EyeCare: It’s Who We Are & What We Do
30 Years of Putting Your Eye Health First
In 1986, Shelburne Primary EyeCare opened its doors for the first time. Our desire to bring approachable, friendly eye care to Shelburne was met with great enthusiasm, and we’ve been happily growing ever since.
In 2005, we moved to our current location on First Avenue. Having built our office from the ground up, we’re very proud of our building and love hearing the compliments we often get on our decor and design.
From the warm, earthy colour palette, to the round welcoming space of our reception area; everything about our office is designed to put you at ease and make you feel at home. After all, a home is really just a place you can belong. And everyone belongs at Shelburne Primary EyeCare.
Making EyeCare Accessible to You
We believe everyone should have access to thorough, compassionate eye care. That’s why we’ve done everything we can to make our practice accessible to those with reduced mobility. We were even recognized for our efforts with an Accessibility Award; an honour we value greatly.
We want to make it easy for you to develop and maintain good eye health. At Shelburne Primary EyeCare, we strive to make all of our patients feel valued, included and respected.
Giving Back to Our Community
In the last 30 years, Shelburne has given us so much. That’s why we make it our priority to give back to the people of Shelburne by donating to a number of local charities through events, silent auctions, and time commitments.
We also love to contribute to the recreational side of our community. Over the years we’ve had the pleasure of supporting a number of our local sports teams and events, such as the Shelburne Fair and the Shelburne Heritage Music Festival.
We offer contact lens recycling through www.everycontactcounts.ca and also recycle glasses with Lions Club. Please ask us about these programs on your next visit!
Shelburne Primary EyeCare has been providing Shelburne, Melancthon, Alliston, Collingwood and surrounding areas with quality eye care for more than 33 years.
The Ontario Health Insurance Plan (OHIP) covers optometry services for citizens under age 19 and 65 or older. Services include 1 major eye exam per year and some minor exams. For citizens between the ages of 20-64, some services may be covered if your vision is affected by various medical conditions, such as glaucoma, cataracts, corneal or retinal disease, and others. A complete list of eye diseases covered by OHIP can be found on the program’s website.
