Our Optometrists

As Optometrists, we check more than just your prescription for eye glasses. Optometrists are eye doctors that specialize in detecting eye diseases. Many eye diseases do not have symptoms, but are treatable if detected early.

After gaining valuable experience in optometric care while working at various optometric clinics in southern Ontario, she opened this clinic in 1998, growing it into a full scope family orientated progressive clinic that prides itself on offering exceptional service and quality eye wear products. Her mission statement: A visible difference in professional eye care!
She is a member of the Ontario Association of Optometrists and the Canadian Association of Optometrists. For many years she has given multiple talks to various organizations about the importance of eye care, especially childrens’ eye care, and sponsored many local teams and clubs in the Burlington community.

Dr. Margaret Corey completed her undergraduate degree and then her Doctor of Optometry degree at the University of Waterloo in 1999. While pursuing her Optometry degree she completed an externship at Barnet-Dulaney Eye Center in Mesa, Arizona, where she was actively involved in the pre-and post- operative management of cataract, glaucoma, refractive procedures, and retinal disease. She also participated in a volunteer mission to central Mexico as a part of the I-Care International organization performing free eye examinations to a community in need.

Dr. Corey spent the first 6 years of her career in London Ontario in a private optometry practice as well as at TLC London where she was responsible for patient care on surgical days and was the emergency on-call Optometrist after hours. Twelve years ago Dr. Corey joined Dr. Jo-Anne Monteiro and Associates and has thoroughly enjoyed being a part of a growing and progressive full scope optometric practice.
