Dr. Maxwell Bochner founded the Bochner Eye Institute in 1929, making it Canadas oldest, most established eye care facility. This year is the 95th anniversary, a true milestone in Canadian medicine.

A proud history of excellence in Toronto eye care.

Since our beginning in 1929, the Bochner Eye Institute has been a leader in eye care, diagnostic and opthalmological procedures. Over the years our laser eye surgeons in Toronto, Scarborough and Unionville have contributed a great deal toward pioneering breakthrough treatments – so today we are able to provide the very highest level of patient care possible.

The founder of the Bochner Eye Institute, Dr. Maxwell Bochner was renowned among colleagues, near and far, as a formidable leader and compassionate surgeon. He toiled tirelessly to constantly advance the state-of-the-art in eye care, a role that was enthusiastically adopted by Dr. Harold Stein when he began practising with Dr. Bochner in 1966, after completing his residency at the Mayo Clinic. The late Dr. Harold Stein went on to change the ophthalmology landscape with advances in implantable lenses for cataract patients and ultimately became one of the first surgeons in Canada to perform refractive surgery.
