We are fortunate to have an amazing staff of optometrists, opticians, vision therapists and support staff who really care about your experience and outcome.
Our clinic began in 2012 as McCrodan Vision Development (re-named in 2018) and has grown into locations in Victoria, Nanaimo and Dr. McCrodan’s work in Brooklyn NY. Below is what Dr. McCrodan has to say.
“A year out of optometry school, I remember feeling like I was hit with a ton of bricks while on a course. Vision is really just software. It can be developed, and re-developed. It was like the engineering education I had all of a sudden meshed with optometry. It seemed so obvious.
On my quest to learn more, I realized that my sister had struggled with school because of problems with how her eyes tracked and worked together. My family had tried everything. Every doctor, every appointment, every tutor. I watched her struggle for years. This made me determined to improve testing, treatment, and awareness.
Every week there are usually tears shared during an appointment as parent is relieved to figure out why a child is struggling, when a person with a concussion or dizziness realizes there is a ‘why’ and a solution, or after treatment when we get to sit and reminisce about how things used to be.
Through this journey we have developed an incredible team. It’s really like a family of people who are so invested in our patients that it creates the most amazing environment. Learning culture is at our core, and we spend hours every week advancing our knowledge, evolving testing/procedures and improving outcomes.
I can remember a time when I was younger when I would drive home and see the LottoMax sign. I remember thinking ‘wouldn’t that be wonderful to quit work tomorrow’! Now I see the sign and think ‘wouldn’t it be wonderful to have more resources to share what we do’.
I’m so grateful for every patient that lets us share in their journey. We learn from everyone we work with, and your improvements bring meaning to our work.”
From TedX talks to pro bono workshops, and donating care to low income individuals and families, we are changing how the world sees vision one set of eyes at a time.
