The IRIS Ophthalmology Clinic of Laval opened its doors in 1998. Since its opening, ophthalmologist Dr. Martin Boileau has played an active role in the clinic’s success. Ophthalmologist Dr. Francis Roy joined the team in 2017.
Every year, our surgeons participate in various international conferences on the research and development of refractive surgery. They are passionate about integrating state-of-the-art techniques and equipment into their practice to provide you high-quality health care in accordance with high standards of comfort and safety.
Our ophthalmologists, assisted by a team of qualified optometrists, opticians, and nurses, are committed to personally answering all of your questions. They are responsible for determining if you meet the safety criteria for surgery and advise you on the choice best suited to your needs and lifestyle.
Dr. Boileau’s personal and professional accomplishments well illustrate the values that drive him, namely hard work and determination.
Dr. Boileau obtained his PhD in Medicine from University of Montreal in 1991 and a Specialized Studies Diploma in Ophthalmology in 1996 with a complementary Oculoplasty and tear ducts training from McGill University.
His passion for mountaineering allowed him to travel around the world and to summit Mount Everest on 14 May 2004.
Dr. Roy, surgeon at the IRIS Ophthalmology Clinic and founder of the ChirurgiVision Clinic in Trois-Rivières, is a pioneer in the field of refractive surgery.
He performs refractive surgery—specifically LASIK, PRK, and intraocular-lens implantation—to correct vision problems such as nearsightedness, farsightedness, astigmatism, and presbyopia, as well as cataract surgery.
Since the very outset of his practice, he has been committed to the satisfaction, safety, and well-being of his patients.
Passionate about great vintages, his wine cellar has even earned the envy of the SAQ [Société des alcools du Québec – Québec Liquor Commission].
