SAFETY COMES FIRST - To help ensure your safety we are pleased to announce that all of our staff have been vaccinated and that we are strictly following all COVID-19 protocols according to the College of Optometry guidelines, and York Region public health.

Our Optometrists

Dr. Feinstein specializes in understanding how the human eye really works, as well as diseases and conditions that affect your vision - many of which do not have obvious symptoms. Our Eye doctor in Richmond Hill knows how age and risk factors affect vision over time for young and old, and they understand the benefits and features of corrective lenses including eyeglasses and contacts.

Dr. Feinstein takes the time to explain the results of your eye exam, describe your options and listen to your eye care needs. Because maintaining good eye health is an ongoing partnership, we encourage you to ask questions and share your health information, which could be vital to monitoring, diagnosing and treating potential vision problems.
