From childhood, Dr. Thompson had a glimpse of the optometry world once she started wearing her first pair of glasses in elementary school. Fast forward to high school, she always took an interest in eyes. It was the first thing she noticed about people. After having the opportunity to shadow her optometrist in grade 10 she confirmed that was the field she wanted to pursue. Years later she was able to fulfill that dream. She is passionate about her job and loves helping her patients, who oftentimes feel just like family. She tries to provide a warm, relaxed atmosphere for her patients.
She loves spending time with her patients where she focuses on education about general eye health; anything from vision correction to nutrition and eye healthy recipes. She is a firm believer in preventative care and overall body wellness.
Dr. Naghmeh Thompson completed her undergraduate degree at McMaster University where she received a Bachelor of Science degree, with honours and a minor in Hispanic studies. She then completed her Doctorate of Optometry at the prestigious Illinois College of Optometry in Chicago where she graduated Magna Cum Laude. She is licensed to practice in both Canada and the United States.
She takes a special interest in ocular disease and also enjoys treating the pediatric population. She is also certified to prescribe medication in the treatment of ocular diseases e.g. bacterial infections, viral infections, glaucoma, allergies and other conditions
When not in the exam room Dr. Thompson enjoys spending time with her newly expanded family and being outdoors. She enjoys travelling, boating, running and camping. "If I weren't an optometrist I probably would have been an air stewardess. I would love to travel the world. There is so much to see and discover."
She is excited to call Midhurst home for her family and she looks forward to taking part and supporting local community events.
