My boyfriend has some eye issues and hasn't been to the eye doctor in at least 10 years. What kind of doctor do we make an appointment with in Ontario, Canada?

Said boyfriend was born with cataracts, had surgery in the seventies for them which did not work well. I'm not sure of the details. He also has noticeable astigmatism and bifocals. He's 45, if that makes any difference.
He is not looking forward to getting his eyes checked out for the first time in so long, but understands that it is necessary.
My question is, what kind of eye doctor should he make an appointment with considering these issues? Are there really different kinds of eye doctor? In addition, if anyone has an eye doctor they love in Brampton/Mississauga area, recommendations would be awesome as well!
Thanks in advance, MeFites.
