Glasses Insurance: A Country-by-Country Breakdown

In Canada, general public health insurance covers medical payments for eye injury and various eye diseases such as cataracts, glaucoma, and diabetic retinopathy. Optional/supplemental glasses insurance provides additional insurance coverage for eye examinations, contact lenses, eyeglasses and/or frames, and, in some instances, part of the costs for elective laser surgery for vision correction. 

The ‘Optometric Benefit’ in Nova Scotia provides glasses insurance for visual analysis carried out by optometrists. This benefit is limited to one routine vision analysis every two years for those under 10 or over 65 years old. Those between 10 and 65 are not covered for routine check-ups, but are covered where medical need is indicated. Under the Children’s Drug and Optical Program, eligible low-income families are assisted with the cost of prescription drugs, eye exams and eye glasses for children 18 or younger.

 

Best Place to Buy Glasses Without Insurance

Have you ever found yourself squinting through old lenses because you don’t have vision insurance? A low-cost eye exam and discount glasses can bring your world back into focus without breaking the bank. With just a little legwork, you can get affordable, stylish glasses - even if you don’t have vision insurance. 

Here’s how: Get a low-cost eye exam (because you’ll need a prescription) and be sure to ask for your pupillary distance. If you’ve recently had an eye exam but don’t know your prescription and want to get your hands on some glasses, try our groundbreaking lens scanner app. Then, you’re all set for buying affordable glasses online!

Our cheapest glasses start at $39, and our best-sellers typically retail from around $50-$150.
