After nearly 25 years of working at our office, Dr. Kathryn Alton has wrapped up her time at Wingham Optometry Clinic. As of July 2023, she will be working only out of Palmerston Optometry Clinic as that office is getting busier and she needs to dedicate more time there.
Dr. Alton started at the Wingham Optometry Clinic as a high school co-op student in 1999 with Dr. Kevin Hagerman. She owned the office for 10 years with her Optometry School classmate and friend Dr. Laura McCarthy and worked a further two years alongside Dr. McCarthy and Dr. Doorn.
Dr. Alton thoroughly enjoyed her time at Wingham Optometry Clinic and will miss the patients she built relationships with over the years. Both the patients and staff will be truly missed! She looks forward to still collaborating with Drs McCarthy and Doorn and won’t be a stranger to the Clinic!
Dr. McCarthy and Dr. Doorn will continue to provide the residents of Wingham and surrounding communities with the highest level of optometric care. Even though this news is bittersweet for us, we hope that you will join the doctors and staff at Wingham Optometry Clinic in wishing Dr. Alton every success.
