Meet Windsor Optometrists, Dr. Edward Gilmore and Dr Zora Juricic

Drs. Gilmore and Juricic are Optometrists in Windsor providing complete eye care services for the surrounding communities.

As licensed optometrists, we provide exams, diagnose, and treatment of all disorders that affect the eye or vision. We are trained to recognize a range of health issues; such as glaucoma, macular degeneration, diabetes and hypertension.

We work hard to stay current on the latest advances in eye health and vision care and regularly attends continuing education seminars and advanced training courses. It is because of our dedication to continuing education that our patients receive the most modern and progressive vision care available.

Dr Edward Gilmore attended Optometry School in Northern Ireland and graduated in 1999. He moved to Canada in 2001. He completed a PhD at the University of Waterloo investigating diabetic eye disease in 2006 and moved to Windsor to practice. Dr Gilmore is a recipient of the W.B. Pearson medal for creativity in research and has published numerous papers in various optometric journals. Interests include diabetic eye disease, glaucoma and age-related macular degeneration, LASIK, and contact lenses.

Dr Zora Juricic went to the University of Waterloo School of Optometry and was given an American Optical Scholarship upon entering the Optometry program and was on the Dean's Honour list all 4 years. During that time she was awarded the E.J. Chisholm Memorial Scholarship, Advanced Medical Optics Award, Alcon Continuing Professional Eduation Award and graduated in 2000 with the Advanced Medical Optics General Proficiency Award.

Dr Juricic's interests include contact lenses, refractive eye surgery and pediatric eye examinations. Following her internship with local ophthalmologists (Dr Tayfour, Dr Deans, Dr Fiander and Dr Curran) she has a great interest in retinal disease and ocular health.
