Dr. Antoinette Chamoun
Dr. Chamoun was born and raised in Edmonton and is also a Pacific University, College of Optometry alumnus, graduating in 2016. Prior to working at Lendrum Eyecare, she practiced full-scope optometry in Minnesota. During optometry school, Dr. Chamoun was an ocular disease teaching assistant, which sparked her interest in ocular disease and dry eye. Dr. Chamoun’s clinical externships allowed her to train with several specialty sites, including the following: a cataract/LASIK surgical center, a contact-lens specialty clinic, the VA in Lexington, KY, and at Fort Washakie IHS in Fort Washakie, WY. Dr. Chamoun practices full-scope optometry including the treatment of dry eye, ocular disease, and the fitting of contact lenses.
Although Dr. Chamoun has traveled across the United States (and beyond!), she is excited to be back home. She enjoys taking in live music, hiking, and experimenting in the kitchen.

Chelsea was born in Medicine Hat and moved to Edmonton in 2017 for higher education and a change of pace. She is currently enrolled at MacEwan University, pursuing a Bachelor of Commerce degree.

Chelsea’s favourite part of working in the optical industry is working with patients to find the perfect frame that not only fits their fashion preferences but also brings out the best in their facial features.
Outside of work, Chelsea enjoys live music with her friends, walking in the ravine with her dog, Ivy, and watching her favourite tv shows.
