“I am a qualified Doctor of Optometry in practice within the province of Ontario since 2003. I own and operate a Primary Care Practice and a Specialty Vision Training Clinic. I am a behavioural optometrist which means I consider vision in relation to visual demands such as reading, computer use, learning to read and write, and ensuring that vision is working easily and comfortably. I provide specialized visual assessment and rehabilitation to patients with many visual difficulties, including those with ABI or TBI. I am currently board certified in vision development and vision therapy and hold a fellowship status through the College of Optometrists in Vision Development. I am an active member through the Optometric Extension Program Foundation and Canadian Optometrists in Vision Therapy and Rehabilitation.”
