Medically required services generally cover eye trauma or infections. Eye exams that fall under the medically required category include those for diabetics and ocular disease that requires annual monitoring.
Eye exams are an important part of keeping your health in check. MSP provides partial coverage for the following groups:
- Kids aged 0-18 years old are eligible for one full eye exam annually
- Adults aged 19-64 year old are not eligible for an eye exam unless medically required
- Seniors aged 65+ years old are eligible for one full eye exam annually
Doctors of optometry are eligible to set a copay for services and may bill MSP on behalf of their patients when there is coverage available.
MSP does not cover the following services:
- Eyeglasses, contact lenses, eye co-ordination exercises, eye medications
- Contact lens fittings
- Laser refractive surgery management (pre- and post-operative visits)
Your extended health benefits may cover these services depending on the plan you have. You will need to contact them directly to see how much and when you are eligible for these benefits. Many of these companies have mobile apps that are available for you to make claims/check eligibility without having to call in.
The best optometry around Metrotown area. I’ve visited almost all optometrists around Metrotown asking questions, all of their attitudes toward customers are all like “shut up and just pay us the money”. In contrast, both receptionist and doctor at WINK are very friendly, patient, and professional; they are truely customer-centered. Moreover, this clinic is very clean, well organized and well equipped, and has a very pleasant atomsphere. This alone shows how earnest, dedicated, and devoted they are. Last but not least, WINK also has competitive price, especially if you are a student. Overall, highly recommended!
I got both my sunglasses and glasses done here. Natasha and Tyler were both very helpful and patient. Answered my many questions regarding what type of lens to get etc and they always had very good follow through as well. Overall very welcoming and friendly atmosphere in the office 🙂
Some of the nicest and most helpful people around.
My first time getting glasses couldn’t have been any better, I received excellent service and had all of my questions answered perfectly. The physical location is very convenient and the shop itself is beautiful.
