Dr. Thomas Jay Yung is a native born Calgarian who is proud to serve his hometown’s eye care needs. He has several years in the eye care industry prior to becoming an optometrist. He began his career in eye care as a lens lab technician, followed by working as an optometric assistant. Already experienced in fitting and repairing glasses as well as honing his technique with clinical tests, Dr. Yung then graduated with his Doctorate of Optometry from the University of Waterloo and is excited to serve as an optometrist at Foresight Eyecare.
During his time at the university, he spent time in the specialty clinics (contact lens, binocular vision, low vision and ocular health), which allows him to give his patients full spectrum eye care. In addition to his training at the university, he was mentored by an experienced ophthalmologist in the Toronto area for the management of ocular diseases such as glaucoma, macular degeneration and cataracts. His training also included one-on-one instruction with local Calgary optometrists.
Throughout his training, he developed a special interest in the areas of specialty contact lenses, low vision and ocular disease management. His practice philosophy has strong emphasis on taking time to listen to his patient’s concerns as well as educating them about their eye health. He is able to provide his optometric services in Cantonese and English.
