Dr. Jiachang (Iris) Shen

Dr. Shen received her optometry degree in Hong Kong with first class honours. She then worked at Hong Kong Polytechnic University. In addition to providing optometry services to the public, she tutored clinical labs for the university’s optometry program and supervised a student service trip to rural China providing eye care with free glasses from donations. She has a special interest in the control of nearsightedness and the management of ocular diseases. She received residency training in contact lenses in Hong Kong, and completed the International Optometry Bridging Program at the University of Waterloo. Dr. Shen is board certified in both Canada and Hong Kong.

Dr. Shen loves her profession and devotes herself to promoting eye care in the community. She has been actively participating in various community vision screenings, including the Special Olympics, since she was an optometry student. In office, she always strives to demonstrate changes in prescription and explain any diagnoses in detail.

In her free time, she dog sits for friends. She also likes to travel. Her favorite activity is snorkeling, where she can swim with tropical fish and turtles. She also enjoys cooking and experimenting with recipes from all over the world.

Dear Patients,

Ontario will be entering LOCKDOWN on December 26 @12:01AM by order of the Government of Ontario for at least 28 days. Please note that medical care including Optometry services are NOT impacted by these changes.

We will continue to operate following Public Health protocols including screening, PPE, handwashing & sanitizing as well as maintaining physical distancing where possible.

We are open throughout the holiday season (Closed Dec25-27 and Dec31-Jan3) for orders, with very limited in person care. We will be open for full care on Jan 4. We will reserve two urgent care appointments each day during the province-wide lockdown to help reduce the number of eye related emergency room visits for our current patients.

If you are experiencing an eye emergency (loss of vision, double vision, distortion to vision, ocular pain, photosensitivity or other visual symptoms) please contact the office at 519 822 2710 for advice before presenting to the emergency room.
