She sold the practice in 2021 for family reasons and is pleased to join the Urban Eyecare group practice on a part-time basis.

She was previously president of the Calgary Society of Optometrists, and is also part of a local mobile eyecare team to travel to those who have difficulty accessing eye care (e.g. seniors homes, Afghan, Ukrainian refugees). The eyes are the lamp of the body, and Dr. Leong believes in minimizing barriers to eye care to anyone in need.
