Founded in 2013 by Dr. Michael Shin, the entire team at EyeWorld Optometry are proud to offer personalized eye care for families living in the Thornhill and surrounding areas.  EyeWorld Optometry’s goal is to provide complete eye care solutions that are customized to your lifestyle. Our bottom line is you: our healthy, confident, and happy patient.


Dr. Michael Shin is an Optometrist in Thornhill providing complete eye care services for the surrounding communities.

Dr. Shin received bachelor of science degree in 1996 at University of Waterloo and obtained his doctor of optometry degree in 2000 at New England College of Optometry in Boston, Massachusetts.

Dr. Shin was the primary optometrist at Scarborough Eye Associates for the past decades.  He has been working together with renowned surgeons including Dr. Jordan Cheskes, Dr. David Assad from Scarborough Eye Associates and Dr. Raymond Stein from Bochner Eye Institute.    

Dr. Shin has started his own practice in 2013.  As a licensed optometrist, Dr. Shin provides exams, diagnoses, and treatments of all disorders that affect the eye or vision. 

He has a special interest in treatment options for Myopia.  He believes the Myopia is a pandemic disease in the modern digital age.  High myopia is a leading factor for many types of eye disease, i.e. Retinal detachment, macular degeneration and glaucoma.  

Dr. Shin works hard to stay current on the latest advances in eye health and vision care and regularly attends continuing education seminars and advanced training courses. It is because of Dr. Shin's dedication to continuing education that our Thornhill patients receive the most modern and progressive vision care available.



At EyeWorld Optometry, we believe great eye care begins with regular comprehensive eye exams. Most eye diseases develop without symptoms, making their detection and prevention extremely important.

We offer SAME DAY services for specialty examinations such as glaucoma/macular evaluations. Our eye exams incorporate the latest technology to detect disease and conditions that other exam might miss.



i.Scription® technology

Using the Zeiss iProfiler Plus, we are able to generate more accurate prescriptions for your corrective lenses. The iProfiler takes topographical map of your eye for precise and fingerprint-like prescription to achieve optimal eye glasses lens, RGP contact lens and Orthokeratology(Ortho-K) lenses.

Nidek Autoflourescent OCT (Optical Coherence Tomography)

is used for early detection of sight threatening eye conditions like retinal diseases, detachments, holes, retinal thinning, optic nerve disease, precancerous lesions, macular degeneration, and diabetic retinopathy.

Zeiss Perimeter

is used to detect visual field loss due to ocular disease, including glaucoma and brain abnormalities.

iCare tonometer

The new iCare tonometer was developed by a doctor in Finland as an easy and patient-friendly method of measuring eye pressure. It uses unique “rebound” technology, in which a very light-weight tip is used to make momentary contact with the cornea. Anesthesia is not needed since the touch of the tip is so gentle and the measurement so quick that it is barely noticed by the patient. And there’s no loud startling noise to make you jump, either!



The staff is very helpful and willing to take time to ensure that you are adequately supported. Amazing customer experience!
