Getting Ontario Eye Care Coverage: 

Eye See Eye Learn - Free Glasses for Children

Eye See Eye Learn - New free eye care program for young children beginning school.

As of July 1, 2015, Junior Kindergarten (born 2011) children enrolled in Junior Kindergarten in Ontario are able to participate in the Eye See...Eye Learn® program for the 2015/2016 school year: Simply click the “Find an Optometrist Locator”  link below in related links and contact a local participating optometrist to have your child’s Eye See…Eye Learn® exam by June 30, 2016.
Remember to take your child’s health card with you on the day of the exam.
It’s that easy!
Participating children who require a pair of glasses will receive one pair free of charge courtesy of  corporate partners Nikon Lenswear and OGI Eyewear. The frames are fashionable and are made with high quality and impact resistant polycarbonate lenses. This program is made possible with funding assistance from the Government of Ontario.
OHIP : Ontario Health Insurance Plan covers an eye examination once a year for persons under 20 or 65 and over. OHIP also covers a major eye exam once every 12 months for persons aged 20 - 64 who have medical conditions requiring regular eye examinations such as diabetes mellitus, glaucoma, cataract, retinal disease, amblyopia, visual field defects, corneal disease, strabismus. Your family physician can also refer you for an eye exam. In addition people on income assistance through the Ontario Disability Support Program, Ontario Works or the Family Benefits Program receive coverage for routine eye examinations once every two years.

Gift of Sight Program: The Gift of Sight Program aka One Sight is available in many Ontario communities, but we do not know if it is available in City of Kawartha Lakes. This program provides prescription eyewear to low-income working individuals/families NOT on social assistance, ODSP, nor having benefit plans through Indian Affairs, Veteran Affairs or personal plans in need of glasses. The application is usually made through your local Community Care office.
