About The Bochner Eye Institute in Toronto
A proud history of excellence in Toronto eye care.
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. 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.
85 years of experience. And counting.
Together, our medical directors – Dr. Harold Stein, Dr. Albert Cheskes, and Dr. Raymond Stein – represent several decades of experience as Canada’s leading ophthalmologists.
Today they regularly treat patients from around the world, including many optometrists and ophthalmologists. Your safety, comfort and care is assured by the skill of our doctors and the modern technology in our clinics.
