Dr. Ellison graduated from the University of Waterloo School of Optometry in 1988. She received the A.W. Cole award for Clinical Proficiency. She practiced in Guelph until 1994, when she joined her husband, Dr. Bruce Pierce in Waterloo. Dr. Ellison enjoys the wonderful diversity in the practice with patients of all ages and from all parts of the world. She especially enjoys examining children’s eyes. Children’s exams always start with a ride in the chair, pictures (if they aren’t quite ready for the letters) and the special magic 3-D glasses to check depth perception. Dr. Ellison has cared for many children from their first exam at their third birthday until they bring in children of their own. The new OPTOMAP retinal exam works amazingly well to capture a 200 degree wide digital retinal photo in less than a second- great for wiggly little ones! Dr. Ellison and Dr. Pierce live in Waterloo with their two sons.
