Please be advised that we will not be seeing children, seniors or any OHIP insured eye exams as of September 1st due to province wide withdrawal of service by Ontario optometrists. Self paid exams with patients aged 20-64 are still being offered as usual. To learn more about this situation please click HERE.

Glaucoma – Silent Thief of Vision

Glaucoma first affects this peripheral vision before getting anywhere near the central vision. This is why it’s called the silent thief of vision because we often don’t notice our side vision shrinking over time until it’s too late!

LASIK and Other Surgeries

Imagine waking up and not having to frantically search for a pair of glasses to start your day. But Dr. Singh, how is this possible since I’ve been wearing glasses/CL my whole life?
