ONTARIO OPTOMETRISTS CONTINUE TO CALL ON THE PROVINCE FOR INCREASED FUNDING-SEPTEMBER 17 2020

Libby Znaimer is joined by Dr. Sheldon Salaba, President of the Ontario Association of Optometrists.

Back in June, Ontario optometrists initiated a campaign to call on the government to “end the 30-year neglect in funding for eye care”. Now, they are continuing that call-to-action asking for support from the province to either cover the true cost of eye exams or give optometrists more flexibility in their billings. Dr. Salaba gives more details on the support that he and his fellow optometrists want to see. To learn more, visit the campaign page here.
