Our mission is to provide timely access to the highest quality ophthalmologic services with state-of-the art diagnostic and therapeutic equipment and excellent medical and surgical eye care. Services are provided in English and French.

Our warm and friendly eye care Staff at the St. Mary’s Hospital Eye Clinic provide dedicated patient support through their technical, interpersonal and administrative roles.

Appointments are by referral with services for general ophthalmology, diabetic retinopathy, glaucoma, oculoplastics, cataracts, and macular degeneration.

Laser treatments for diabetic retinopathy and glaucoma are available, as are visual field testing, fundus photography, cataract lens measurements (A scan biometry), as well as OCT scanning for retinal diseases.

Given our close relationship and proximity to the École d’Optometrie of University of Montreal, glasses and contact lenses are not prescribed in the clinic.
