After graduating from the University of Waterloo with a Bachelors of Honours Science degree, Dr. Michael Pellegrino continued his education at Nova Southeastern University in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida, receiving his Doctorate of Optometry degree. After working at both South Florida Vision Associates and The Rand Eye Institute, he decided to return home to Oshawa, where he would have the opportunity to continue the tradition of high-quality care provided by his mentor, Dr. E.F.

Dr. Pellegrino also recently expanded his practice to join the already well-established team at Bond Optical in Oshawa. Personalized service has been the hallmark that has set Bond Optical apart since it was established in 1994. Dr. Klein and Associates gave this practice a firm foundation, which Dr. Pellegrino hopes to continue by providing comprehensive eye care for patients of all ages.

In his spare time, some of Dr. Pellegrino’s hobbies and interests include bodybuilding, personal fitness, fishing, golf, soccer, swimming, watching films and reading.
