Eye Clinic FAQs
When should my child have an eye exam?
Based on visual development, your child should have an eye exam at the age of 6-9months. This is a good time to make sure that vision is developing normally.
I am diabetic, do I have to pay for an eye exam?
As a diabetic, BC Medical does pay for your eye exam up to once every 6 months. The maximum they pay is $45.73. Depending on the office you go to, the exam fee may be different and you would pay the difference.
What do I need to bring with me for my appointment?
When you come in for your eye exam, you should bring your Carecard, a list of the medications and vitamins you take, any eyeglasses that you currently use and if you use contact lenses, come in wearing them. If you have extended health benefits, bring your plan information in as we may be able to bill the plan on your behalf.
