Ophthalmology at Providence Health Care is a leading innovator and service provider of eye care in BC. Surgeons at Mount Saint Joseph Hospital perform 5,000 cataract procedures per year, more than any other hospital in the province, and about 90 per cent of BC's corneal transplants. Retinal surgery and glaucoma are also specialties. The Eye Clinic at St. Paul's concentrates on macular degeneration, Canada's leading cause of blindness, and the eyesight-related complication of diabetes.
