Dr. Courtney Fan grew up in Mississauga, Ontario and graduated with a Bachelor in Biotechnology/Chartered Accountancy, Masters of Accounting, and Doctor of Optometry from the University of Waterloo. She is fluent in both English and Mandarin, Chinese.
Dr. Fan was exposed to a wide array of ocular diseases with particular emphasis on glaucoma treatment and management on her clinical rotation in Salt Lake City, Utah. She enjoys practicing full-scope optometry with a special interest in the treatment of glaucoma, contact lens, and pediatrics.
During her optometric career, Dr. Fan founded the first Private Practice Optometry Club at the University of Waterloo and was awarded the VSP Practice Excellence Award for her exceptional work in promoting private practice optometry. She also received the North American Student Challenge Award for her outstanding fundraising efforts for Optometry Giving Sight, an organization dedicated to improving eye care in underprivileged communities.
Dr. Fan has a passion for volunteer work and strongly believes in giving back to the community. She went on two mission trips to Moldova in 2016 and Jamaica in 2018 where she completed comprehensive eye examinations and treated a variety of rare ocular diseases. When she is not busy working at the clinic, you can find her playing the piano, skiing, traveling, or enjoying her time with her friends and family. She recently moved to Tillsonburg and is looking forward to providing quality eye care to this lovely community!
