September 1, 2023 OHIP Updates For Eye Examinations

Starting September 1, 2023, there are some changes to how OHIP covers eye exams in Ontario.

These adjustments are the result of thoughtful discussions between the Ontario Ministry of Health and the Ontario Association of Optometrists and are based on sound clinical evidence and expert advice. The shared goal is to ensure all Ontarians have access to the best, up-to-date eye care available and that patients at greatest risk of vision loss are publicly funded by OHIP.

To discover more about how these changes might impact you or your family members, select one of the tabs below. They provide more detailed information about OHIP’s coverage for eye exams across different age groups.

On March 24, 2023, the Ontario Government issued a media release about these changes, which you can read here.
