About
Our Practice

Improving
Lives

It’s really that simple: improving lives is our entire purpose. When we consider investing in new technology or a solution that might take more time and resources, we always ask if the decision will improve the lives of our patients.

This philosophy governs how we practice and how we grow professionally.

Our core values:
VALUE PEOPLE. GO BEYOND THE ORDINARY.
ALWAYS MOVING FORWARD. PROVIDING THE BEST.

Our Dedication
To You

When you walk into Lynn Valley Optometry, you’ll notice that we aren’t your everyday optometry clinic. Our goal is high-performance vision for our patients and we are holistic in our approach.

From eyewear to eyecare, our team and doctors are passionate about delivering a welcoming experience within our modern reception and retail area and fully-equipped examination rooms.

Our Proud
History

In 1999, Dr. Altaz Shajani, a graduate of the New England College of Optometry, returned to Vancouver with a mission of revolutionizing the Eye Care industry. Dr. Shajani purchased Lynn Valley Optometry, which was located in a medical clinic with just 2 employees. Within 6 short years, the practice grew and relocated to Lynn Valley Village, in the current clinic designed by Westcoast designer Susan Taubensee.
