Born in Niagara Falls, Dr. Harold A. Stein opened his first practice in Scarborough in 1958.


Recognized by the medical community for his expertise in cataract surgery, corneal transplants, contact lenses and refractive surgery, he pioneered the development of the intraocular lens for cataract surgery. He was also one of the first in North America to use this procedure and to practice laser vision correction.


A graduate of the University of Toronto (U of T) Medical School, he’s been a full clinical professor at U of T’s Facility of Medicine since 1969, been on the faculty at Toronto’s Centennial College since 1965 and spent 35 years as Chief of Ophthalmology at Scarborough General Hospital.


A dedicated volunteer, Dr. Stein has performed delicate eye surgery in third-world countries where blindness runs rampant. He’s also worked with Dr. Maxwell Bochner of The Bochner Eye Institute in Toronto for more than 10 years.


He’s received the Lifetime Membership Award from the Ontario Medical Association, the Scarborough General Hospital Board of Governors’ Chairman’s Award, the 200 Bi-Centennial Scarborough Civic Award of Merit and the Scarborough Civic Award of Merit.
