Dr. Amanda Brown was raised on a beef farm in the Cambridge area. She attended the University of Waterloo and graduated with Honours with both a Bachelor of Science and Doctor of Optometry degree in 2000. She completed an externship in ocular disease and therapeutics at Vision America in Memphis, Tennessee. This is where she became skilled in treating and managing glaucoma, diabetes, and laser refractive surgery patients.
After graduation, Dr. Brown was pleased to be able to stay in the area and join Dr. Lennox at the original Elgin St. location. In 2012, she became a partner in what is now known as Cambridge Eye Care. In addition to seeing patients, she enjoys supervising 4th year externs from the University of Waterloo School of Optometry and planning in-office events, like the Annual Ladies Night and UV Groovy Week.
Dr. Brown is also an active member of the Canadian Association of Optometrists, Ontario Association of Optometrists, Eye Recommend, and locally the treasurer for the Waterloo-Wellington and District Optometric Society. She also enjoys working with local ophthalmologists to ensure that there is sustainable vision care in the Cambridge area.
Outside of work, you will find Dr. Brown volunteering at the school where her daughter and son attend, at an arena cheering them on, or helping her husband, Steve, on the farm.
