Dr. Christina Chan
OWNER | OPTOMETRIST
Everything you see at Komoka Optometry–from the team members you meet, to the interior design, our collection of frames and state-of-the-art technology–is built on Dr.Christina Chan’s dream of giving Komoka the gift of good vision. From an early age, Dr. Chan knew she loved helping people and wanted to channel that passion into her own medical practice. After receiving her Honours Bachelor of Medical Science (with a double major in Pharmacology, Toxicology and Physiology) from the University of Western Ontario in her hometown of London, Ontario, Dr. Chan went on to complete her Doctorate of Optometry at Nova Southeastern University in Florida in 2011. As a Doctor of Optometry, Dr. Chan makes it her goal to care for her clients by building strong relationships and treating each patient like family. She’s based her practice on her commitment to ensuring your eye health and vision is well cared for by taking the time to get to know you and understand your unique needs on a personal level. As the co-owner of Upper Richmond Optometry in Arva, Dr. Chan is now bringing her passion for new evolutions in eye care and her unique style and fashion sense to Komoka and its surrounding areas.
Dr. Stephanie McLellan
Having grown up down the road from Komoka, Dr. Stephanie McLellan is thrilled to have the chance to connect with and serve patients close to her hometown. She is passionate about her career in optometry and is always looking for ways to continue to learn and grow with her patients. Dr. McLellan spent three years living and training at the National Ballet School in Toronto, before pursuing a career in vision science. Dr. McLellan attended the University of Western Ontario and then received both her Bachelor of Vision Science and her Doctor of Optometry degree at Nova Southeastern University in Florida (where she won the Pioneer Ophthalmic Primary Care award for excellence as a clinician). Dr. McLellan has a special interest in Sports Vision and binocular vision disorders, and has provided vision screening for Special Olympics athletes and assisted participants in the Lighthouse of Broward County’s Yoga for the Blind. Dr. McLellan is driven by her goal of having a positive impact on every patient she sees by making them feel heard, well taken care of and comfortable.
