Frequently asked questions



  1. Am I covered for eye exams?
    Anyone 19 years of age or younger, or 65 or older is covered under OHIP for an eye exam once every 12 months.
    Individuals on most forms of social assistance, such as ODSP, Toronto Welfare, NIHB and Interim Federal Health may also be covered. As well patients with certain eye conditions such as cataracts, strabismus and glaucoma, or systemic diseases such as diabetes may also qualify for yearly eye exams under OHIP.


  2. I'm interested in trying contact lenses. How do I know if I will be comfortable with them?
    With contact lenses "seeing is believing". The only way to tell if you will feel comfortable and see clearly with contact lenses is to experience them first hand. That is why we let every patient considering contact lenses evaluate the way they see and feel with a trial pair of contact lenses before deciding to proceed.

  3. How often should I get my eyes examined?
    Eye Examinations are advisable once every year especially for children, seniors, and diabetics. It is acceptable for patients with good eye health and no symptoms to visit their optometrist every 2 years.

  4. How do I know if I am developing glaucoma or cataracts?

         You don't. Most people with glaucoma have no symptoms until it is too late. A person developing cataracts may experience blurred or             hazy vision but only an internal examination of your eyes can determine whether this is the cause. That is why regular eye                             examinations are important.


    5.  I don't like wearing glasses. Am I a candidate for refractive sur​gery such as LASIK?

         Some people are better suited for laser eye surgery than others. Factors such as your glasses prescription, and the condition of your                 corneas will determine if you are a good candidate.

  1. Comprehensive Eye Examinations
    We evaluate the refractive state of the eye (i.e. measuring the exact prescription for glasses or contacts)
    as well as the health of the eye, including screening for cataracts, glaucoma and macular degeneration.


  2. Spectacle Therapy
    We have been providing quality eyeglasses at affordable prices to our patients for over 80 years.
    Our dispensary has a wide range of frame styles, including many designer and magnetic clip-on frames.
    We also have a huge selection of "retro" frames, some of which date back over 70 years. Just ask!


  3. Contact Lenses
    We dispense contact lenses from all major manufacturers. For those who have never worn contact lenses and
    ​are looking to try them, we provide contact lens fittings. We will find you the lenses that produce the clearest most comfortable vision. We will teach you proper lens care and handling techniques, and monitor your progress. We also stock emergency and trial lenses for our patients.


  4. Post Surgical Care
    We co-manage our patients who get LASIK refractive surgery, both pre and post-operatively. We also provide referrals for patients requiring cataract surgery and continue their care post-surgically.
