Although Dr. Facey is well versed in full-scope optometry, her specific optometric interests include pediatrics and binocular vision. Dr. Facey is excited to announce the addition of in-office Vision Therapy for her patients. Optometric vision therapy is a customized program of visual activities designed to develop, improve and enhance people’s visual performance. This is an exclusive service offered by only a few optometrists in the Burlington area. We are excited that Dr. Facey is able to share her knowledge and expertise in this field to further benefit our patients.
With the understanding that vision and learning are so intimately connected, Dr. Facey is passionate about working with children who have vision problems with the goal of preventing or improving learning-related vision problems. Dr. Facey’s passion and expertise has led her to a position on the Children’s Vision Committee for the Ontario Association of Optometrists (OAO). Through this committee, Dr. Facey works to advocate for children’s vision and highlights the importance of routine ocular assessments for all children.
Dr. Facey is a Clinical Associate of the Optometric Extension Program Foundation (OEPF). She has completed the OEPF Clinical Curriculum: a series of specialized post-graduate courses that teaches the theoretical background and clinical practice of behavioural optometry and vision therapy. In addition, Dr. Facey is an associate of the College of Optometrists in Vision Development (COVD).
In her time outside of the office, Dr. Facey is actively involved in the greater Burlington community, working to engage fellow young professionals in the downtown core in addition to her child vision advocacy work. You may spot her around town participating in some of her favourite activities, including running, tennis, and golf, as well as enjoying gelato down by the Waterfront Pier!
