Finding an Eye Doctor

If you have diabetes and do not already see an eye doctor regularly, make an appointment to see one immediately. You can find an optometrist in your area using our convenient Optometrist Locator.

Please note: Optometrists are eye doctors who perform eye exams, diagnose eye diseases, treat common eye disorders and may prescribe medication in some provinces. Optometrists do not require a referral from a specialist and will often accept walk-in patients. If you require further assessment and/or treatment, your optometrist might refer you to an ophthalmologist for more specialized eye care.
