Medical Treatment of Glaucoma and Other Eye Diseases --> See Glaucoma section

We are pleased and excited to announce that after many years, our provincial government has passed legislation allowing Optometrists to now treat eye disease with Therapeutic Pharmaceutical Agents (eye medicines) obtained by prescription. This will no doubt enhance overall patient care by maximizing resources within the health care system and essentially means more timely intervention (one stop diagnosis and treatment) for patients suffering from a variety of eye conditions. Ocular problems or disease that cannot be managed medically will of course still be referred to an appropriate specialist. We are committed to embrace these added responsibilities in an effort to provide the highest level of service to our patients.
