As trained specialists our doctor can treat ocular emergencies, such as infections, eye-related injuries, and can assess sudden vision loss, new onset of flashes and floaters, etc. Our doctor is then qualified to prescribe therapeutics and provide management plans. Additionally, our doctors are also skilled to perform in-office procedures e.g removing foreign bodies from the cornea. When necessary, we provide referrals to other specialists as well.
Please contact us for eyes conditions covered under OHIP program.
If you have major eyelid laceration that requires stitching please head to the nearest emergency hospital.
