The Doctors

Dr. David Dowe


After receiving an undergraduate degree in Biology from UVIC, Dr. Dowe volunteered with eye doctors in remote areas of Guyana, South America, where he lived with the indigenous people for four months, assisting Canadian and American eye doctors treat the underserved locals. When he returned to Canada, he applied and was invited into the Doctorate of Optometry program at Pacific University, in Oregon. After his training he completed an internship at Tyndall Airforce Hospital, Panama City, Florida. Dr. Dowe has a lovely wife as well as three grown boys. When not running a full practice, he enjoys his West Coast summers full of boating adventures with family and friends.

It is so important to love where you work....and I do. Everyday we collectively meet, greet and care for others. We want to know who our patients are and how they live. Working here embraces so much more than eyecare and eyewear. I am thankful to have had my path lead me to this profession. It is the perfect balance between medicine and fashion. Pinch me!

I am so grateful! My passion for eye care & eyewear has led me to 35 years of fun! I love adorning our gallery with beautiful eyewear. My experience and my passion for fashion continues here in Comox after relocating from Vancouver. I am originally made in Sweden. I am always seeking adventures and I love to spend time outdoors with a camera. Also in having a play day in my garden with my Rhodesian Ridgebacks Odin and Enzo ... how blessed am I.

I am originally from Prince Edward Island and came to the Comox Valley thanks to the military. I live in Campbell River and have a beautiful oceanside commute to VisionWorks every day. Since my family is not from BC, the VisionWorks Optometry Team has truly become my second family. I pride myself with creating a "fabulous experience" when working with our clients. If I am not at work you will find me doing anything outdoors unless I have my nose in a book. I love to learn.

I was a patient at VisionWorks for 10 years before I joined the team! I have a strong background in the medical office field and am here to help with your experience. You will often find me greeting you at the front desk or in the pre-test room. It’s a privilege to work in such a positive environment with so many learning opportunities at every corner.

I am a Comox original and am thankful for this paradise I live, work and play in. I care for our clients prior to seeing the doctors and I am the dry eye coordinator. I am grateful that I get to do what I love and spend time with such warm and kind people, the VisionWorks Team feel like family to me. After hours I enjoy boating, playing the piano, painting and watching vintage moves and TV shows!

I was born and raised in Inuvik, NT and moved to Vancouver Island to attend university. I knew VisionWorks was where I wanted to work the first time I came here! I appreciate the amazing eyewear and services we offer and the sense of family and community VisionWorks creates. VisionWorks nurtures my passion for fashion and great client care. Outside of work I enjoy competitive curling, camping and playing music.
