A. If you’re under 20 or over 65 and have a current Ontario Health Insurance card, your eye exam is covered yearly by this insurance. As these are the years that can have the most changes in sight, it’s highly recommended that you have this yearly exam. For ages 20-64, you’ll need to pay for your eye exam, and if you have a benefit plan that covers this, you can submit your receipt for reimbursement. Most people in this age range have their eyes tested once in every two years. We accept many forms of insurance at Nelms Opticians.
Should you experience any problems with your eyes at any time, don’t wait, but rather call us to see if investigation is required, and we can direct you to the appropriate person for help. For any emergency, please go directly to the hospital.
