In cases where eye examinations are not insured by OHIP, The Eye and Vision Care Benefit Program, which is part of the overall Non-Insured Health Benefits (NIHB) Program, covers a portion of the eye examination fee performed by Dr. Fydell (Optometrist).

Dr. Fydell's office must obtain pre-approval of the benefit by calling the Health Canada regional office prior to your examination.  Therefore, it is important to identify that you are part of this program when you are making your eye examination appointment so that we can call for prior approval.

If you have any questions about the coverage provided under this program, please call our office at (807) 622-4447.
