Dr. Melissa Furfaro — practicing full-time in Guelph
We are excited to welcome Dr. Melissa Furfaro back to our practice! Melissa spent some time working here during her clinical internship in optometry school – but after having practiced in Nova Scotia for the past few years, she is excited to be back in Guelph and is working full-time at our clinic now. Dr. Furfaro will also be taking over the care of patients who previously saw Dr. Kelly Sirbovan – as Dr. Sirbovan has joined a practice in her hometown of Milton and will no longer be seeing patients at Edinburgh Optometry Clinic. Dr. Furfaro has evening and weekend appointment times available — please contact our front reception desk to book an appointment! Read Dr. Furfaro’s full bio here.
EYE SEE EYE LEARN under way for school year 2014-2015!
In partnership with the Ontario Association of Optometrists and the Ontario Ministry of Health, Edinburgh Optometry Clinic is proud to be one of the local optometry offices involved in the Eye See Eye Learn program. The goal of this program is to have every child entering Junior Kindergarten undergo a comprehensive eye exam at an optometrist’s office during their JK year.
An added bonus of this program is any child requiring prescription eyeglasses will be eligible for one FREE pair of eyeglasses through the Eye See Eye Learn program.
Any child born in the calendar year 2010 can participate in this program – you simply need a valid Ontario Health Card, and you must bring your child in for an eye exam anytime after July 1st.
For further information, either call our office or visit: www.EyeSeeEyeLearn.ca
Edinburgh Optometry Clinic featured in the 2012 Guelph Sustainability Report
Guelph Hydro released its 2012 Sustainability Report earlier this year – and Edinburgh Optometry Clinic was featured in this publication for its project to replace halogen bulbs in a large number of fixtures throughout the office with newer LED high effeciency light bulbs. More details about this project are outlined in the report (see page 36 in the following link — CLICK HERE to open a PDF of the full report).
FOR SALE (in-office)
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!
The latest technology to assess infant and toddler vision!
Our office is equipped with the PlusOptix pediatric autorefracting system which allows us to more accurately examine the vision and refractive state of infants and toddlers. This new technology is available immediately and is being used as part of the comprehensive eye examination on your child – fully OHIP covered with a valid Ontario Health Card!
To find out more about this exciting technology, book an appointment for your child! The Canadian Association of Optometrists recommends early eye examinations for children starting at 6 months of age, then at 2 1/2 years, and then yearly while the child is school-aged.
