Diabetes can significantly impact your vision, so it’s crucial to have regular eye exams to detect any potential problems early on and prevent vision loss. Our team of experts will work with you to ensure you receive the best care for your eye health.
Our diabetic eye exams are designed to detect various conditions common in those with diabetes, including diabetic retinopathy, cataracts, and glaucoma. We utilize the latest science and cutting-edge technologies to diagnose and treat these conditions.
If necessary, we also have access to a network of top specialists in the Greater Toronto Area (GTA) that we can refer you to for secondary and tertiary eye care services. We aim to provide all our patients with the highest quality, comprehensive eye care.
Diabetes & The Eye
Diabetes is a chronic health condition that affects the insulin levels in your body. If you have diabetes, it means your body either can’t make enough insulin or cannot properly use the insulin it does produce.
Insulin regulates the amount of glucose in your blood. If your blood glucose levels are often high, it can damage the sensitive blood vessels in your eyes, increasing your chance of developing eye diseases such as:
- Diabetic retinopathy
- Diabetic macular edema

Wow, what a great experience! I was able to book a same-day appointment after calling multiple optometrists in the area with an eye emergency. Both Dr.Heshmati and Dr.Habib took their time with me – it didn’t feel rushed at all, and they always ensured I was comfortable and were diligent in getting to the solution of my issue! Not only were the doctors exceptional, but the front desk staff went above and beyond to ensure I had my following appointments booked and that I had all my questions answered! All in all, fantastic experience. I highly recommend this location and wish other practices held to their standard.
Everyone I interacted with was very friendly, respectful, and attentive. From the person who did the eye tests to the person who helped with the glasses.
The doctor was also great. He didn’t rush and took his time explaining his observations and the next steps. He truly cares. As a healthcare professional myself, I know when I see exemplary patient care.
Thank you for the awesome service
I’ve never had an eye appointment before so I didn’t know what to expect. The staff was absolutely wonderful! Dr Heshmati was so kind and thorough and knowledgeable…he explained everything he was going to do so well and helped me with my prescription.
I had help from a wonderful lady whose name I didn’t catch…she helped me pick out the perfect frames for my new glasses and was so patient and helpful.
The staff was so friendly and approachable. I had a great experience and I highly recommend this clinic to anyone needing their eyes checked!
I wish I knew this eye clinic earlier! The eye exam was very thorough and Dr. Habib explained in detail about our testing results. The clinic has advanced machine to detect eye problems that are not normally checked. The front desk assistant was very professional as well and helped us finding eye glasses. Clinic is super clean!
