He is excited to be a member of the distinguished team at North Toronto Eye Clinic, to serve the growing eye care needs of the community where he was raised. As an Eye Physician and Surgeon, he has the expertise to manage a comprehensive range of ocular conditions, with a particular focus on medical retina, including diabetic retinopathy, macular degeneration, retinal artery and vein occlusions and peripheral retinal disease. Dr. Yau is a refractive cataract surgeon at North Toronto Eye Surgical Centre out of Queensway Health Centre. He speaks English and Cantonese.

Kind words from our patients: 

I am writing to let readers know how absolutely happy I am with my cataract surgery! 

I have worn glasses since I was 8, contact lenses since age 16 and prior to surgery, my left eye was -15 and my right eye -12. Now thanks to the amazing Dr. Gary Yau, I have perfect vision at 20/20. I would also like to thank Counselor Becca and the nurses and technicians, all of whom are very skilled, caring, friendly people.

I highly recommend North Toronto Eye Care!
