Innovation is in our DNA

Whether it’s surgical innovations or advancements in processes, technologies, services or products – innovation is at the very heart and soul of our culture. The values, beliefs, and principles that guide our every decision and action, are displayed in every employee’s approach and attitude in all they do. Our belief in continuous improvement means we’re never satisfied with anything being less than it can be.

Catalyst to WOW

We’re not just patient focused, we’re patient obsessed. We turn every patient touchpoint into an opportunity to wow. Punctuated by the final wow – their experience. By viewing the journey through the lens of our patients, we surpass expectations by paying personal attention to the smallest of details. We earn trust by always making suggestions and decisions based on what’s best for them.

Expertise unleashed

When knowledge, skills and experience aren’t constrained by an antiquated approach to medicine and patient care, anything is possible. Progress is unleashed, free to discover new and better ways of doing things. Not only do we harness some of the most accomplished, top surgeons in the country, we liberate their talents and expertise. By equipping them with the most cutting-edge technology in the industry, we provide world-class vision correction.

Authentic social responsibility

Without action and authenticity, social responsibility is meaningless. We chose medicine so we could help care for people. This includes the planet and those less fortunate. We’re committed to environmental awareness by making low-impact, earth-friendly choice – selecting green alternatives whenever possible and reducing our carbon footprint. We also volunteer in third-world countries to help those in need, having operated/assisted in over 500 surgeries to date in six developing countries. These values, beliefs, and principles guide our every decision and actions, reflecting an unwavering commitment to always do what’s right – for our patients and our planet.

Acknowledging our past and the indigenous lands on which we stand

As ophthalmologists and optometrists, we are privileged to care for and change the lives of our patients every day by providing visual freedom. As a proud Canadian organization, Lumea is grateful for the opportunity to practice our craft on Indigenous territories. We acknowledge that our Vaughan location is situated in the Territory and Treaty 13 lands of the Mississaugas of the Credit First Nation and the traditional territory of the Huron-Wendat and the Haudenosaunee.

We are committed to using our platform to advocate for and advance the rights of Indigenous peoples.
