Red Eye, Dry Eye, Itchy or Watery Eyes
Health PEI has started to cover red eye and dry eye visits.
If a patient has allergies or happens to have an infected eye for whatever reason, an optometrist will take a look at it at no cost.
Appointments for issues like red eye from infections or allergies, watery eyes, itchy eyes, or dry eyes are now covered by Health PEI.
However, the province will not cover any treatment or a standard eye exam, only the appointment with the optometrist to check out the red or irritated eye.
