In 1994, Dr. Angela Dobson joined the eye care practice and in 1998, Dr. Avila Cox was also welcomed to the office. The office was expanded and enlarged again in 2001 within Sunnyside Mall.  The practice grew again with the addition of Dr. Raman Parkash in 2006.

In 2012, Dr. Parkash relocated to Halifax and Dr. Erin Sheppard joined our practice.
