Dr. Pollock’s Retirement Reception

On February 9, we held a retirement reception for Dr. Pollock at our Oakville location. Throughout the night, approximately 150 people- patients, friends and family- came to give their gifts and say their goodbyes to our great doctor. Dr Pollock has been with Crown for over 20 years, and she will truly be missed by all employees and patients.

Dr. Pollock left us with, “This month marks the conclusion of my optometric career, having practiced with Crown Vision Center since 1995 and in Oakville for over 30 years.  I am grateful for the inspiration and support of my family, patients, and staff.  Thanks to Crown Vision Center, who made it possible to practice to the full extent of my professional training.  I pride myself in adding an educational component to every exam so my patients can be proactive in taking care of their eyes for life.”

We have attached some photos from the event below- feel free to look!

Thank you, Dr. Pollock. You will be missed! Continue Reading >
