Meet the optometrists at Sport Specs & Opticals.
Dr. Steven Gold
Dr. Steven Gold graduated from the University of Waterloo School of Optometry in 1980. His clinical experience includes specialized training in contact lenses, ocular disease and diabetic eye care.
Dr. Gold had an established independent practice in Vaughan for more than 40 years. He continues to work in Vaughan but has found that many of his loyal patients and extended families have moved south to Toronto. Dr. Gold is dedicated to his patients and has a great passion for what he does.
Sport Specs & Opticals is thrilled to have Dr. Steven Gold join us part-time, where he will continue providing quality eye health care to new and existing patients in the community.
Dr. Lauren Libenson
Born and raised in Montreal, Dr. Libenson obtained her Bachelor of Science degree in Anatomy and Cell Biology with a minor in Kinesiology from McGill University. It was during this time that she discovered her passion for vision, while working in a vision research lab studying colour vision. She then attended the New England College of Optometry in Boston, Massachusetts and graduated with her Doctorate of Optometry where she received the Presidential Scholarship and was a member of Beta Sigma Kappa Honor Society.
During her time in optometry school, Dr. Libenson trained at many renowned eye care institutions around Massachusetts. This included specialty contact lens fits at the Fenway Health Center and in ocular disease at the Jamaica Plain Veteran Affairs Hospital.
She is eager to begin serving the eye care needs of the GTA, and has a special interest in treating dry eye disease and fitting contact lenses. Her professional affiliations include the Ontario Association of Optometrists and the Ontario College of Optometrists.
