About Us

We are a locally owned and operated eye health group with two locations in Winnipeg. Our eye health group employs four Doctors of Optometry (ODs) who provide primary vision care. This includes vision correction, as well as the diagnosis and treatment of various eye conditions. A referral to an ophthalmologist is provided when necessary for treatment of eye diseases. We also diagnose and monitor systemic diseases such as hypertension and diabetes (which often first appear in the eye). Each location is equipped with a full service optical dispensary, supported by technicians and optometric assistants ready to meet your vision needs.

Optometry is a diverse profession; in addition to the diagnosis and treatment of eye health problems and other health issues, optometrists provide referrals to specialists and other health care professionals, as necessary. The profession can also include the sale of corrective glasses and contact lenses, both in the clinic, and in the case of contact lenses, online through our website. Family Optical is pleased to embrace all aspects of this unique profession and to provide these services with the highest degree of professionalism and care.

The Family Optical team of optometrists, technicians and staff has been providing quality eye and health care for people of all ages since 1983.
