Dr. Rebecca Anidjar graduated from the University of Toronto with Honours, where she completed her undergraduate studies in Physical Health and Education in 2008. During her undergraduate studies, she volunteered at Sick Kids Hospital as an intern for a year. She also did research at Mount Sinai Hospital at the Leadership Sinai Center for Diabetes. She went on to complete a Doctor of Optometry at the Pennsylvania College of Optometry (PCO), where she specialized in Pediatric Optometry. Known for its thorough clinical training, PCO granted her the opportunity to receive extensive training in ocular disease treatment and management, primary care, traumatic brain injury, specialty contact lens fittings, and advanced pediatric care.
During her interning years, Dr. Anidjar gained invaluable experience working alongside many distinguished Optometrists and Ophthalmologists across North America. She was able to gain extensive experience working in many diverse communities, especially as she worked in the Ophthalmology department at Albert Einstein Hospital in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, as well as in private Optometry and Ophthalmology clinics in North Miami Beach, Florida, as well as in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Additionally, she spent time interning in her home province of Ontario, where she worked at an Oakville eye clinic, a practice focused in Vision Therapy and treating Binocular Vision Disorders in both children and adults.
