Centre of Excellence

Uptown Eye Specialists has been awarded the “LEADING CLINICS OF THE WORLD” status – a privilege and honour bestowed upon a select few health care providers.


This title is achieved in large part due to our commitment in 3 key areas:

  1. Providing comprehensive  eye care
  2. High caliber physician expertise  with an extensive network of affiliations
  3. Dedication to Research and Education.

Comprehensive Eye Care

Uptown Eye Specialists is truly a one-stop shop for all things “eye”.  We specialize in all areas of ophthalmology, including Cornea, Glaucoma, Retina, Cataract, Oculo-plastics, and Pediatric/Strabismus.  We also specialize in providing eye care services to all age groups.


This truly embodies the term “comprehensive eye care”.

Furthermore, this wealth of experience and qualifications allows us to provide our patients the latest and greatest in their pursuit for visual health – and allows our eye care professionals to interact and dialogue in this pursuit for visual perfection.

Physician Expertise

Our physicians have all achieved excellence in their academic pursuits and areas of sub-specialities.  In addition, most of our surgeons are affiliated with the Department of Ophthalmology & Vision Sciences at the University of Toronto.

This level of expertise complements an extensive list of health care institutions that our surgeons are affiliated with:

Research and Education

Uptown Eye Specialists is focused on delivering education to the next generation of eye care providers to all levels of medical trainees.  By providing patients a team of eye care providers, we ensure that patient-centric health care is a top priority.
