Vision is more than what you see on the letter chart. The ability to use vision effortlessly and comfortably, with accurate perceptions of where we are in our environment as well as where objects are in space, is the hallmark of how we perform and function in our daily lives. Vision impairment can occur even with 20/20 vision! When vision doesn’t work, it interferes.

As a Toronto optometrist, I am dedicated to providing thorough quality eye care for people of all ages. With the office located in Downtown Toronto, we are conveniently located for your eye exam. I address the individual needs of my patients while utilizing state-of-the art technology and knowledge of the latest in medical eye care research. Please feel free to contact me with any questions you may have and I look forward to meeting with you soon!

I have expertise in treating patients who have suffered a concussion as a result of a sports injury or car accident, as well as from other sources.

Additionally, I specialize in eye health and eye disease prevention. If you are at risk for Glaucoma or Macular Degeneration, set up an eye exam to find out what vitamins and alternative treatments can be helpful for you.

Concussion and Post-Trauma Vision Syndrome

70% of our brain is dedicated to vision and vision processing, and 80% of all sensory processing in the entire body is directly affected by information coming in from the eyes. Thus, it is not surprising that a concussion affects the visual system in some way.

Assessment and Eye Exams

A standard examination does not reveal enough information about the complexities of visual dysfunction associated with a concussive injury. A full assessment is necessary after an injury.
