I’m a therapeutically-registered optometrist licensed to treat eye disease such as glaucoma and I’ve practised in both England and Canada. My philosophy is all about education and prevention, and I like to make the eye “exam” an enjoyable and informative experience. I believe that your appointment should be an open dialogue between doctor and patient without any barriers. I hold a special interest in dry eye management and I see myself as a preserver of eye health before anything else.
I graduated from University of Waterloo School of Optometry and Vision Science in 2018. While in school I had the opportunity to work in Waterloo, Calgary, and Pinellas Park, Florida, as well as volunteer in Chisinau, Moldova with Volunteer Optometric Services to Humanity.
I’m thrilled to be back in the city I was raised in and I’m excited to bring my skillset and passion for eyes to the Dresden family. I have a special interest in contact lenses and dry eye management. My goal is every patient who sits in my chair not only receives exceptional care, but also leaves their exam a little more knowledgeable.
I’m fluent in English and conversationally fluent in Vietnamese.
Graduating from the University of Toronto and the New England College of Optometry, Dr. Pelia is currently licensed with the College of Optometrists of Ontario and an active member of the Optometry Association of Ontario.
Dr. Pelia is familiarized with a wide range of optometric specialities from contact lenses, glaucoma management, binocular vision training and pediatric care. However, her focus and passion throughout school was heavily ocular disease focused. Dr. Pelia has done her rotations through some of America's most prestigious hospitals including Boston Medical Center and the Veterans Hospital in Buffalo New York and is keen to bring her experiences and strong knowledge base back to her patients in Ontario.
The most important thing for Dr. Pelia during your eye exam is that you walk away with a clear understanding of your eye health. She gives each patient their due time in the exam chair and encourages questions about your ocular health at each step of the exam.
Dr. Pelia is actively learning French but can conduct an eye exam in English, Punjabi, Hindi and Spanish at this time!
