Eye Care FAQ

What our Eye Care Patients are Asking!

At Envision Eye Care, our optometrists love receiving and answering your questions so we’ve added this FAQ. Your questions also inspire topics for our blog posts where we delve in matters that concern your vision and how to maintain great eye health!

  • Does OHIP Cover eye exams? How about for my children?
  • Do you handle emergency visits? What are your hours?
  • I’ve been told I can’t wear contacts, can you help?
  • I have dry eyes but drug store products aren’t helping. Can you?
  • Do you have free parking?
  • Do you offer direct billing to my insurance company?
  • I don’t have coverage. How can I pay?
  • Are you open late? What are your hours?

Children’s eye exams (19 and younger) as well as seniors exams (65+) are covered annually by OHIP. Eye exams for adults are not automatically covered but there are a range of conditions that may qualify you for exam coverage via OHIP (which are vital for diabetics, for example). Annual eye exams are strongly recommended for all adults. Learn more about our full eye exams.
