Please note: Ontario optometrists have made the difficult decision to withdraw from delivering OHIP paid exams, due to neglected eyecare funding from the Ontario government for the past 30 years.
Online booking is still available for non-OHIP paid exams, and we are open for retail.
Please call the office to be put on a waiting list if you are an OHIP paid patient. We apologize for any inconvenience.
If you would like to help, please visit saveeyecare.ca or call your MPP.
