Our Passion

We have discovered two common passions that make our work as optometrists fulfilling and rewarding for us.

Our Passion for Making a Difference

Our Passion PlaceholderEvery patient comes into our office with vision needs. Sometimes they come with unique and challenging vision problems. In both circumstances, our work gives us an opportunity to make a difference and help patients.

Dr. Chorel has said in her biography, “My favourite part of my job is the satisfaction I feel when I have been able to help a patient with a problem and they are happy with the outcome”. Dr. Doig has said, “I feels genuinely excited when I can find the best possible eyeglass prescription for a patient, and I enjoy solving interesting and complex problems.

We recognize that our shared occupation as Optometrists provides us with ongoing opportunities to make a difference for others. If you have vision care problems that need to be addressed, we would like to make a difference for you. Please call and book your next eye exam at Doig Optometry.

Our Passion for Progressive Lenses

Progressive lenses are perhaps the most complex lenses commonly prescribed for patients. So why should we feel so passionately about these complex lenses? Because the more complex challenge of progressive lenses offers the greatest opportunity to make a difference for patients with these complex needs. Our passion for progressive lenses is an extension of our passion for making a difference.

ProgressiveLenses PlaceholderProgressive lenses have advanced dramatically in the time we’ve been practicing optometry. Advances in lens design and in the manufacturing process for progressive lenses have made it possible to be much more accurate and precise with the lenses we prescribe.

Progressive lenses are now highly customizable, giving us the greatest flexibility and opportunity to make a difference for our patients who wear them.

Being passionate about progressive lenses does not limit our passion for other fields of optometry. The skills and strategies we use to make your progressive lenses work for you are highly transferable to other eyeglass lens designs. Single vision aspheric lenses can now be designed using Free Form technology. Even in contact lenses we have the capacity to make the same level of precise measurement of the shape of the cornea, where the contact lens sits. Yes, that’s correct. There is such a thing as a Free Form Contact lens!

If you are a progressive lens wearer in need of a prescription update, we would love to put our passion for progressive lenses to work for you. If you are simply thinking of a new style or fashion in your eyeglasses or if you are a patient with other needs in eye care or eye wear, we are pleased to tell you, “We do that too.”
