Insurance Coverage in BC

Insurance coverage is provincially mandated and how much coverage you have will depend on a variety of factors.


  • Children aged 0-18 years old – MSP will cover an annual full eye examination. 
  • Adults aged 19-64 – MSP does not cover routine eye exams, unless it’s a medical necessity.
  • Seniors aged 65+ - MSP partially covers an annual eye exam.

Extended Medical Coverage

If you have extended medical coverage, either through a personal plan or your employer, your coverage may be at a different rate. It will depend on what percentage or dollar value your plan covers. You should always double check with your insurance provider to see what type and how much coverage you’re eligible for.

Our office has the ability to direct bill so we can deal with your insurance provider directly when you come in for our services. We’ll just need your insurance details, such as policy number and your insurer’s name, to put into our system.

Feel free to contact us if you have any questions about rates, insurance, and more. We’ll do our best to answer them for you.
