The Ontario Health Insurance Plan (OHIP) covers optometry services for citizens under age 19 and 65 or older. Services include 1 major eye exam per year and some minor exams. For citizens between the ages of 20-64, some services may be covered if your vision is affected by various medical conditions, such as glaucoma, cataracts, corneal or retinal disease, and others. A complete list of eye diseases covered by OHIP can be found on the program’s website.
