

The cost of routine eye exams and prescription eyewear can be of real concern, especially for large families. In many cases, vision insurance can lower these annual expenses.

A vision insurance policy is not the same as health insurance. Regular health insurance plans protect you against financial losses due to unexpected eye injuries or disease. Vision insurance, on the other hand, is a wellness benefit designed to provide routine eye care, prescription eyewear, and other vision-related services at a reduced cost.

Because we provide both medical and routine eye care, we accept a number of insurance plans to help cover the cost depending on your individual needs.

We can electronically submit to some insurance companies, please bring in your card for verification.

St. Marys Optometry is currently closed due to the COVID-19 outbreak. All routine eye care will be postponed until later in the year. At this time we do not know when the office will be re-opening.

If you are experiencing an eyecare emergency please call Stratford General Hospital at 519.272.8210 and ask to speak to the ophthalmologist on call.

For all other eyecare questions and issues, please leave a detailed message including a callback number at 519.284.4144. Dr. Venn is checking the voicemail regularly and will return your call as soon as she is able to.

We are sorry for any trouble and inconvenience this may cause you. These precautionary steps are being taken in accordance with the College of Optometrists of Ontario’s mandate to protect our patients by providing a safe operating environment.

When we have a probable re-opening date, or if our situation changes in any other way, we will update this message.

We hope that you are able to stay safe, healthy and connected throughout this global healthcare crisis.
