Dr. Wong has always had a passion for health care and takes great pride in providing quality eye care for her patients. She graduated from the University of Waterloo earning both her B.Sc. in Biomedical Sciences and Doctor of Optometry Degree with Honours.
She also has a tremendous passion for travel. In her career she has been lucky enough to have combined the two passions in her life. Dr. Wong has had the opportunity to travel with ICare International and provide eye care in Chile and Peru. In this environment, she has experienced and treated all degrees of dry eye. Dry eye affects such a large population around the world and we are lucky enough have the resources to treat this, often debilitating, condition.
Dr. Wong has completed internships at Houston Eye Associates and Alberta Sports Vision. At these medical clinics, she was working side by side with cataract and glaucoma specialists. As well, gaining invaluable experience in diagnosing and treating ocular injuries. She is also highly skilled in fitting any type of prescription with contact lenses.
To keep up to date with cutting edge technology and advancements in eye care, she regularly attends continuing education with the British Columbia Association of Optometry as well as the American Academy of Optometry.
