O-7, r. 5.1 - Code of ethics of optometrists

Full text
74. An optometrist must ensure that the patient is informed of the approximate and foreseeable cost of the optometric services and ophthalmic products offered, before such services are provided or such products are ordered and each time the costs are likely to increase significantly.
Information on the costs may in particular be communicated by an accessible and explicit sign displayed on the premises where an optometrist practises, provided that the patient is given a valid opportunity to obtain additional explanations in that respect and, where applicable, to refuse the services or products whose cost the patient does not want to assume.
