Dr. Jason Chau graduated from the University of Waterloo School of Optometry in 2019. Dr. Chau is a strong advocate for patient education for eye health, which led him to create his own website called www.WhatOptometristsDo.com. He believes that excellent eye care starts with clear and accessible communication with his patients, and encourages all of his patients to ask him questions regarding their eye health. Dr. Chau believes that better awareness and education is the best way to prevent vision loss, and therefore he can provide his patients with optimal, comfortable vision.
Dr. Chau received extensive ocular health training from Ashcroft Vision Care, a rural optometry practice in Dauphin, Manitoba. He has gained valuable experience working in an under-served community with a team of ophthalmologists, optometrists, and opticians. He is well-versed in current treatments for a wide range of diseases such as: glaucoma, macular degeneration, diabetic retinopathy, cataracts, and dry eye. He also has a special interest in dry eye management, and myopia control.
Dr. Chau also went on an eye care mission trip to Cimislia, Moldova while in school. He was able to provide eye care to this under-served area by performing comprehensive eye exams and dispensing eye wear. He was able to help many who have struggled all their lives, and never had access to glasses before.
In his spare time, he enjoys travelling and experiencing the cultures of other countries, playing soccer, and playing board games/video games.
Dr. Chau is a proud member of the College of Optometrists of Ontario, Ontario Association of Optometrists, and Canadian Association of Optometrists.
