Referring Professionals for Vision Therapy and Neuro-Optical Rehabilitation
Thank you for demonstrating an interest in the work we do at Ancaster Family Eyecare’s Vision Therapy Centre.
I would like to take a moment to introduce myself and explain to you how we assist patients with vision-related dysfunctions at our centre.
My name is Dr. Priya Maharaj, and I am a Doctor of Optometry, trained at the University of Waterloo School of Optometry and graduated in 2012. Since then I have practiced full-scope, general Optometry in Whitby, and now in Ancaster. During my studies, I had worked closely with Dr. Debbie Luk at Vision Therapy Calgary’s multiple offices. She is a residency trained Developmental Optometrist who served as a mentor for me to understand and perform Vision Therapy programs in a practical setting. After this training, my interest in behavioral optometry intensified. Since opening my own clinic in Ancaster three years ago, I have developed my skills as a behavioral optometrist by attending several intensive seminars held by the College of Optometrists in Vision Development (COVD) and Optometric Extension Program Foundation (OEPF), to both of which I am an affiliate. Ongoing learning also continues daily, as the research on vision therapy expands.
