Prairie Eye Care gladly assists aspiring optometry students gain experience and knowledge in the field by providing employment and/or doctor shadowing opportunities prior to their acceptance into the optometry program of their choice.
Please contact the Prairie Eye Care office for more details about the Prairie Eye Care Mentorship Program.
We are proud to give back to the communities that our offices serve.
Our offices take part in ONESIGHT events, that sponsor eye care and eye exams for children and adutls. In 2014 we were happy to volunteer our services with the Luxottica Vision Van and help over 100 children see better, all in ONE DAY!
We have also established an academic scholarship for an eligible student athlete at a West End High School in Winnipeg. The photo shows Dr. Owusu and Dr. Phipps presenting the Prairie Eye Care Scholarship at the receipient's convocation.
Did you know that classroom learning is 80% visual? Almost 25% of children today have undetected vision problems that are holding them back! If a student isn't seeing well, they are not performing up to their potential.
The Little Eyes Program is Prairie Eye's dedication to infant eye sight. Accepting patients as young as 6 months old, Prairie Eye Care optometrists perform tests to evaluate eye health, tracking ability, focusing, eye alignment and eye teaming. Bring your little one in for an eye exam TODAY. There is no out of pocket charge for children under 19 years old! Please contact your nearest Prairie Eye Care office for more details on this program.
