Laurie Capogna, OD

Dr. Laurie Capogna graduated from the University of Waterloo in Ontario, Canada, with her Doctor of Optometry degree in 1998. She is an active partner  in Peninsula Eye Associates, where she provides full spectrum optometric care in a surgical eye care centre. She also runs a Low Vision Clinic where she helps patients with eye disease and vision loss to achieve their daily goals. Dr. Capogna practices comprehensive optometry where she focuses on all three aspects of eye care: prevention, treatment and vision rehabilitation. She is a member of the Ontario Association of Optometrists, the Canadian Association of Optometrists, the College of Optometrists of Ontario and the Optometric Nutrition Society.

Through her daily interaction with patients, Dr. Capogna saw the need for a way to educate people regarding the benefits of good nutrition and vision. Developed over months of research, Eyefoods, A Food Plan for Healthy Eyes, is a tool to encourage her patients and the public to discover the power of certain foods to prevent eye disease.
