A comprehensive eye examination comprises of the evaluation of the vision quality (such as sharpness of vision, eye movements and eye prescription), external and internal evaluation of the eye, and a retinal photography to provide a detail view of the retina (back of the eye). If further testing is required, our doctors will conduct other tests such as visual field or optical coherence tomography (OCT) to help with diagnosing any ocular disease.
Individuals who are 19 years and younger or 65 years and older are covered once a year for an eye examination. If an individual is between the age of 20 to 64 and has a condition such as glaucoma, diabetes, strabismus, or corneal disease, OHIP covers an eye examination annually as well.
