Our Practice

Dr. Joel Schaefer has been practicing full-scope optometry in Georgetown, Ontario since graduating from the School of Optometry & Vision Science in 2008. In March 2016, Dr. Schaefer and Dr. Bruce Foley relocated to Modern Eyes Optometry, a brand new facility in Georgetown South, to offer state-of-the-art technology and a greater frame selection. Dr. Christine O joined MEO in August 2018 prior to Dr. Foley’s retirement in October 2019. In the spring of 2019, MEO expanded to facilitate the growth of our Dry Eye Disease and Myopia Control clinics. In June 2021, Dr. Christina Sayegh joined the team to care for our growing number of patients.

Our Optometrists

Dr. Joel Schaefer

Dr. Schaefer graduated on the Dean’s Honours List from the University of Waterloo in 2008 with his Honours Bachelor of Science and Optometry Degree. He was awarded the RACH memorial award for demonstrating undefeatable courage, strength, perseverance and determination.

Training under numerous surgeons at the Houston Eye Associates enhanced Dr. Schaefer’s knowledge in ocular disease and his ability to provide comprehensive care for all ages. Dr. Schaefer has a special interest in pediatric care, dry eye disease and macular degeneration. He believes healthy eyes starts with education, which is why he takes time to explain all tests, results and treatment plans in terms that make sense to you.

Since graduation Dr. Schaefer has been practicing full-scope optometry in Georgetown and happily resides in town with his wife and daughter.

Dr. Christine O

Dr. O is a graduate from the University of Waterloo, where she completed her Biomedical Bachelor of Science and Optometry Degree on the Dean’s Honours List. Dr. O has a special interest in pediatric optometry and myopia control.

Dr. O is friendly, compassionate and meticulous. She is committed to providing our patients with tailored eye exams aimed at satisfying patients’ individual needs.

Dr. Christina Sayegh

Dr. Sayegh completed her Honours Bachelor of Medical Sciences from the University of Western in London, Ontario, where she was born and raised, and recently graduated on the Dean’s Honours List from the University of Waterloo with her Optometry Degree.

Growing up, Dr. Sayegh looked forward to her annual eye exams where she had an opportunity to express her curiosity and share her excitement about eye care. Today, Dr. Sayegh strives to impart that same enthusiasm to her patients and create memorable experiences by making patients feel welcome and thoroughly informed about their eye health.

Outside of the clinic, Dr. Sayegh enjoys cooking with her loved ones, singing along to music, and hiking with her dogs.
