Dr. Joulaie received her B.Sc in Biology and her M.Sc in Molecular Genetics at York University. She has done various clinical researches on Glaucoma at St Michael's hospital in Toronto. She graduated from the Doctor of Optometry program at the University of Waterloo in 2014. As part of her training, she completed an eye disease internship in a busy general ophthalmology practice. There she gained extensive training and hands on experience in diagnosing and treating ocular diseases with the main focus on glaucoma and post refractive eye surgery care.
Dr. Joulaie is also very passionate about doing pediatric eye care. Myopia (often called short sightedness) is an eye health issue, which typically presents at school ago children and is on the rise. Although it can be easily corrected by regular glasses or contact lenses, it can have long term eye health implications if allowed to worsen unchecked. Using specially designed glasses lenses, specialty contact lens designs and eye drops can help. She has been trained to prevent onset of myopia or slowing its progression with these tools. She is a member of the Ontario Association of Optometrists (OAO) and Canadian Association of Optometrists (CAO)
