Pacific Eye Doctors by Sarah Gordon

Dr. Stephanie Brooks and I met recently to discuss Pacific Eye Doctors. We sat outside on a sunny winter day while we had coffee and chatted. The ability to enjoy the great outdoors year round was a large part of the reason Dr. Brooks was attracted to the West Coast and moved here from Toronto in 1993. In 1986 Pacific Eye Doctors opened its first location in Richmond. The eye clinic was formed through the amalgamation of two established optometric clinics in the area. Founding partner optometrists, Dr. Mockler, Dr. McNab and Dr. Vetsch, determined that a second location would benefit the Dunbar area, which is where they also happen to reside, and opened the second clinic in 2004.
They sought a partner and brought Dr. Brooks on board to assist with offering excellence in eye care to the community. In addition to Dr. Brooks, Dr. Tod McNab also owns Dunbarâ€™s Pacific Eye Doctors. While they remain owners, Dr. Vetsch has retired and Dr. Mockler has taken a leave from general practice to establish the Performance Vision Clinic at the Fortius Institute for Sport & Health in Burnaby. Rounding out the Dunbar team of optometrists is Dr. Laura Langford, and Dr. Goleta Amirli. Pacific Eye Doctors make their patientsâ€™ health a top priority by committing to continuing education. They strive to create an environment where all people are treated with fairness, honesty and respect. The clinic invests in state of the art technology to provide the highest standards of care. Comprehensive eye examinations include measurement of vision, prescriptions for eyeglasses or contact lenses, assessment of binocular vision, and full ocular health check with pupil dilation.
