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

We are open again to provide vision care. While many things have changed since then, one thing has remained the same: our commitment to your health and safety. When we see you at your next appointment, things will be a little different.

We will ask some screening questions before your appointment. You will need an appointment to enter the office for any reason and wear a mask in the office. Appointments will be spaced out to allow for distancing between patients. That might mean less flexibility for scheduling your appointment but is necessary for your safety. Our frame area is different too, with “white glove” frame selection and disinfection of all frames that have been touched. All these procedures are designed to create the safest environment for you, other patients and our team.

As you can imagine, we have a long backlog of patients to reschedule and we will call patients back based on risk and needs. To make an appointment, please call our office at 519-822-2710.

Thank you for your patience and loyalty throughout this ordeal. We value your trust and can’t wait to welcome you back!
