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.

Dr. Arshinoff’s areas of special interest are primarily cataract and refractive surgery, which make up about 80% of his practice. He is the author of over 230 peer-reviewed publications and chapters in 18 medical textbooks, is on the editorial board of five peer reviewed ophthalmology journals and is an active reviewer for many journals. He has lectured widely and maintains an ongoing research commitment.

Dr. Arshinoff was among the first in Canada to perform photorefractive keratectomy (PRK) and phototherapeutic keratectomy (PTK) (1991). He 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).

Dr. Arshinoff is the designer of the Ontario Medical Association - Canadian National Institute for the Blind (OMA-CNIB) Mobile Medical Eye Care Unit (MECU), and is the medical director of the MECU program.
