Welcome to Grand River Eye Care

We live for the extraordinary moments where we change lives.

It may not happen every day, but when it does, it’s unmistakable. Sometimes it’s the look on a child’s face as they realize that trees are not green blobs, but are covered with thousands of individual, intricate leaves. Or fitting a young man with specialty contact lenses after he’s been told a dozen times that he’ll just have to resign to wearing glasses every day. It could be saving a father’s vision by detecting an unknown retinal tear just in time for emergency surgery to repair. Or seeing a mother’s confident smile when the face in the mirror looks as young as she feels inside.

These are the extraordinary moments we live for. At Grand River Eye Care, we change lives through innovative eye care.

Children's myopia

Child eyes

Is your child’s prescription getting worse and worse? It’s more than an inconvenience, it vastly increases the likelihood of vision-threatening diseases such as macular degeneration developing later in life. Myopia control can effectively slow and even halt the progression, significantly mitigating these risks.

Scleral lenses

Ever been told you can’t wear contacts? Do you find regular contacts unbearable? Scleral lenses aren’t like ordinary contacts. They are suitable for keratoconus and other conditions involving irregular corneas, as well as for athletes and those suffering from severe dry eye.

Dry eyes

Top 5 Tips for Managing Eye Allergies This Spring

Spring may be in the air, but for allergy sufferers, so is pollen, pet dander, mold, and dust. These airborne allergens can trigger uncomfortable reactions such as watery eyes, coughing, sneezing, congestion, and sinus pain.

Children at school

School and vision: Two important partners

If you notice changes in your child’s schoolwork, behaviour with friends or in sports or other after-school activities, it may be time to schedule an eye exam. You’ll want to be sure that your kids have all the tools they need to succeed in school and beyond.

Did you know that anyone with type 1 or type 2 diabetes can develop diabetic retinopathy? At first, diabetic retinopathy may cause no symptoms or only mild vision problems, but eventually it can cause changes in nearsightedness, farsightedness, and lead to blindness.
