DR. ALVIN YANG
Background: Growing up, I had a very close connection to my grandfather and grandmother. Through their engaging stories and them leading by example, they instilled a foundation of values that has led to who I have become today. I knew I wanted to serve the community in some way, shape or form. One day, during careers class in grade 10, I stumbled across this profession called “optometry” and the rest is history.
Memberships: Canadian Association of Optometrists, Ontario Association of Optometrists, College of Optometrists of Ontario.
Serving the community: During the last few years, I have been actively visiting non-English speaking retirement homes and community centers to do educational talks on ocular health. It has been one of the most rewarding experiences I have ever had. My vision is to have a team of healthcare professionals on board with me for the near future.
Professional Interests: To provide an amazing eye care experience that makes you go, “Wow.”
Personal: In my down time, I enjoy weight training, restaurant-hopping, and singing. In my second year of optometry school, I competed in an international singing competition in Hong Kong and almost signed with a record label.
