Dr. Katie Ryan grew up in Ancaster, Ontario. She attended the University of Waterloo and graduated on the Dean’s Honours List for both her Bachelor of Science (Honours Biomedical Science) and Doctor of Optometry degrees. Her ocular disease externship was in a tertiary care centre that focussed on the management of glaucoma, cataracts, and retinal disease (such as diabetic retinopathy and macular degeneration).
She currently lives in Paris with her husband, Robert. They enjoy running half marathons and training together. Dr. Ryan takes part in Norfolk County community education events such as the annual Wellness Fair, Women in Business, and presentations for the Haldimand Norfolk Diabetes Program and Multiple Sclerosis Society. She sees patients of all ages: from infants to seniors. She truly enjoys improving the vision of the people of Norfolk County through personalized treatments such as new prescription glasses, cutting edge contact lenses, laser eye surgery referrals, or ocular disease management.
She focuses on patient communication to maintain healthy eyes and prevent eye disease. She is currently accepting new patients in the Port Dover and Simcoe locations.
