About our optometrist
Dr. Olivia Hwee graduated on the Dean’s List from the University of Waterloo School of Optometry in 2011. She gained valuable clinical experience during her internship at John Kenyon American Eye Institute near Louisville, Kentucky. She was involved in the diagnosis, care and management of patients with ocular diseases such as glaucoma, diabetic retinopathy, cataracts, and macular degeneration. She also assessed patients after laser vision correction, corneal transplants and cataract surgery.
In 2010, Dr. Hwee traveled to Chiapas, Mexico with VOSH (Volunteer Optometric Services to Humanity) providing eye care and glasses to those in need. Dr. Hwee’s interest in Optometry started as a child, when her father lost vision from a retinal detachment. She is committed to providing excellent comprehensive eye care to her patients. Dr. Hwee practices full scope optometry, welcoming new patients of all ages. She is passionate about educating patients on preventative eye care to maintain healthy eyes and optimal vision. By getting to know her patients, she offers recommendations and advice based on their individual lifestyle and vision needs.She has been practicing at Brooklin Vision Care since it opened in 2015, and eventually bought the practice in 2022 from Dr. Pamela Schmitz and Dr. Linda Sujo. Dr. Hwee is excited to continue to serve this community and ensure her patients receive quality care and friendly service. In her spare time she enjoys traveling and spending time with friends and family.
