About Dr. Jae Song
I’ve been practicing optometry since 2007 but have worked in various eye related industries since my teenage years. I grew up in Toronto but I have worked in the Niagara region since I graduated, over time working at a few different optometry offices. In 2019 I decided to open up my own small office in St. Catharines. I’m also married to the most amazing woman in the world!
I did my undergraduate degree at the University of Waterloo where I obtained a Bachelor of Science degree in Honours Pre-Health/Pre-Optometry in 2002. After finishing this degree, I attended the Illinois College of Optometry in Chicago and graduated with my Doctor of Optometry degree in 2006. I was then accepted into the Vision Therapy and Rehabilitation Residency program at the SUNY College of Optometry in New York where I spent a year in specialized study of people with poorly functioning eyes and eye turns. During my residency I was able to explore using video games for vision therapy, but nowadays I just enjoy both of them on their own.
Currently my after work life includes video games, binge watching shows, and being a grown up.
