Specialty Eye Care in Montreal
Our clinics are equipped with the latest technology necessary to test for and treat a wide range of serious eye conditions requiring a specialist’s care.
We Treat the Following Eye Conditions:
Cataracts are the clouding of the eye’s lens. The risk of cataracts increases with age, and they most often occur in people over 50. However, there are also congenital cataracts (when the eye’s lens is cloudy from birth) as well as cataracts that occur as the result of an injury to the eye’s lens. Most cataracts can be successfully treated with surgery.
Macular degeneration (AMD) is the degrading of the structures responsible for foveal (central) vision and is a common eye condition in people over 50.
Damage to the retina (the light-sensitive tissue that lines the back of your eye) can result in vision loss that may be permanent. Retinal tears, retinal detachment, and diabetic retinopathy are all serious conditions that can affect the integrity of the retina and lead to vision loss.
Glaucoma is the leading cause of irreversible blindness. Fortunately, with early diagnosis and treatment, loss of sight from glaucoma is often preventable.
The cornea is the clear covering in front of the eye that protects it from damage. Light passes through the cornea to the lens, where it’s then focused to form a clear image on the retina.
A healthy cornea is transparent, but if it becomes scratched, damaged, or diseased, it can compromise the quality of the person’s vision. There are a wide variety of conditions that can affect the cornea, but most are very treatable.
Our experts treat a variety of eye disorders affecting infants, children, and adolescents, including strabismus, amblyopia, and pediatric cataracts.
Dry eye syndrome occurs when the eyes fail to produce enough tears, or they evaporate too quickly. There are a variety of treatment options, including artificial tears, tear duct plugs, and prescription medications.
Cosmetic eyelid surgery (also known as blepharoplasty) is a surgical procedure designed to enhance the appearance of the eyelids. It focuses on improving the aesthetics of the upper eyelids, lower eyelids, or both. This procedure can be performed for both functional and cosmetic reasons.
