Dr. Adrienne Tong - Brantford Optometrist
Favourite eye pun: "Why do beekeepers have such beautiful eyes?"
Beauty is in the eye of the bee holder.It is my privilege to provide eye care to the Brantford and Ohsweken communities. I am passionate about helping patients to see their best and educating them about their eye conditions.
I studied at the University of Guelph where I earned my degree in Honours Bachelor of Science in Bio-Medical Science in 2005. During my time there, I received 3 Undergraduate Student Research Awards from the Natural Science and Engineering Council of Canada (NSERC), which gave me the opportunity to work as a student researcher in Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry, and the Department of Human Biology and Nutritional Sciences.
My undergraduate education and research experiences sparked my interest in the relationship between the eye and various systemic diseases such as diabetes. Upon graduation in 2005, I received several awards including an Ontario Graduate Scholarship, allowing me to pursue my research interests at the University of Waterloo, where I completed my Master of Science degree in Vision Science in 2008, while concurrently earning her Doctor of Optometry degree in 2011. In my final year of training, I completed an ocular disease externship at the Lexington Veterans Affairs Medical Center in Kentucky where I gained experience in managing eye diseases and using ocular therapeutics.
Aside from private practice, I also serve as a lab and clinical instructor at the University of Waterloo School of Optometry and Vision Science. I am an active member of the Ontario Association of Optometrists and the Canadian Association of Optometrists, and serve as an examiner for the Internationally Graduated Optometrist Evaluating Exam.
After hours, I enjoy spending time with friends and family, and enjoy social dancing, photography, hiking, and cooking.
