Canadian winter is upon us! This cold, dry winter weather often causes dry skin, but it can also make our eyes dry. Many people suffer from Dry Eye Syndrome without realizing that this is the cause of their symptoms. This is especially true in the winter months when the cold air holds less moisture.


Thank you for choosing us to be a Milton’s Choice Winner. We are honoured!

OAKLEY  is arriving at Martin Street Optometry in September! We are thrilled to offer this line of eyewear to our patients.
