Dr. Julian Prosia

Dr. Julian Prosia gained an undergraduate degree in Biology/Physiology from McMaster University in 2017. Building on this sound basis, he attended Nova Southeastern University in Ft Lauderdale, FL, graduating in May 2019 with an Honors BSc of Vision Science. He was then granted the Dean’s Scholarship at the same institution and qualified as a Doctor of Optometry in 2021, gaining the highest distinction and ranking in the top 5 of the Class of 2021.

Dr. Julian Prosia has dedicated his career to the field of optometry since 2013, where he honed his craft from ground level upwards. Today, one facet of his expertise is that of dry eye care—an area of optometry that’s somewhat under-addressed in terms of care, yet blights millions of North Americans. This, along with expertise in emergency primary care along with glaucoma management, make for a well-rounded practitioner whose services are highly sought after by patients and respected by his peers.

During his extensive training, he developed a passion for tutoring, serving as a lead academic and clinical skills tutor for hundreds of students. His commitment remains to this day, and he remains a firm advocate for those seeking a career in eye care.

“Experts agree that our increased use of screen time has left well over 30 million North Americans to suffer from dry eye, yet it remains one of the most under-served issues in eye care.”
