Patient Reviews

  • Really knowledgeable doctors and friendly staff. Dr. Ly really took his time with me to explain an issue with my dry eyes that other clinics have not told me before. He was definitely thorough.He prescribed me treatments like hot compress and told me about various eye drops I could use off the counter to relieve it. I would say it was a really great experience. Definitely recommend for any eye care needs. Oh! And they sell really beautiful glasses!

    Helpful staff, knowledgeable doctors, and a wide range of specialty frames to choose from distinguish St Lawrence Eye Care from other optometry clinics. I always thought I had near perfect vision, but found myself squinting for distance especially while driving. I booked an appointment with Dr. Ly for an eye exam and found out that I indeed could benefit from a new prescription. Dr. Ly was thorough, attentive, and easy-going, which made my experience that much better. Also, kudos to the staff who helped me pick a pair of the Garrett Leight Winward for my frame. I will be definitely be coming back for future eye exams.

    This was by far one of the best and most comprehensive eye exams I have ever had. It actually makes me question what my prior optometrists were doing! I saw Dr. Austin Ly - he is very knowledgeable, professional, patient, and takes the time to explain everything to you, even if you ask the same question twice. His friendly attitude and helpful behaviour is mimicked by his front staff. In addition to the standard eye exam, he has a high-tech retinal scan machine, shows you all of your images, and explains all of the results with you. The office is sleek and stylish with a variety of frames and contacts to choose from. It is conveniently located close to Union and King subway stations. Alternatively, you can park on the street ( if you find a spot), or there is a massive green P parking garage that is a 60 second walk from the office. I highly recommend this optometry clinic and Dr. Ly.
