Meet Your Optometrist

Dr. Mei-Ling Chan

Dr. Mei-Ling Chan was born and spent her early years on the tropical island of Penang, Malaysia. At the age of twelve, she made the trek to Canada. Dr. Chan attended the University of Waterloo, where she graduated with a Bachelor of Science in 1998 and Doctor of Optometry in 2002. She completed an externship in Atlanta before practicing in Yarmouth, Nova Scotia, for two years.

She then moved to Barrie, Ontario, where she and her husband started a family. She now considers Barrie home.

She is a member of the Ontario Association of Optometrists and Canadian Association of Optometrists. She has also served as a clinical assessor for the Canadian Assessment of Competence in Optometry, which tests the skills and aptitude of an optometrist prior to entering practice in Canada. Dr. Chan has also participated in various standard-setting workshops. These workshops contribute to the development and maintenance of the competence assessments.

Dr. Chan enjoys reading optometry journals and attending conferences (especially those held in tropical locales during our Canadian winters!) to keep abreast of the continually expanding scope of optometry.

Optometry is more than just checking prescriptions and dispensing glasses. With a barrage of retailers advertising glasses and contact lenses, we lose sight of what we are trying to achieve: healthy eyes that provide us with good, comfortable, clear vision all our lives. Early detection and intervention are crucial in many eye diseases to minimize damage.

“My goal is to provide my patients with the knowledge that will empower them to make good choices regarding the health of their eyes. I look forward to getting started on our partnership.” – Mei-Ling Chan, OD
