Does my BC Care Card cover the exam fee?

At our clinic, MSP fully covers the exam fee for patients under age 19 years old and 65 years and

older. For ages 19-64, your exam fee will be partially covered if you have certain eye diseases or health

conditions (i.e. diabetes, high blood pressure, etc.). Eye emergencies/injuries are

generally covered by MSP.


Does my extended health care cover the exam fee?

We directly bill most extended health care insurances. Please bring your extended health care card with information on the policy number and member ID to your appointment.


Which languages do we speak?

All doctors and staff members speak English, Cantonese and Mandarin.


At what age should my child start getting an eye exam?

Optometrists recommend children getting an eye exam at 6 months of age to ensure their eye health

and vision is developing properly.


Do I need a referral to see an optometrist?

No, referrals are not necessary. A routine eye exam should be part of everyone aged 6 months and

older to ensure their eyes are healthy.

entrance. Our clinic is directly next to the parking lot entrance on the 3 rd floor.
