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, Dr. Patterson, 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. Chad Patterson grew up just north of Regina and attended the University of Regina before heading off to the University of Waterloo where he graduated from the School of Optometry on the Dean's Honour list. During his studies, he gained knowledge and experience in ocular pathology working with retina, glaucoma, and cornea specialists in Atlanta, Georgia. Dr. Patterson also had the opportunity to work with National athletes at the Winsport medical clinic in Calgary performing baseline concussion testing. Upon graduation, he moved to Manitoba where he practised in a Vision Therapy clinic. Dr. Patterson has taken additional courses in Vision Therapy and takes a special interest in concussion rehabilitation and learning related vision disorders. When he's not practising optometry, Dr. Patterson loves to be outdoors, enjoying activities like hiking, skiing, and team sports. He also holds an ARCT diploma in piano performance from the Royal Conservatory of Music. Chad is excited to be practising back in his home province!
