OHIP Covered Exams

September 13, 2021

Vision is precious.  Most would say that it is the most important of all the human senses.  Except for the Ontario government, that is.

Since 1989, successive political parties in Ontario have refused to formally talk to optometrists about how to best deliver eye care in this province.  Despite inflation rising almost 80% since then, our fees have barely budged from $39.15 in 1989 to an average of $44.65 today.  This does not come close to covering the costs (rent, staff, utilities, equipment, taxes and supplies) to provide an eye exam, leaving optometrists to pay out of their own pockets to conduct OHIP-funded exams.  Worse still, Ontario’s legislation makes it illegal for optometrists to accept anything above what OHIP pays, meaning that a patient cannot even pay for an eye exam if they are OHIP-eligible.

As the Ontario government has put optometrists in this province in an unworkable situation, we have made the difficult decision to withdraw from providing OHIP-funded examinations.  This prompted the government to offer an 8.48% increase, which is far below the 60% increase that would still leave us as the lowest fully funded province in Canada.

Optometrists in this province are proud to offer quality eye care to their patients, but we need your help.  If you value your vision, please let the government know that it needs to work with optometrists to find a way to provide sustainable eye care to people in Ontario.   Please contact MPP Mike Harris at mike.harrisco@pc.ola.org or (519) 669-2090 to let him know that you care about eye care, or visit www.SaveEyeCare.ca for more information.


COVID-19 Update (January 2021)

September 13, 2021

Baden Eyecare is still open as optometrists are an essential service.

Due to social distancing measures, we cannot accept walk-ins at this time. Please call ahead to book an appointment for an exam, glasses selection, dispensing, adjustments or repairs.

Upon arrival, all patients are screened for COVID-19 symptoms. As per our College guidelines, all patients must wear a mask (properly covering both nose and mouth) when in our office so please bring one with you to your appointment.


Blue Blocking Lenses

February 2, 2021

Are your eyes feeling strained working at a computer all day? Blue blocking lenses filter out some of the harsh light from your screen and may reduce eye strain, allow for better sleep after using screens in the evening, and even prevent eye diseases like macular degeneration.  Blue blocking lenses are also available in prescription!


Transitions ® Contact Lenses

Tired of sunglasses fogging up while wearing your mask?  Transitions ® contact lenses automatically darken when exposed to daylight, eliminating the need for glasses indoors and sunglasses outdoors!

Wishing everyone a safe and happy Victoria Day weekend!


March 18, 2020

On the recommendation of the College of Optometrists of Ontario in regards to the COVID-19 pandemic, our office will be closed until at least March 30th for both the safety of our patients and staff. We will be taking appointments for urgent cases only, such as eye injuries, infections, or visions of flashing lights or floaters. If you have an eye emergency, please call us at 519-214-2020 so we can determine if we can avoid a trip to the ER for you.

For any orders that have been placed at our office, we will try to fulfill them as expeditiously as possible. Once your order has arrived and been checked, we will contact you to make arrangements for pick up. Future contact lens orders can be shipped directly to your home address, if you would prefer.

We will be checking our voicemail and email at badeneyecare@gmail.com throughout these uncertain times and will return messages as soon as we can.

Stay safe and healthy, and we hope to ‘see’ you on March 31st!
