An important notice from Dr. St. Pierre: Today, optometrists in Ontario start Job Action. Ever ytime a patient walks through my door for an exam, it costs me on average $80 (staff, PPE, office supplies, occupation costs) to see that person. That’s before I get paid for my time. The Ontario government pays me $25.15 to perform a partial exam and does not allow me to bill the patient any more. That means every time I see a patient for an OHIP covered eye exam, I am subsidizing the cost of that eye exam out of my own pocket. This is not sustainable. As a small business owner in the time of COVID-19, I am struggling to provide quality eyecare to my community with the current OHIP funding agreement. As of today, all patient driven partial exams and MEE exams will no longer be booked in my clinic, but referred elsewhere. Thank you for your understanding.
