Meet Our Team
Dr. Kit Tung Ip, OD, FAAO
Dr. Kit Tung Ip received her Bachelor of Science degree with Honours from University of Waterloo. She then pursued her Doctorate of Optometry at the New England College of Optometry in Boston, Massachusetts, where she graduated as a member of the Beta Sigma Kappa Optometric Honor Society. She is a Fellow of the American Academy of Optometry.
Dr. Ip has been an important contributor to the development of specialty contact lens and dry eye clinics in the greater Boston area of Massachusetts, and now brings her experience from the prestigious Ophthalmic Consultants of Boston, a multidisciplinary eye care center, to Gordon Wood Eye Associates.
Dr. Ip is experienced in primary care optometry seeing both children and adults, and in specialty and custom contact lens fitting for high prescriptions, non satisfactory post-surgical visual outcomes or irregular corneas, prosthetics, and conventional daily contact lens wear. Her passion in specialty contact lenses and vision rehabilitation motivates her to push the boundaries of traditional methods in order to establish the best solution for those suffering from reduced vision due to barriers created by the patient’s ocular profile.
Being licensed in both Canada and the US, she is thrilled to be back in her hometown of Toronto and to serve the community she grew up in. She is proud to provide eye care services in English, Cantonese and Mandarin fluently. When she is not seeing patients in clinics, she enjoys spending time with her daughter, listening to music and travelling.
Ruth graduated with honours from the Georgian College opticianry program in 1998, and has been part of the Gordon Wood Optical team since she was a 2nd year student, whether as a full-time or part-time member.
She loves to meet new people and help them see as clearly as possible, along with assisting them to find their new eyeglass styles. Ruth also worked with an ophthalmologist, and has a great deal of experience with counselling cataract and dry eye patients.
Like our founder, Gordon Wood, Ruth is very involved with horses and spends a great deal of her free time with her horse, Oscar, with whom she competes in dressage. She is also a music fan, and enjoys going to see live bands at different venues. She loves Fluevog Shoes; everyone cannot help but notice the beautiful collection she owns!
