Dr. Danielle Gordon (she/her)

Optometrist + Owner

Hello! I’m Danielle!

I’m originally from Waterloo, Ontario and I graduated from the Doctor of Optometry program at the University of Waterloo with honours. Since then, I moved to Alberta and I’ve been fortunate to practice in a variety of environments, from suburban neighborhoods to rural communities. I enjoy comprehensive vision care, and I’m particularly interested in dry eye and ocular surface disease management, nearsightedness control for children, and glaucoma detection and therapy. I have fully completed the certification modules through the Institute of Functional Medicine, and I received my certification as a health coach in 2022 through the Wellcoaches organization. I had the pleasure of serving my profession as a board member of the Alberta Association of Optometrists from 2016-2020, and I continue to be an active member of our provincial association.

My heart work includes the Fit To Read Project, an initiative I created to connect books with kids in need and to help to create a community of joyful confident readers. I also enjoy mentoring high school and university students. When I’m not at work, I love to spend time with my husband and two kids, get my heart rate up with a good run, and relax with a good book and a hot cup of coffee. I love what we do at Sphere and I hope to connect with you soon!
