Dr. Shannon Pennifold, B.Sc., OD
Dr. Pennifold completed her B.Sc. in Immunology and Infection from the University of Alberta and her Doctor of Optometry degree from the University of Waterloo.
An externship at OMNI Eye Specialists in Baltimore provided her with experience in diagnosing and managing ocular disease, including glaucoma, diabetic retinopathy, and macular degeneration. She also spent some time with a developmental optometrist in Calgary to gain more understanding in the role of vision therapy in optometry. She has done research on the link between binocular vision problems and learning difficulties of school aged children and continues to have a passion in this area.
Dr. Pennifold has a special interest in pediatrics, binocular vision, vision therapy, and ocular disease. She has participated in volunteer eye care in Ecuador and hopes to have more eye care mission opportunities in the future.
In her spare time, you will probably find her on a volleyball court or skiing the Rockies.
