Dr. Lucy Liu
Dr. Liu is ecstatic to be the newest optometrist joining the Fort Saskatchewan Eye Care team! She grew up in Saskatoon, SK with her mom, dad, and younger sister. Following high school, she spent a total of seven years at the University of Waterloo, ON, obtaining her Bachelors of Science degree and Doctor of Optometry degree in 2018.
During her studies, Dr. Liu gained exposure to a wide array of ocular diseases, including management for diabetic retinopathy, cataracts, dry eye, and macular degeneration. In her second year of optometry school, she spent three months working as an intern at LASIK MD in Toronto, ON, gaining valuable knowledge on management of pre and post LASIK and PRK patients. In her fourth year, she spent four months in Salt Lake City, UT as an intern at the Eye Foundation of Utah, where she gained valuable knowledge on the diagnosis and management of many ocular diseases, with a heavy emphasis on glaucoma. Her primary care internships also took her to Scarborough, ON and Calgary, AB, allowing her to gain exposure to different private practices. In 2015, she published a journal article in Contact Lens & Anterior Eye on the effect of biofilm growth in contact lens cases with Dr. Lyndon Jones.
After graduating, Dr. Liu moved to Kamloops, BC and practiced full scope optometry at Kamloops Family Vision Clinic for a year. She saw and managed a wide array of ocular disease, and had a close relationship with the ophthalmologists in Kamloops. After deciding that she wanted to be closer to home, Dr. Liu moved to Fort Saskatchewan in summer 2019, when she had the privilege of joining the Fort Saskatchewan Eye Care family. She is extremely excited to settle down in the Fort and make this her permanent home. In her spare time, she loves to exercise, explore the outdoors, watch movies and spend time with her family, friends, and cat, Juno!
Dr. Liu enjoys seeing patients of all ages, from the little kiddos to her senior patients. Dr. Liu is accepting new patients and would be happy to provide comprehensive eye care for you and your family.
