If you are seen by your Doctor of Optometry and:

  • There is no coverage under your plan contract, or
  • Your coverage has run out because you have exceeded the yearly limit of your plan, or
  • Your Doctor of Optometry’s fees for a procedure exceed the amount your plan allows, or
  • Your coverage has expired and you will be responsible for payment of the treatment.


We welcome individuals with BC Social Services (Ministry of Human Resources), First Nations Health Authority (Status card) and Department of Veteran Affairs (Canada) coverage to schedule appointments.

We will assist you in obtaining approval for coverage of your eye examination and/or eyewear. However, please be aware that almost all of these organizations can require up to a week for prior approval and have strict guidelines regarding the timeline for examinations and replacement of glasses.


Please note: There are times when we are not able to accommodate additional testing such as a Visual Field test during the same day of your Full Examination due to varying staff schedules. These additional tests are usually performed on specific days and are regarded as a separate fee from the full examination.
