  • Practice History


    Dr. David Adams opened the optometric clinic in 1978. The first location was on Duke Street across from Safeway. A few years later he moved just down the street to accommodate the growing practice. Then in 1993 Dr. Adams moved to 45 Kirkpatrick Avenue. Dr. Lisa Krasko-Turcotte purchased the practice in 2007 when Dr. Adams retired from the practice.

    We are excited to announce that we have relocated to 46 Princess Street to offer an expanded scope of eye care services!
