Optometrists ARE Essential!

To our Valued Patients,

We are pleased to share that Optometrists are NOT included in the recent province wide lock down announcement. We will continue to provide care to our patients following the stringent protocols we have been using since the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic. As always, the safety of our patients and staff is our top priority.

We will be closed December 24, 2020, as per our usual holiday closure, and plan to resume care on January 4, 2021.

If you are experiencing an ocular emergency during the time of closure, please present yourself to your nearest emergency department.

Thank you for your continued patronage and enjoy a safe holiday season!

Please be advised that effective September 1st 2021, we will not be seeing any children (19 and younger), seniors (65 and older) as well as other types of OHIP-insured exams (such as diabetes) due to a province wide job action.
