Lowy & Sewell Eye Care is Open and seeing patients!

As of Tuesday, November 23rd, 2021, Ontario Optometrists have agreed to resume services for OHIP funded patients. If your appointment was cancelled or you phone to add your name to our waitlist, we will call you to book an appointment. Please be aware that due to the Job Action we do have a long list of patients on the waiting list, and it will take time to book appointments for everyone. We appreciate your patience.
