He received his medical degree at Baylor College of Medicine in Houston, Texas, and then attended the University of Toronto for his residency in ophthalmology. He has been in private ophthalmic group practice in Toronto, Canada, since 1980, with academic appointments at the University of Toronto and McMaster University, Hamilton.

Dr. Arshinoff’s areas of special interest are primarily in cataract and refractive surgery. He is the author of over 250 peer-reviewed publications, 24 chapters in medical textbooks, and has lectured globally on techniques of cataract and refractive surgery. He has received numerous honors and awards, including ASCRS film festival awards, national society lectureships, presented named lectures including the Rayner lecture, and was invested with the Queen’s Golden Jubilee Medal in 2002. He is on the editorial board of five peer reviewed ophthalmology journals. He maintains an ongoing research commitment, primarily in simultaneous bilateral cataract surgery (SBCS), antibiotic prophylaxis for intraocular surgery, ophthalmic viscosurgical devices (viscoelastics) and phaco machine design.

Dr. Arshinoff has over 18 years experience in excimer laser refractive surgery. He was among the first in Canada to perform photorefractive keratectomy (PRK) and phototherapeutic keratectomy (PTK) (1991), and was the first in the world to propose and use non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) topically to alleviate the pain of PRK (July 1991).
