What Sets Us Apart

Our Proud History

In 1999, a recent graduate from the New England College of Optometry returned home to his home of Vancouver with a mission to disrupt the Eye Care industry. Dr. Altaz Shajani purchased Lynn Valley Optometry, which was located in a medical clinic with just 2 employees. A short 6 years later and the Practice experienced high growth and needed more space. They quickly upgraded to a newly designed clinic in Lynn Valley Village, designed by Westcoast designer Susan Taubensee.

Our Current Philosophy

Improve Lives. It’s really that simple. Based on the philosophy rooted in the book Noble Purpose: How to Drive Revenue and Do Work That Makes You Proud authored by Lisa McLeod, improving lives is our noble purpose. When we are deciding whether or not we should invest in new technology or recommend a solution that might cost us more time and resources, we always ask if the decision will improve lives. We allow this philosophy to govern how we practice.

We Value People

Our patient-first mission is made real by every team member at LVO. Each member on the team shares the practice mission and completes advanced training each year to stay current on the latest developments in their field. We know you have choice and we do everything we can to ensure you choose us, time and again.

We Exceed the Ordinary

You can get an eye exam anywhere. You can buy glasses anywhere. We’ve taken every opportunity to create an experience that you can’t get anywhere. This includes our training, our technology and our selection. We look for ways to distinguish ourselves from the ordinary and are continuing to innovate our services and patient experience.

Our Distinctions

We have been a multiple time selection and winner of the North Shore News Reader’s Choice Awards for Favourite Optical Store. It takes an entire team to earn achievements like this and we are very proud to run a Practice that our Patients feel strong enough to cast a vote in our direction. Thank you!
