B.C. eye exam extra charge dropped
Thanks to a CBC News investigation, B.C. optometrists have backed down and are no longer charging consumers extra for a service that is supposed to be included in all eye exams.
That could save you as much as $50 on your next visit to the optometrist if she or he has to measure "interpupillary distance."
Reporter Eric Rankin uncovered the overcharge back in the spring and has this exclusive follow-up.
