Opticians and Optometrists - Waterloo Wellington

Optometrists assess the eye and vision system. They also diagnose, treat and prevent disorders of the eye and vision system.

Opticians fit and adjust subnormal vision devices, contact lenses or eyeglasses.

In Ontario, regulated health professions are governed under the Regulated Health Professions Act, 1991 (RHPA) and health profession Acts (i.e., Medicine Act, 1991).

To find an optician or optometrist look in the yellow pages under "Opticians" and "Optometrists". A searchable directory of optometrists is also available by visiting the College of Optometrists of Ontario’s website (see below).

 
These services are located outside of Waterloo Wellington, but provide service to Waterloo Wellington.
