Our Proud

In 1999, a graduate from the New England College of Optometry returned to his home of Vancouver with a mission to revolutionise the Eye Care industry. Dr. Altaz Shajani purchased Lynn Valley Optometry, which was located in a medical clinic with just 2 employees. Within 6 short years, the practice had outgrown its space, so they quickly upgraded to a newly designed clinic in Lynn Valley Village, designed by Westcoast designer Susan Taubensee
