Community Outreach Services

This service provides the most complete eye care possible to the often under-served individuals who cannot reach clinics in the usual way. We make regular visits to several institutions such as long term care homes, complex care hospitals and health clinics for the homeless and street youth in the greater Toronto area. We use portable instrumentation to provide comprehensive vision and eye health examinations and to dispense eye-wear and low vision aids when necessary. We collaborate with the entire health care team and families in the care of these patients. We regret that at this time we cannot provide this service on an individual ‘house call’ basis.

Testimonials

Reviews From Our Satisfied Patients

  • "We use Anderson Optometry for all of our family’s vision needs. Recently, we had to have our youngest fitted for new glasses and he made the experience fun for her and informative for us. We know Dr. Anderson will always take good care of our family’s eye care and that’s why we wouldn’t go to anywhere else."

  • "Dr. Anderson and his staff are so patient and friendly. Dr. Anderson prescribed me glasses and I had the toughest time picking out frames. They didn’t rush, but instead made helpful suggestions and now I have an awesome pair of frames, not to mention the fact that I can see ten times better than before. You guys are the best!"
