All of the staff at Ajax Family Eye Care gave my family incredible care and attention - from my kids through to my mom. With eye exams to selecting glasses, they answered all of our questions with so much detail and patience. They provide a comfortable and safe environment. Dr. Gupta is incredible with kids - she was able to do a thorough exam with such ease even with the little busy bodies that they can be. I highly recommend them for your family - from the little ones right through to grandparents! Thank you for all your care!

Dr. Nelly Tieu comes to Ajax Family Eye Care with an Honours Bachelor of Science in Biomedical Sciences and Doctor of Optometry from the University of Waterloo where she graduated on the Dean's Honours List. She is a member of the College of Optometrists of Ontario, Ontario Association of Optometrists and the Canadian Association of Optometrists. She specializes in Dry Eye treatment and Contact Lens Fitting. Dr. Tieu was born in Toronto and raised in Markham and was drawn to become an eye doctor from an early age. She was always interested in health care and was particularly fascinated about optometry whenever she had her eyes checked growing up. What drew her into optometry was that you could tell the general health of a patient just by looking at their eyes. Her favorite patient story comes from early in her career: “I had a patient come in with pain in his eye, he had been doing some welding and got a metal foreign body in that eye which was treated at the hospital. During the exam, I discovered that he had a metal foreign body in his other eye as well, which he did not know about because he did not feel it. I was able to remove it and provide treatment to help with the pain and healing of both eyes. The patient was glad that he had come in for a more thorough check and avoided any complications with having metal left in his eye.” Outside of work she enjoys playing board games, snowboarding and cheering on the Toronto Blue Jays and Toronto Maple Leafs with her family and friends.

              My family has been going to Ajax Family Eye Care for several years and we have always had a really great experience. More recently, my son had some concerning visual issues and Dr. Patel saw him right away and was not only extremely knowledgeable, but explained everything to us so clearly and laid out a clear plan and follow-up. In healthcare I often feel like I have to ask a million questions to understand what the concerns are and figure out what to do next. In this case, it was nice to have it all so clearly explained to me. It's so nice having an optometrist I can trust and really rely on!

              I would highly recommend the Ajax family Eye care. Dr. Patel and Dr. Gupta and highly qualified eye doctors. They try to understand the root cause of patients problem first and then suggest and appropriate treatment. Dr. Patel checked my eyesight and handled all my questions related to my vision. Dr. Gupta has consistently helped me with eye related issues even over phone. They both have very good knowledge. They are 100% trustable. The eye exercises, treatment and medicine they suggested helped me a lot. I am very happy with my entire experience.

              My mom and younger siblings went to Ajax Family Eye Care, they loved the experience and said the optometrists were so friendly and professional! They enjoyed the entire vibe, it was warm and neat and welcoming. It was their first time and they plan to go there for all their check-ups moving forward.

              We recently went in for a family check up and Dr. Patel was amazing with our little ones. Our girls are normally very scared and anxious around health care workers but he was able to put them at ease and do all the exercises necessary. He was very patient and also answered all our questions thoroughly. We were impressed by his knowledge and that he helped us understand all our options. Thank you for a wonderful experience and we will definitely be back!

              We recently switched to Ajax Family Eye Care and are so glad we did. Dr. Patel was patient and provided great explanations to all our questions, and the staff are great. We didn't feel nickel and dime'd in any way - and are so happy with the service and the glasses and contacts we purchased with their help.
