The Ontario Association of Optometrists has announced a pause in the OHIP job action.  Resumption of OHIP service is effective November 23, 2021 for patients under 19 and over 65.  Patients will be able to address their eye care needs with their optometrists as the government enters into negotiations with the OAO.  The School will continue to see its own established OHIP patients for the remainder of the year.
