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.
