Dr. Lisa Woo
Clinic Lecturer; Clinic Head, Health Sciences Optometry Clinic (Kitchener)
After her undergraduate studies at the University of Texas at Austin, Dr. Lisa Woo went on to receive her Doctorate of Optometry from the University of Houston, College of Optometry, in Texas. A few years later, she opened a private practice in her Houston Heights neighbourhood. Over the next 15 years, she built a new clinic into an established optometric practice in her community. As career changes developed, the family of five chose to move to Waterloo, back to her husband’s hometown. Since 2017, she has combined her love for caring for patients with teaching clinical care to the students at the University of Waterloo, School of Optometry. Dr. Woo is the Clinic Head of the Health Sciences Optometry Clinic, a satellite of the School of Optometry, in Kitchener. She and her husband have three children, and they all love traveling, enjoying different cuisines, and having dinner conversations together.
