Eye Care in Ontario has reached a breaking point.
Ontario’s optometrists take pride in being the backbone of the eye care system, but decades of neglect by the government have them at a breaking point.
After more than 30 years of underfunding, the government now covers an average of 55% of the cost of an OHIP-insured eye exam, leaving optometry clinics to absorb the other 45%. With more than four million services delivered annually under OHIP, the system is no longer sustainable.
