Ratings for Dr. Raymond Stein

My experience with Dr. Stein and his staff has been superb and I recommend Dr. Stein and the Bochner Eye Institute wholeheartedly. In June 2012, Dr. Stein performed my successful Lasik surgery and within a very short period of time I had perfect 20/20 vision. I say “successful” because the procedure resulted in me having great distance vision. nfortunately, I also found that post-procedure I required glasses for my near distance vision (2′ to 10′ ). While I was expecting to require reading glasses for reading and computer work, I had not anticipated the need for glasses to be able to have clear vision at the 2′ to 10′ range. Dr. Stein was very clear with me that he was going to ensure that I was 100% happy with my decision to chose Bochner and that once my eyes were absolutely stable and if at that time I was still challenged with the mid-near vision that he would work to resolve my concerns. True to his word, in June 2016 (4 years after the initial surgery) Dr. Stein performed a second procedure to resolve my challenges. Appointments were set with his in-house optometrist and staff to determine if monovision was a viable option for me. It turned out that yes, that was the case. Dr. Stein performed the surgery, I had multiple follow-up checkups to ensure that the results were excellent and everything went great. Not once did Dr. Stein question my concerns or ever mention billing for a second procedure. He is true to his word and he makes it right. I am a extremely happy with Dr. Stein’s work and have nothing but great things to say about him personally and the professionalism of his staff.

Read What Patients are Saying about Laser Surgery
with Dr. Stein

I spent my inheritance on the two things I have always wanted to do, laser eye surgery and fixing my teeth. I did a lot of research and found two great docs; I chose Dr. Stein based on his great reputation and experience. Wow, what a great choice. He and his whole staff were so great. AND I CAN SEE ! The laser surgery was so easy (for me and for him) and I would tell everybody that he is the guy to use to get your eyes done. It was a lot quicker than having my teeth fixed. If you want laser eye surgery, then he’s your guy.

I write this note with immense gratitude for the incredible gift you have given me. You have restored my vision to a perfection that I, at 85 years, never expected. I am able to read, write, drive and function normally again without glasses which I have worn for forty years. With great delight and thanks to you, your staff, and that impressive technology throughout your offices, I feel whole again!

My welcome at the Bochner clinic was warm, efficient and reassuring, thanks to you and all of your very personable staff.

Please accept my heartfelt thanks,

Yours very sincerely,
Susan Walker


Dear Dr. Stein,

Remember me? I’m Cathy Scott’s uncle and you performed cataract surgery on my eyes last September/October. I am thrilled to report complete success. I read every letter on Paul Monk’s chart and declared 20/20 vision!

I cannot thank you enough for the caring and professional way in which I was treated by you and your staff. I am so appreciative of everything you did. Please pass on my thanks.

Everything is now so bright and clear. Living in Muskoka I am assailed by colour and beauty that I can now fully appreciate since you gave me “new eyes”

I wish you and your family all the best for the season.

Patient Testimonial for Dr Raymond Stein

Thank you Dr Raymond Stein for the excellent care you provided for my son Marcus. As an eye care professional I have always felt privileged to have the opportunity to work with you in the co-management of our patients. My own personal experience as your refractive surgery patient only served to enhance that sentiment. When my son asked about LASIK it was with utmost confidence that I introduced him to The Bochner Eye Institute and Dr. Ray Stein. You did not let us down.
The care and level of expertise shown by yourself and your staff was exemplary. The Traynor boys cannot thank you enough.

―Regards, Dr. Martin Traynor

Epithelial Basement Membrane Dystrophy (EBMD) by Dr Raymond Stein

Dr. Raymond Stein of the Bochner Eye Institute wrote the following clinical update. We hope you find it of interest.

EBMD is a common hereditary corneal dystrophy that may result in recurrent corneal erosions and/or blurred vision. Clinical epithelial signs include fingerprint lines, map-like changes or microcysts. If the corneal signs are subtle, it is valuable to instill fluorescein and view with a Cobalt-blue light. With EBMD, the epithelium is irregular and the tear breakup will be abnormal.

If patients have recurrent erosions and they are refractory to hypertonic solutions (Muro 128 5% drops and/or ointment) then a keratectomy can be performed. This procedure involves debridement of the corneal epithelium and polishing of Bowman’s layer with a diamond burr. Eighty-five percent of eyes with this technique will have resolution of their erosions. The procedure can be repeated when necessary.

If patients have glare, halos, or reduced vision secondary to EBMD then a keratectomy can be performed. The epithelium that grows back is usually smoother resulting in improved vision. It usually takes four to six weeks for the best vision to be achieved.

Dr. Raymond Stein and the eye surgeons of Bochner Eye Institute have been proving effective vision correction procedures to patients in Canada and the U.S. for several decades. In fact, the Bochner Eye Institute is among the first facilities in Canada to offer a range of sophisticated treatments, including corneal collagen cross linking for keratoconus, which is performed by Dr. Raymond Stein Toronto patients trust with their eye care needs.
