Chic Eyes was founded in 2015 by Optician Ryan Knight. After providing exceptional eye care services to the King City area for seven years, Ryan decided to move back to his hometown of Thunder Bay in 2022. He hand-picked Dr. Wendy Ng to take over the practice because her values and approach to eye care are similar to his own.
“I am so excited to have Dr. Ng continue growing Chic Eyes’ mission of providing high-quality products coupled with excellent service. I feel reassured knowing that our clients are in great hands!”
– Previous Owner, Ryan Knight

In the wake of personal tragedy, Douglas Anderson of Dunfermline, Scotland turned grief into innovation. When his son Leif experienced a spontaneous retinal detachment at the tender age of 5, Douglas, motivated by the limitations of traditional eye exams in children, set out to create a groundbreaking solution. In 1994, his vision came to life with the founding of Optos, a company named after the Greek word for vision. The Optomap, born from this journey, is now a revolutionary technology employed by select eye doctors to screen for various eye diseases in both adults and children. At Chic Eyes, we share Douglas's commitment to preventing avoidable blindness, which is why we've invested in the latest Optomap California machine to enhance our patient care.
