    OHIP covers the cost of one major eye exam (for vision and general eye health) every 12 months, plus any minor assessments you need, but only if you are:

    19 years and younger
    65 years and older
    If you are 20 to 64 years old, and you have a specific medical condition affecting your eyes that requires regular monitoring, OHIP will cover a major eye exam for you once every 12 months and any follow-up appointments related to the condition. Covered conditions are:

    diabetes mellitus
    glaucoma
    cataract
    retinal disease
    amblyopia
    visual field defects
    corneal disease
    strabismus
    recurrent uveitis
    optic pathway disease
    OHIP may also cover a major eye exam if it has been requested for a specific reason by your doctor (they will need to give you a referral form).

    You may be eligible for additional eye care if you are on the Ontario Disability Support Program (ODSP) or Ontario Works.
