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.

Glaucoma Tools & Resources 

 Glaucoma is the #1 cause of irreversible vision loss. Efforts are underway, across health professions, to identify those at risk earlier and more effectively. The Canadian Medical Association Journal (CMAJ) published a glaucoma case study in its January 5th 2015 issue. Included in the article appendix is an MD guide for screening and referral for patients at risk for glaucoma. The guide has been endorsed by the Canadian Glaucoma Society, Canadian Ophthalmological Society (COS), the Canadian Association of Optometrists (CAO) and the College of Family Physicians of Canada (CFPC). The guide is available in English and French.
