What Sets Us Apart

OUR PROUD HISTORY

In 1999, a recent 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.

OUR PHILOSOPHY

Improve Lives. It’s really that simple; improving lives is our entire purpose. When we consider should investing in new technology or consider a solution that might cost us more time and resources, we always ask if the decision will improve lives. This philosophy governs how we practice and how we grow professionally.
