Dr. Lucy Shaw
Dr. Shaw grew up in Saskatoon, SK, with her parents and younger sister. Her interest in optometry began in grade 9, after many years of visiting her family optometrist. She spent a total of seven years at the University of Waterloo, ON, obtaining her Bachelor of Science degree and Doctor of Optometry degree in 2018.
During her studies, Dr. Shaw gained exposure to a wide array of ocular diseases, including management for diabetic retinopathy, pre and post-surgical care for cataracts, dry eye, and macular degeneration. In her second year of optometry school, she worked as an intern at LASIK MD in Toronto, ON, gaining valuable knowledge on the management of pre and post-LASIK and PRK procedures and cross-linking for keratoconic patients. In her fourth year of optometry school, Dr. Shaw spent several months in Salt Lake City, UT, as an intern at the Eye Foundation of Utah, where she gained valuable knowledge on diagnosing and managing many ocular diseases, with a heavy emphasis on glaucoma and retinal disease. Her primary care internships also took her to Scarborough, ON and Calgary, AB, allowing her to gain exposure in different private practices. In 2015, Dr. Shaw published a journal article in Contact Lens & Anterior Eye on the effect of biofilm growth in contact lens cases with Dr. Lyndon Jones.
Dr. Shaw thoroughly enjoys providing primary care services for her patients. She also has experience with providing vision rehabilitation/vision therapy for patients with learning disabilities, strabismus/amblyopia, and traumatic brain injury. Dr. Shaw moved to Fort Saskatchewan in the summer of 2019 and feels incredibly blessed to be a part of such a wonderful community. She enjoys spending time with her husband, Dr. Wyatt Shaw, and their two cats, Juno and Bowser. Dr. Shaw looks forward to providing comprehensive eye care for you and your family.
