DEAR VALUED PATIENTS

AND ALL MEMBERS OF OUR COMMUNITY

Ontario Optometrists have been without a contract with 

OHIP FOR THE PAST TEN YEARS.

We are currently trying to negotiate a new contract with

THE FORD GOVERNMENT. 

As a result, we have not been performing routine eye examinations since September 1, 2021. We will still examine any person covered by OHIP if there is any vision loss or eye pain

that may indicate an urgent situation.


You may also visit your family doctor or walk-in clinic for care !

The FORD GOVERNMENT has told the people of the Province of Ontario that Medical Doctors can do eye examinations just as well as OPTOMETRISTS during this time. That's what your Government is saying !!


We are hopeful to sign a new agreement before the end of November, but the FORD GOVERNMENT has not called or emailed our negotiating team since August 2021. In the media, the FORD GOVERNMENT accuses Ontario Optometrists of not wanting to bargain with them, but we are constantly ready to negotiate a new contract for the future, 

to ensure quality eye care can be offered to ALL ONTARIANS. 

We are anxious to sign a new deal, but currently 

ONTARIO OPTOMETRISTS RECEIVE THE LOWEST

REMUNERATION OF ANY OPTOMETRISTS IN CANADA !!!

OHIP rates for Optometry have increased just $5 over the past 32 years, although our overhead expenses have increased dramatically over this time period, to the point that we lose money on every OHIP- funded service.

Go to saveeyecare.ca to see the facts, and send your MPP a message to negotiate a settlement to allow us to continue to serve OHIP patients.
