Dr. Dianna Leong has practiced optometry in Calgary for 20 years, graduating from the University of Waterloo in 1994. She initially practiced with an ophthalmology group and commuted to a private practice in Olds, Alberta. For three years, she was an adjunct assistant professor for the School of Optometry in Pacific UniversityOregon. This involved clinical guidance for optometry students while working in downtown Calgary and Marlborough Mall Optometry Centre.
Dr. Leong is committed to preventative eye care, using leading edge developments. She continues to hone her skills with volunteer activities such as speaking at local seminars for schools, physicians, and community seniors groups on various eye care topics. Currently she is on the national team for writing exam questions for the Canadian Optometry Licencing exams. A special interest in diabetes also keeps her active on Optometry’s national diabetes committee, promoting awareness and education on diabetes prevention and nutrition. She was president of the Calgary Society of Optometrists, which offers education and collaboration among optometrists and other health care professionals.
Another area of interest is challenging contact lens fittings (e.g. keratoconus, multifocal contact lenses). She enjoys practicing in North Calgary, and looks forward to being a family eye doctor for years to come.
