Having keratoconus my eye condition was deteriorating, being from London England I was looking for a Contact Lens Specialist in Toronto that could understand both my medical condition & anxiety for managing it. At Stephen Sanger’s I was treated like royalty, not only did I have great fitting lenses but after seven years of failed attempts (by previous Optometrists) a post corneal graft, Stephen fitted my left eye with a state-of-the-art scleral contact lens giving a perfect 20/20 vision!! Something I had given-up hope on. Stephen is more than any health professional I’ve ever visited, he’s knowledgeable, compassionate and genuinely concerned with improving your vision, something only few Professionals focus on! I am grateful to him and his team for taking me on as a patient and endeavour to keep this relationship going for years to come! Thank you for improving the quality of my vision and taking great care of me

Quite near-sighted with an astigmatism from birth, my childhood experiences were limited by the myriad challenges of wearing heavy glasses. At the age of 15, after saving minimum wages, I embarked on the quest of the better vision without glasses promised by contact lenses. I had the very good fortune of referral to Stephen Sanger. After an initial wear adjustment, I could finally see the world like others with perfect eyesight and no glasses! I fully recall my elation and deep gratitude! Here we are 40 years later and I continue to experience great contact lens vision correction from Stephen Sanger and his staff! Despite my many provincial relocations involving extensive travel at times, I have always remained loyal to Stephen Sanger's very affordable, reliable care and expertise to address my changing eyes. A sincere heart-felt thank you, Stephen, to you and your staff, for your dedicated care that has enabled my clear vision with excellent contact lens service for a life-time!


THE EXTRA MILE Your Father Fred, went way beyond the extra mile. I cherish those memories shared with him. It’s only right that I refer to the hierarchy of seniority: therefore, John went that extra mile many times over the years. Dave also is superb and is up there with your Father and John. That leaves you Stephen whom I hold in the highest esteem. I’ve been so blessed being under the excellent care of the Sanger family for over fifty years. Your Father was the absolute BEST, such a kind, caring, competent human being. You all have followed in his footsteps reflecting those very same characteristics. Thank you for all the years of your dedication & devotion to me and your patients. With much gratitude & appreciation.
