Caelan Arthurs

Caelan

Vision Therapist

Caelan has been working as a vision therapist since 2018. She works with patients of all ages to develop comfortable vision. Caelan knows each person’s case is unique, and she enjoys the process of understanding and treating each individual. She loves getting to mix science and creativity to get results!

Before joining Tonic Eye Care, Caelan graduated from York University with a Bachelor of Health Studies. Through school, she volunteered at St. Michael’s hospital in the Neurosurgery/ Trauma unit and the Ophthalmology Clinic.

Over the course of their treatment, Caelan has been able to take part in some amazing patient ‘firsts’, including discovering depth perception, reading words independently, or simply going a full day without a headache. Moments like these are what drives Caelan to become a better vision therapist!

Outside of work, Caelan can be seen drawing or talking to her bird.
