Wait times at our clinic are generally substantially shorter than a walk-in clinic or emergency room. Not only that, but we perform the same medical services and procedures that you would receive in a clinic.
Most forms of conjunctivitis respond quickly to treatment. There is no need to suffer through symptoms any longer than you have to. Book an appointment to see us for testing, diagnosis, and treatment.
Conjunctivitis – aka, pink eye or red eye – has a myriad of causes; environmental factors (dust, smoke), allergens (pollen, etc.), chemicals (found in soaps/shampoos, cleaning products, etc.), and pathogens (bacteria/viruses) can all cause conjunctivitis.
Only an Optometrist can properly diagnose certain forms of conjunctivitis, so your safest bet is to come see us.
Symptoms of conjunctivitis include:
Treatment for conjunctivitis is dependent on its cause. Once we have a formalized diagnosis we will be able to treat appropriately.
We are right in the centre of Alliston, by the intersection of Victoria St E and Church St N. Find our location.
Regardless of the cause of your case of conjunctivitis, we can help you manage the symptoms and provide you appropriate next steps.
Treatments include antibiotics (where appropriate), eye drops, and antihistamines (where appropriate).

Since 2004, Dr. Peacock and Dr. Amarnath of NTOC have very capably managed my eye care needs in conjunction with my Ophthalmologist. As a regular patient at their clinic, I can attest to their competence and to their hightech equipment. The NTOC Optometrists have an excellent working relationship with the two Ophthalmologists who have privileges at Stevenson Memorial Hospital. This is so important to their patients who are determined to require the next level of eye care. Their staff are very pleasant, friendly and helpful. NTOC is a great place to entrust your eyes.
Dr. Amarnath and Dr. Peacock have been more than accommodating under both our planned and emergency situations. NTOC always provides flexible options and they are always happy to see us. Each visit is a very positive experience. The services and products they provide are comprehensive, but not high-pressured, and they provide service and guarantees that are much higher than industry standards. We totally enjoy and appreciate being their patients and recommend NTOC without reservation.
When I experienced a serious eye condition in 2006, I was very impressed with the knowledge, expertise, and quick response by Dr. Amarnath and his team at NTOC. I was referred to an eye specialist the very same day, and my follow-up care was thorough and efficient, even to this day. This team works with absolute professionalism, and I would highly recommend them to my family and friends.
I have been a patient of Dr. Peacock since 2002, and find him to be very competent and thorough. Dr.Peacock genuinely listens to any concerns I have about my eyes, and takes the time to enquire with interest about my family. His team is always pleasant, polite and helpful, making me feel very comfortable when I visit the clinic.
I was very impressed with my first visit. From the moment I walked in, the staff was more than friendly and she did her best to explain procedures and tests that would be done today. I am a very nervous eye patient and Dr. Peacock did everything to ease my tensions and explain all procedures. When choosing my glasses, I felt very confident in her suggestions and was very pleased with the time taken to ensure the correct choice and fit. All in all, I am thrilled with my choice of optometrist office. And, I look forward to my next visit. Something I have never experienced before. Thank you.
