Welcome to Downtown Eye Care and The Contact Lens Department.

Our office has been providing eye care alongside the Downtown Ophthalmologists for over 40 years. Having Optometric and Ophthalmological care in one location provides our patients with an efficient and streamlined connection between professions.

Gordon Taylor of the Contact Lens Department has recruited Dr. Neil Haney to help expand the services of the office. For your convenience, Downtown Eye Care has merged with the Contact Lens Department to expand its scope of eye care.

Although our office focuses on contact lens fittings, we are also set up to handle a number of ocular concerns such as keratoconus, glaucoma, diabetic retinopathy, and macular degeneration.

We now provide eye examinations that include getting an ocular health assessment and an updated spectacle prescription.

Downtown Eye Care receives referrals for complex contact lens fittings from Montreal, Kingston and throughout Ottawa. Both Dr. Haney and Gordon Taylor enjoy fitting complex, custom contact lenses, which include specialty rigid gas permeable, hybrid lenses (Duette®, SynergEyes ClearKone®, UltraHealth®), and scleral lenses (Onefit 2.0®, Onefit MED®, Zenlens®).  These lenses have proven to be very useful in the management of dry eye (e.g. Sjogren’s Syndrome), corneal irregularities (e.g. keratoconus, pellucid marginal degeneration, post-RK corneal ectasia, post-corneal transplants) and high prescriptions (e.g. high astigmatism).

As the office evolves, our values and traditions remain.

We look forward to working with you!
