Frequently asked questions
Do I need a referral?

Patients 19 and under, 65 and over, diabetics and patients with eye disease require a referral for their initial appointment. If you fit into the above categories and have not been seen in our office for over 2 years, you require a new referral to be seen by Dr. Goldberg again. You do not need a referral to see Dr. Anna Yu


How long will my appointment take?

You should plan  to be in the office for at least 2 hours. If you are coming by wheeltrans please book 3 hours.


What should I bring to my appointment?
  • Your Ontario Health Insurance Card (OHIP card)

  • List of current medications and drug allergies

  • The prescription glasses that you use

  • Sunglasses / baseball cap as you may get dilating drops that make your eyes sensitive to light

  • Contact lens wearers can wear their lenses to the office but please bring your glasses and a contact lens case containing storage solution

  • The name and phone number of your family doctor


Do I have to pay for anything?
  • Age 0 – 19: OHIP will cover your routine eye exam

  • Age 20 – 64: OHIP does not cover routine eye exam except under specific circumstances, ie you are diabetic or have certain specific eye problems

  • Age 65 and up: OHIP will cover your routine eye exam

  • Special tests: Some tests that are helpful in monitoring glaucoma issues are not covered. Payment can be made by credit card (VISA or Mastercard), debit card or cash. We provide you with a receipt to submit to your insurance company.

  • Uninsured services: pharmacy calls for prescription renewals and some other services are not covered by OHIP and are billed either individually or as part of an annual service fee




Can I drive after my appointment?

There are no driving restrictions if your eyes are dilated. However, your vision will be blurry. You may wish to have a driver. We advise not driving after a laser appointment or after having a lid procedure unless you have cleared this with your doctor first.
