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’m originally from Sweden and recently relocated from the mainland where I have been an licensed optician and frame stylist for over 30 years. I’ve always said “a face is a great work of art and deserves a great frame!” I’m so blessed to continue my passion for eyewear & eyecare with the great team at VisionWorks Optometry in the beautiful Comox Valley.

I have the best job in the world! I get to meet new people every day and get to know all of our patients and customers better. I even get to hug a few! Getting to know the hearts of who I spend my day with is why I am here. I am the face who usually greets you when you come through our door. It is my goal to make this feel like home to you.

I love what I do. I have ever changing days filled with inspiring patients and fantastic co-workers. I help patients with their eye care and eyewear. Teaching contact lens care or being the fashion police is just a part of my amazing day. I moved here from PEI in 2015....I found VisionWorks...and they found me.
