Telemedicine in North York

Eye Care from the Comfort of Your Own Home 

This service temporarily is not available.

At Empress Eye Clinic, we wanted to find a way to continue delivering expert eye care throughout the COVID 19 pandemic. That’s why we began offering telemedicine to our patients.

Telemedicine allows us to deliver medical eye care virtually. In a telemedicine appointment, we can do nearly everything we do during an in-person appointment, including health screenings, diagnoses, and writing prescriptions. If your eye doctor believes you’d benefit from in-person care, they may schedule you an appointment or refer you to a specialist to get you the care you need. 

Are you interested in receiving eye care from the comfort of your own home? Book your telemedicine appointment today!

What Do We Diagnose Through a Digital Platform? 

With advances in technology, our optometrists can now provide virtual medical eye consultations for various eye problems. During a telemedicine appointment, our eye doctors can assess the overall health of your eyes while addressing conditions and symptoms such as: 

  • Eye infections
  • Itchy eyes & allergies
  • Eye pain & redness
  • Scratched eye (corneal abrasion)
  • Irritated eyes 
  • Flashers & floaters
  • Blurred or double vision
  • Distorted vision 
  • Dry eye syndrome 
  • Blepharitis
  • Dermatitis

How Can We Diagnose Through a Digital Platform? 

During your virtual appointment, an Empress optometrist will ask you questions and take images of your eyes, just like they would during an in-person appointment. They will use this information to diagnose, treat, and manage your condition. With telemedicine, you can feel confident that you are receiving the best care from the comfort of your own home.

Paying for Telemedicine

In most cases, insurance plans will cover telemedicine visits, but we ask that you always double-check with your insurance provider before your visit.
