Dr Adriana Filippone was born and raised in Sudbury.
She became interested in the field of optometry after her first visit to the family optometrist, Dr. Leopold Lacourciere. Sitting at the back of the class in high school, Dr. Filippone discovered herself needing to squint to read notes on the blackboard properly. Her new glasses and the clear vision they provided changed her life forever.
After graduating from high school, she completed one post secondary year of education at the University of Waterloo in 1979 and was then accepted into the four year professional optometry program. She successively completed the program and graduated in 1983 with a Doctor of Optometry degree. Coincidentally, she received the “The Leopold Lacourciere Award for General Proficiency” in the first year of its inception.
Dr. Filippone is a member of the Canadian Association of Optometrists and the Ontario Association of Optometrists. She has been a Clinical Faculty Member of the Northern Ontario School of Medicine since 2008, where she has lectured to second year medical students about the "special sense’ of vision.
