Stories of just some of the approximately 200 refugee patients a year Dr. Lisa Woo remembers seeing at the Health Sciences Optometry Clinic (HSOC) in downtown Kitchener, run by the University of Waterloo School of Optometry and Vision Science.
It’s cold outside but the view of Hudson’s Bay is beautiful from the Churchill Health Centre (CHC), where dozens of patients got their eyes examined this week, some for the first time in years, thanks to state-of-the art equipment donated through the University of Waterloo School of Optometry & Vision Science.
The eye clinic, which took place from October 23 to 25 in the northern Manitoba town of about 900 people, was the first to pilot an initiative co-led by the School, the Manitoba Association of Optometrists (MAO) and the CHC.
New research from the University of Waterloo’s School of Optometry and Vision Science found a difference between how females and males with high autistic traitprocess visual information. This provides researchers with a possible correlation to explain why some females are underdiagnosed and to help medical teams understand how a person’s neurodivergent presentation is tied to how they process sensory information.
