Dr. Michelle Baron, a Thornhill native, completed her Bachelor of Science degree with honours at Queen’s University, receiving the gold medal for psychology. While working on her thesis, she was inspired by her research into the visual system and social implications for the visually impaired which led her to pursue a career in Optometry.
Dr. Baron completed her Doctorate of Optometry at the University of Waterloo in 2013. As a student, she was involved with the Volunteer Optometric Services to Humanity (VOSH) and travelled to underserviced areas of Belize that did not have access to basic eye care. Dr. Baron also had the rare opportunity to work closely with some of the top cornea, retina, and neuro-ophthalmology specialists in North America. She gained hands-on experience in the diagnosis, management, and treatment of severe and rare diseases of the eye. Her experience provided her with the chance to observe some of the latest techniques being used in refractive, cataract, and retinal surgery.
