MEDICAL & EMERGENCY EYE Exams
Your eyes are the windows to your overall health
At Dr. Matthew Siu & Associates, we believe checking your eye health is just as important as your vision! Many vision-impairing diseases show no outward signs or symptoms in their early stages when they are the most treatable. Our goal is early detection and early treatment to keep you seeing your best and that is why we pride ourselves in providing the highest quality eye care to our patients.
Our office has built a strong rapport with many healthcare providers allowing us to provide you with easier accessibility to medical testing and results as well as direct access to the proper healthcare providers. We make sure that there is direct ongoing communication, whether or not you need a surgical intervention with an ophthalmologist or increased managed care through your family physician, we can help arrange that.
Our optometrists are licensed to treat and manage a wide array of ocular diseases as well as to prescribe ocular therapeutic pharmacological agents in Ontario.
