Dr. Steven A. Sutton, optometrist (O.D.), obtained his doctorate in optometry from the Université de Montréal in 2011. He was part of the first group of students from the École d'optométrie to intern at the Institut de l'Oeil des Laurentides (IOL).
From the outset, owing to his marked concern for the efficiency of the EIL technological system, Dr. Steven A. Sutton, optometrist, was tasked with improving computerized patient records and setting up the EIL website. A full-time optometrist at the EIL since June 2011, he takes part in the retina, glaucoma, emergency and cataract surgery evaluation clinics, as well as in the ophthalmology research projects.
A member of the Ordre des optométristes du Québec, Dr. Sutton, optometrist, has also passed the Canadian Standard Assessment in Optometry (CSAO).
He hopes that collaboration between ophthalmologists and optometrists will continue to evolve in order to better serve an ever growing number of patients.
