Dr. Mary Nolan


Dr. Mary Nolan has called Brant County home for nearly thirty years and has been a partner at Brant Family Eye Care since 1986.

Dr. Nolan has a special interest in Binocular Vision and keeps current on all aspects of Optometry. Dr. Nolan’s research on the effect of various focusing abnormalities on different stereoacuity tests has been published in Investigative Ophthalmology & Visual Science journal and earned her the Central Optical Award for Excellence.

Dr. Nolan’s skills and expertise have also been recognized with the Bausch and Lomb Contact lens Outstanding achievement award and the KW Optical Company Award.

Dr. Nolan is a clinical primary care supervisor for the University of Waterloo Externship Program. She enjoys mentoring final year students from the University of Waterloo School by offering extern placements under her supervision in both of the Brant Family Eye Care clinics. She finds clinical teaching very rewarding. While sharing her years of experience in a real office situation, she enjoys the challenge of keeping up to date with the theoretical knowledge necessary to be able to guide the students to help them further their education and knowledge.

Dr. Nolan and her husband Jeff are proud parents of two boys, Chris (born in 1991) and Alex (born in 1993). When not busy with work and volunteer commitments, Dr. Nolan enjoys spending time with family and friends, gardening, attending the theatre, travelling (especially cruising) and spending summers at Sauble Beach.

Dr. Nolan is a member of the Ontario Association of Optometrists, the Canadian Association of Optometrists and the College of Optometrists of Ontario.

Dr. Nolan is proud to be a part of the team at Brant and Paris Family Eye Care Clinics. She has enjoyed watching the practice continue to grow and believes that the practice’s success is due to its philosophy of taking care of each patient in the most caring way.
