welcome to the Galen Eye Centre

Welcome to the Galen Eye Centre (GEC).  We provide primary eye care and specialize in the management of glaucoma and cataracts.   Our team strives to provide excellence in ophthalmic care.  Our goal is to detect disease early and to enhance vision.  We respect that each person has a unique circumstance and set of values and we make management goals and treatment plans with this in mind.

As part of the Queen’s University Faculty, I have the responsibility and privilege of training future Ophthalmologists.  As such, at the GEC Ophthalmology Residents are part of the management team.  They are amongst the brightest and most driven medical doctors and are the future of this field.  With their help Kingston is fortunate to have Ophthalmology coverage 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.   With your help they are gaining vital experience so that this field will continue to be properly served in Canada.

Clinical Research is an integral part of the GEC’s mandate.  Some of this research has to do with diagnostic equipment, some with medical management and others with surgical treatments.   We are striving to advance the diagnosis, progression detection and management of glaucoma.  If there are studies that may be of benefit to you we will bring these to your attention or as we start to display the research that is ongoing and you wonder if it applies to you, please feel free to ask.

At the Galen Eye Centre, the technicians, administrative staff and doctors strive to work as a team to best manage your ocular health and to provide compassionate care.
