The Toronto Eye Clinic and its team of medical and surgical eye doctors are located in midtown Toronto.
Our goal is to meet the needs of our patients with the highest quality of service and the most up-to-date technology.
We offer eye exam's, contact lens solutions, laser eye surgery, as well as full service eye diagnostic services. We have added two lasers for early detection and diagnosis of Glaucoma. We use the latest HRT3 and OCT tomograph lasers in detection of Glaucoma. We believe this leads to earlier detection and better treatment and ultimately stopping loss of vision from this silent disease.
We are conveniently located on the 6th floor of 2200 Yonge Street, at Yonge and Eglinton. We invite family eye care, and we welcome you.
