Unfortunately, optometrists have had to withdraw all OHIP services as of September 1, 2021. This is due to chronic underfunding and a breakdown in negotiations with the Ministry of Health. Ontario Optometrists receive the lowest funding for eye exams in all of Canada by far. The government needs to fix this problem in order for optometrists to be able to provide high-quality sustainable eye care for you and your family. We understand that the current situation with the Ministry of Health is extremely frustrating. We are saddened it has come to this and sincerely apologize for this inconvenience.
We would REALLY appreciate your help. Please call or email your MPP and visit saveeyecare.ca where you can send a letter directly to your MPP, the Minister of Health, and the Premier.”
