When to Get an Eye Exam
However, we recommend that you visit the optometrist at least once per year. Annual eye exams allow us to closely monitor your eye health for vision changes and other early signs of disease like cataracts, glaucoma, and age-related macular degeneration.
OHIP covers one eye exam per year for seniors age 65 and over. For adults under age 65, OHIP covers eye exams every 12 months for those with certain medical conditions and eye diseases.
