Herzig Eye Institute is committed to serving you in the safest way possible. Our centres in Toronto and Ottawa are open for consultations, diagnostics, laser vision correction and laser cataract procedures. Everyone who accesses our centres must pass our COVID-19 screening prior to entry.

In addition, all staff and surgeons are either double or triple vaccinated. We have not deviated from our strict safety protocols established prior to vaccinations which include, but are not limited to: physical distancing, requirement for all personnel and persons entering the space to be masked, frequent sanitizing of hands and surfaces, and the use of Surgically Clean Air units throughout the space.

We are PREPARED, you are PROTECTED. Watch our Patient Safety Video to learn more about the safety measures at Herzig Eye Institute.


March 2022 Update: During this unprecedented time, Herzig Eye Institute has taken a number of steps to help stop the spread of COVID-19 and ensure our clinics are safe for patients and staff.
