Our History

The Montreal Bellevue ophthalmology clinic was founded in 2003 by Dr. Paul Harasymowycz, a glaucoma specialist at Maisonneuve-Rosemont hospital. The Bellevue ophthalmology clinics offer a wide range of ophthalmic care. In addition to general ophthalmology services, doctors at our clinics monitor and treat glaucoma, retina, cornea, cataract surgery, chalazion removal and oculoplasty. Located in the Hochelaga-Maisonneuve area of Montreal since 2005, the parent clinic is rapidly expanding, with a branch opening in Laval in 2010 and another in Longueuil in 2012.

Dr. Paul Harasymowycz also founded the Montreal Glaucoma Institute in 2004 at the Montreal clinic. This organization, led by specialists in glaucoma, combines clinical care, teaching and research. The institute also hosts fellowship students, conducts research projects and provides specialized services for patients with glaucoma.

Today, there are 43 ophthalmologists, 80 employees at the three sites, which handle more than 70,000 appointments annually.
