Costs, Payments and Insurance

This depends on your age and your medical or eye conditions. All children under the age of nineteen and Seniors above the age of 65 are partially covered by MSP every year. Between the ages of nineteen and sixty-five the coverage and frequency depends on certain systemic and eye health conditions.

For example, adults diagnosed with Diabetes have partial MSP coverage yearly. These conditions that are covered are subject to change by the BC government. Please contact our office for specific questions about your specific coverage.

We accept cash, debit, Visa, and Mastercard.

More and more people in Canada have independent health insurance and there are many companies who offer coverage. Please check with your provider before your eye exam to see how much they cover towards eye exams, eyeglasses, and contact lenses.

We are able to bill directly for those covered through the ministry of social development for individuals or families who are on income assistance or disability.
We can directly bill Blue Cross for Veterans Affairs, RCMP, Canadian Forces, and First Nations & Inuit Health.

Please let our staff know about your coverage when making your appointment.
