Blink Eyewear is happy to welcome Dr. Jessica Yang to the Blink family! Dr. Yang is new to our team and is a proud member of the Canadian Association of Optometrists, the Alberta Association of Optometrists, and the Calgary Society of Optometrists.
Dr. Yang has an extensive educational background. She completed her Bachelor of Science in Biology from the University of Calgary before going on to pursue her passion for optometry. She studied at the School of Optometry and Vision Science at the University of Waterloo, where she graduated in 2016.
Jessica underwent an ocular disease externship at the Veterans Affairs Hospital in Muskogee, Oklahoma, during the final year of her optometry training. This gave her work an international perspective and taught her about glaucoma, macular degeneration, and other diseases of the eye. She is interested in learning about the management and treatment of these otherwise debilitating diseases.
Dr. Yang loves to give back to the community and has a long history of philanthropy. She routinely goes on mission trips and has traveled to provide quality eye care to underprivileged patients in Mexico and Peru.
While she’s looking forward to her next trip, she’s hardly twiddling her thumbs waiting for it to come along. Dr. Yang runs a mobile clinic in her spare time and travels to nursing homes and other senior living centers to provide eye care to the elderly. Dr. Yang cares for patients of all ages, from children to seniors, although her passion is providing eye care to senior citizens who are most likely to be affected by ocular diseases or other vision troubles.
Dr. Yang loves her patients and can’t wait to meet you! To book an appointment with her or any one of our highly trained optometry staff, call any of our office locations today.
