Nestled in the scenic embrace of Waterloo County, Dr. Judy Schnarr's optometric journey began at the University of Waterloo, where she earned her Doctor of Optometry in 1985. With a heart brimming with passion, she founded the thriving Pacific Eye Doctors® clinic in 1986, laying the groundwork for a legacy of exceptional vision care.
Dr. Schnarr has had a strong presence in the optometry landscape for over three decades. Serving as a councilor and chairman of Continuing Education for the BC Association of Optometrists and an integral part of the Fraser Valley Association of Optometrists executive team, she has left an indelible mark on the field. As a clinical investigator for ophthalmic manufacturers and a sought-after speaker at contact lens seminars, she has showcased her commitment to staying on the cutting edge of eye care advancements.
What fuels Dr. Schnarr's practice isn't just expertise; it's a genuine connection with her patients. Since 1985, she's been cultivating relationships, relishing patient care's human aspect, championing preventive measures, prioritizing health, and enhancing visual performance.
With a special focus on diabetes, and geriatrics, Dr. Schnarr finds joy in addressing the unique needs of these groups. She sees it as a privilege to contribute to their well-being by providing preventive measures that help them maintain their sight.
Beyond the confines of the clinic, Dr. Schnarr is a force of nature — literally! You might spot her on a hiking trail, gliding down the slope while cross-country skiing, or expressing herself through dance. Her environmentally conscious attitude and interest in nutrition, pilates, and yoga display her commitment to holistic wellness.
Her daughter, Dr. Kate Piotrowski, joined the practice in 2018, and she now co-owns the clinic and ensuring that the legacy of quality eye care continues!
