Dr. David Black graduated from York University in 2000 with an Honours Bachelor of Science Degree in Biology and Psychology. He then graduated from the University of Waterloo, School of Optometry in 2004.
Born and raised in Toronto, Dr. Black grew up next door to Dr. Stan Salsberg, the founder of Eyes on Sheppard. Dr. Stan’s family was like a second family to him. Dr. Black was exposed to the profession from a young age, through his “adoptive” Salsberg family, and as a patient needing glasses from the age of 6. His interest in Health sciences and technology as a University student solidified his direction into the profession.
For the past 11 years Dr. Black has also been at the cutting edge of ocular surgical technology through working part-time at the world renowned Bochner Eye Institute, alongside Dr. Ray Stein and Dr. Albert Cheskes. At Bochner, Dr. Black provides post-surgical care for patients who have undergone LASIK and other Refractrive Surgeries, Cataract Surgery, and Corneal Collagen Crosslinking (for the treatment of Keratoconus). During his time there he has gained expertise in the various surgical options available and determining which patients are best suited to each procedure, in addition to managing post surgical issues.
Dr Black has an excellent rapport with children and is an advocate of the importance of children’s eye exams by the age of 3.
