Preparing for your eye exam

Thank you for choosing Kensington Vision and Research Centre. We kindly ask that you arrive 5 minutes before the scheduled start of your appointment in order to be screened in the lobby. There is also an increased wait time to use the elevators as we social distance. Please note, if you arrive more than 30 minutes prior to your appointments, you will be asked to return to your car until 5 minutes before your appointment. Please note, your appointment can take up to 2 hours.

Please bring the following items with you:

  • Your Ontario Health Card (OHIP card)
  • A brief summary of medical history (and any medical changes since your last visit)
  • Your current glasses and/or contact lenses with case
  • A list of all medications you are currently taking
  • Sunglasses, as you may require drops that make your eyes sensitive to the sun

Escorts or anyone bringing you to your appointment will not be able to accompany you to your appointment on the 5th floor. Exceptions will be made for those who require mobility help or translation. Once translation/mobility help is complete, escorts will be asked to wait elsewhere. We will contact them when you are ready to be discharged. After your appointment, you will be accompanied to the lobby by one of our staff where you will be reunited with your escort.

If you have any questions about your upcoming appointment, please feel free to contact us at or by calling 416-928-1335.
