Ophthalmologists are medical doctors specialized in eye and vision care. They are specialists in the medical and surgical treatment of eye diseases or other conditions. Our ophthalmologists perform cataract surgery in two dedicated eye surgery operating rooms at the NYGH Minor Surgical Procedures and Elder Care Centre (243 Consumers Road).

The Cataract High Volume Centre is a regional centre for cataract surgery. The centre, a partnership between North York General, Markham Stouffville and Humber River Regional hospitals, is serving more people in our community, and decreasing the wait time for cataract implants and surgery.

Non-cataract surgery      

As a designated regional eye centre of the southern area of the Central LHIN, surgeons perform glaucoma and cornea transplants among other non-cataract surgeries such as enucleation, pterygium, and occuloplastic surgery.

Cataract surgery

The decision to operate is made with the patient based on the degree of vision impairment and the impact on their quality of life. Two operating rooms are shared by ophthalmologists from the three hospitals. This collaboration has meant standardizing procedures and processes, such as surgical equipment and medication, to enhance patient safety and patient flow.
