Dr. Raphaela So completed her undergraduate studies at the University of Western Ontario and then went on to earn her Doctor of Optometry degree with Distinction from the University of Waterloo. As a contact lens wearer from a young age, Dr. So developed an interest in vision care and now practices full scope optometry with an interest in specialty contact lenses.
During her optometry studies, she volunteered on a medical mission trip to the Mully Children's Family in Kenya and hopes to return again in the future. She also volunteered with Out of the Cold, a program which provides various services, including eye care, for street involved people in the GTA. When she is not seeing patients, she enjoys spending time with her fiancé, going to the gym, hiking on trails, and playing ultimate frisbee.
