Advocating on behalf of Eye Health Practitioners to ensure a regulated environment
where the public is protected and the profession prospers
The Canadian Society of Eye Health Practitioners (formerly the Society of Eyecare Professionals) was established as an alternate voice for Opticians in Ontario. Secondary to that role, we strive to foster harmony between the various members of the ophthalmic community including Opticians, Optometrists and Ophthalmologists. Through collaboration of all our partners in the ophthalmic community, we have tackled common issues such as illegal refracting, illegal dispensing and the proliferation of Internet eyeglass and contact lens sales more effectively.
OUR FOUNDING PRINCIPLES
1. Collaboration between all providers of eye health care
2. We support regulated delivery of eye health care and maintaining the highest level of eye care delivery to the public
3. We will act as a mediator and stakeholder between the professions and lawmakers. We will reach out to all existing professional an associations and hope that they will work collaboratively with C-Sehp
C-Sehp has partnered up with Holman Insurance Brokers and together we have created very comprehensive and exclusive programs for our members.
