Dr. Mark Paquette

Dr. Mark Paquette

Dr. Paquette is the newest optometrist to join the McCrodan Vision Development team, located in Victoria, British Columbia.

Born and raised on Vancouver Island, his road to practicing behavioural optometry started with an interest in helping others reach personal goals as a certified personal trainer, followed by a passion for coaching young athletes in gymnastics, diving, and basketball. Always keen to maintain his roots in athletics, you will often catch Dr. Paquette running though Beacon Hill Park, cycling on the Galloping Goose trail, and surfing the southern shores of Vancouver Island.

While obtaining a BSc in Biopsychology from the University of Victoria, Dr. Paquette spent his summer terms as a search and rescue crew member/medic for the Canadian Coast Guard, learning acute care skills and assisting mariners in distress. Combining his interests in neuroscience with medical care, Dr. Paquette was drawn towards The School of Optometry and Vision Science at Waterloo University.

As an optometry student, Dr. Paquette volunteered for two eye care missions to impoverished areas of Central America with ICare International, and continues to work in areas of need, providing First Nations eye care to remote coastal communities in our province. Locally, Dr. Paquette volunteers his time speaking at hospitals and community centers, and looks forward to extending this to more on the Island and beyond.

Dr. Paquette is a member of the Victoria Optometry Association, the British Columbia Optometry Association, the Canadian Association of Optometrists, the College of Optometrists in Vision Development, the Canadian Optometrists in Vision Therapy and Rehabiltation, the Neuro Optometric Rehabiliation Association, and follows teachings by the Optometric Extension Program in behavioural optometry.

Dr. Paquette is proud to call Victoria his home, and looks forward to helping the community through neuro and visual rehabilitation.
