Welcome to our new Optician Quinton.
Quinton has just recently joined our team following graduation from the optician program offered by Oulton College in Moncton.
Originally from the Annapolis Royal area, he spent several years in Halifax and Montreal working for an online contact lens dispensary. This led him to pursue a career in eye care.
Quinton worked at our Annapolis and Digby locations as a student and is excited to become a member of our team.
