Eye care professionals specialize in understanding how the human eye really works, as well as diseases and conditions that affect your vision – many of which do not have obvious symptoms. Eye doctors know how age and risk factors affect vision over time for young and old, and they understand the benefits and features of corrective lenses including eyeglasses and contacts.
Our optometrists in Sidney, BC take the time to explain the results of your eye exam, describe your options and listen to your eye care needs. Because maintaining good eye health is an ongoing partnership, we encourage you to ask questions and share your health information, which could be vital to monitoring, diagnosing and treating potential vision problems.
Meet our doctors:
Dr. Bourdeau received her Bachelor of Science from the University of Manitoba in 1997, and her Doctor of Optometry degree in 2001 from the University of Waterloo. From there she went on to complete a one year ocular disease residency in Miami, Florida where she worked alongside cornea, retina and glaucoma surgeons.
Since then she has been working in primary care optometry, as well as at Lasik centres comanaging surgical patients.
Dr. Lewis was born in Ontario but spent most of his life living in Victoria. His parents, who were both in the practice of ophthalmology, introduced him to vision health at a very young age. He had the opportunity to work alongside his parents in the ophthalmology clinic, as an ophthalmic assistant.
His University education began at the University of Victoria where he graduated with honours degrees in both psychology and microbiology.
He returned to his studies in Oregon earning his O.D. from the Pacific College of Optometry. He spent time training at a medical centre in rural Alaska, a veteran’s hospital in Pennsylvania, a contact lens clinic in Minnesota and an ophthalmology surgery centre in Idaho. His professional interests include ocular disease management, primary care optometry, contact lenses and surgery co-management.
Dr. Lewis could not be more excited about returning to Vancouver Island, a place he has long considered home. When not working he enjoys playing hockey, soccer and practically anything outdoors. Dr. Lewis is honoured to be joining the impressive team at Ray Dahl Optical and Optometrists. He looks forward to meeting you, and providing unique solutions to meet your specific visual needs.
