Doctors of Optometry have offices in most cities and communities across Canada. Having a local optometrist as a primary eye care provider gives patients the best access to comprehensive eye care services and continuity of care. In some instances however, geographical location, poor mobility, or other restrictions may prevent patients from having an in-office eye exam. Mobile eye care services can be valuable in these circumstances to provide access to comprehensive eye care for all Canadians. The standard for mobile eye care is the responsibility of provincial optometric colleges.
