MISSION STATEMENT

“To enhance and improve the gift of vision through personalized care”

History

Dr. Derzko-Dzulynsky started practice in the Etobicoke community in 2000, after graduating from the University of Toronto’s ophthalmology residency program and completing subspecialty training in uveitis at McGill University and the University of Toronto. She began operating under the Vista Eye Centre name in 2007.

In order to pursue her academic interests in ophthalmic research and teaching the next generation of ophthalmologists, Dr. Derzko-Dzulynsky moved her practice to the Kensington Vision and Research Centre in 2014. In 2019, she moved her practice back to the Bloor West community of Toronto, with the goal of bringing her experiences in state-of the art ophthalmic care back to the community where her family grew up, and to be closer to St. Joseph’s Health Centre, which is her main hospital affiliation.

Through Vista Eye Centre, our vision is to:
  • bring like-minded, highly trained specialists,
  • working in state-of-the-art premises
  • equipped with the newest diagnostic equipment and technology,
  • bringing patients, the best of personalized eye care – in their own community.
