Clinics & Inpatient Care Units

Comprehensive ophthalmology / Eye Clinic

What we do

The Eye Clinic at St. Michael’s Hospital cares for adult patients, ages 18 years and older, with a broad range of eye conditions. Appointments are scheduled by referral only. 

Appointments in the Eye Clinic typically last one to two hours; however, the clinic deals with many emergencies and waits may at times be up to two to four hours.

The Eye Clinic does not offer walk-in services. We are an emergency eye clinic that provides care for urgent conditions. Long term follow-up and care is not provided in the Eye Clinic. Once an eye condition is stabilized, patients are referred to community eye care providers for more long term follow-up.
