Dr. Specs Optical opened its first location in Kelowna in 1987 when Catharine Goheen saw a need to provide high quality eyewear at affordable prices. The business grew and expanded throughout the Okanagan Valley and small centres across BC.
The simple concept of providing quality eyewear at an affordable price is reflected in the Mission Statement of Dr. Specs Optical:
To provide accurately crafted eyewear, dispensed by a highly qualified team, who strive to exceed expectations of value, service and selection.
The success of Dr. Specs Optical can be attributed to being a few steps ahead of the competition in all areas of eyecare provision: professional opticians, personal service, product knowledge, quality control, and marketing.
Dr. Specs Optical continues to be a 100% BC owned and operated company.
