Our Optometric Assistants

Our Optometric Assistants assist the Doctors of Optometry in the delivery of eye health care services. Our Optometric Assistants see a vast array of patients from all walks of life; infants, children, men, women, seniors, able-bodied and disabled.

Many of our staff are designated Certified Canadian Optometric Assistants. This means that unlike some establishments, each staff member has studied, has been trained under supervision and tested on their skills prior to receiving certification and continues their education throughout their career.

Do you have a spouse or family member with dementia? Is your child extremely nervous or anxious about their eye exam? Please let our staff know and they will do their best to gently accommodate these patients and help them feel more comfortable.
