Natasha Birch, PVT

More about our vision therapist...

Natasha moved to Canada in 2010 from the UK, where she earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in Modern Languages and Linguistics, and speaks French and German.

She joined our team in October 2017 as a vision therapist and has since successfully completed the PVTAP Vision Therapy program.

She first came to us as a Mom when her son started Vision therapy for amblyopia and an eye turn. Throughout his sessions, her interest in euro-optometry grew and she was eager to learn more. With her personal experience, linguistic training and keen interest in this field, along with her calm and warm personality, she was a perfect fit for our team. She is passionate about helping people and working one on one with patients. To be able to contribute to their rehabilitation and see them progress the way her son did, is Natasha’s favourite part of the job.
