Welcome Dr. Chelsea Bray to Edinburgh Optometry Clinic
We are excited to announce that Dr. Chelsea Bray will be joining the Edinburgh Optometry Clinic team! She will starting with us in mid-September. We are now booking appointments for Dr. Bray – as always, new patients are welcome.
Dr. Chelsea Bray graduated in 2014 from the University of Waterloo School of Optometry, where she then completed a post-graduate residency program in Cornea and Contact Lenses. Prior to that, she also received her Honours Bachelor of Health Science degree from the University of Ottawa in 2010. Dr. Bray is originally from the small town of Barry’s Bay, ON, in the Ottawa Valley.
Dr. Bray is passionate about all aspects of optometric care and enjoys seeing patients of all ages. She has a special interest in fitting specialty contact lenses, including rigid gas permeable and scleral lenses. During her optometric training, Dr. Bray completed an ocular disease rotation in Baltimore, MD, where she gained experience managing conditions of the anterior and posterior eye. She has participated in two eye care clinics in developing countries, including Ecuador and India, and she hopes to continue participating in volunteer eye care abroad in the future.
In her spare time, Dr. Bray enjoys teaching and playing piano, playing hockey, travelling, and spending time with her furry companion, Izzie.
October is Eye Health Month – World Sight Day Challenge
For the month of October we draw particular focus on the importance of eye health in the overall scope of eye care. Healthy eyes are essential in the maintenance of good vision over your lifetime. In Ontario, access to excellent eye care is something many people take for granted. Your local optometrist, including our staff doctors at Edinburgh Optometry Clinic, are eager and happy to examine your eyes for a general eye exam and eye health check-up. If you have any questions about the health aspects of your eye exam, please ask away!
The World Sight Day Challenge is a campaign coordinated by Optometry Giving Sight to raise funds for projects that provide vision care, local training and infrastructure support for people who are blind or vision impaired simply because they don’t have access to an eye exam and a pair of glasses. Children are especially vulnerable. Providing vision correction to a school-age child can literally transform their entire life.
Our practice will raise funds for the World Sight Day Challenge by collecting voluntary donations from our patients during the month of October. A big thank you to everyone who helped make our annual car wash a huge success – it started out rainy, but that didn’t keep you away! Thank you! Please join us in helping to give sight to people in need by scheduling your next appointment during October or just come in to make a donation.
Eye See… Eye Learn Program 2016
Do you have a child born in 2012 who is starting Junior Kindergarten this September? If so, start them off on the right foot with an eye-exam! Your child may qualify for a free pair of glasses through the Eye See…Eye Learn Program. Children 19 years of age or younger in Ontario are eligible for an annual eye exam covered under OHIP.
The Ontario Association of Optometrists (OAO) recognizes the important link between eye health and learning, and recommends comprehensive eye examinations for all children entering kindergarten. The Eye See…Eye Learn program will help make sure our kindergarten students get the best start to learning. For more information about the program you can call our office, or consult http://www.optom.on.ca/OAO/ESEL/AboutESEL.aspx. Call our office to book an appointment!
Eye Foods FOR SALE
We have a number of copies of the fantastic book, EYE FOODS at our clinic. Written by two Canadian optometrists, this book is filled with great information and an approach to healthy eating that supports good eye health over the years! This is a great resource for anyone interested in general health and especially EYE health – and would be particularly important to read for anyone diagnosed with, or who has a family member with macular degeneration. Be sure to check out the display copy when you are at the clinic!
