Dr. Patricia Fink Optometry and Halton Vision Therapy Centre are saddened and excited to announce Dr. Shirley Ha’s journey into a new optometry opportunity. We are sad to see her go and excited for her future with Eyecarrot Innovations Corporation.
When Dr. Ha inquired years ago to see if she could practice a few hours a week at my practice to learn more about vision therapy, it was a seamless transition. Dr. Ha’s interest in learning and continued zest for adventure placed us on an exciting journey which included studying and completing our FCOVD together and helping to get the non-profit organization, Vision Therapy Canada, off the ground. As one of the prominent Vision Therapy Clinics in Canada, it was a pleasure having Dr. Ha be part of the team. Her integrity and knowledge will serve Eyecarrot Innovations Corporation well and I am excited to see what advances her involvement with this organization will procure for VT in Canada.

Below is Dr. Ha’s message:
Dear Valued Patients, Doctors, Staff and Vision Therapists:
After nearly eight years, It is not without sadness that I tendered my departure and my last day at Dr. Fink Optometry and at Halton Vision Therapy will be January 31, 2020. I am pursuing other interests and have accepted a position at Eyecarrot Innovations Corp. in Oakville, Ontario. In order to maintain my professional license with the College of Optometrists of Ontario, I will continue to be in private practice sporadically, and provide further information to this in the future.
To my patients: Thank you from the bottom of my heart for your trust, support and loyalty over the years; in particular those who travelled long distances to see me for your eye examinations. You are in very good hands with any of the optometrists in this organization and the transfer of care will be seamless. I wouldn’t be the Optometrist I am today without learning from you all - you are my best teachers.
To the Doctors: I thank everyone for your support, encouragement, understanding and collegiality over the years. I know Dr. Fink and all the optometrists in this organization have the same passions as me - to provide stellar eye and vision care to their patients and to leave deeper footprints for the profession of Optometry in the months and years ahead. I will forever treasure this priceless experience and the numerous newfound friendships.
To the Staff and Vision Therapists: It has been an extraordinary honour and privilege to work with each and every one of you. Your commitment, enthusiasm and energy are contagious and they are what drive patients to return. I am truly grateful to have been part of a terrific and talented team of really dedicated people.
Wishing you all the very best,
Shirley Ha, HBSc., OD, FCOVD
