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 optometrist takes 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 doctor:
Dr. Peter Roed moved west from Ontario after graduating from the University of Waterloo Optometry program in the late 90's. The move was as much about finding his own path and seeking new experiences as it was to find work. The Optometry program opened more then just professional doors but it sparked his ongoing love of travel and photography. With eye care missions to Mexico, exchange programs to Cuba and externships to Jamaica and Sweden, his passion for exploration of new places and cultures was born.
He is strongly connected with the community and involved in a number of charities.
Optometry has been a great and rewarding profession for him but he truly enjoys the relationships he creates with his patients; with his neighbours. Dr. Roed provides comprehensive eyecare to all ages and has a particular affinity for pediatric eyecare.
The new adventure as of late has been parenthood with three beautiful, albeit overly energetic kids; Erik, Svaja and Asha.
