Dr. Mark Pitcher purchased the current optometric practice in 1999 which eventually was renamed to Okotoks Eyecare and it was relocated to its current location.
He is grateful for the many patients that he has been privileged to serve over the years. He still finds the ever changing innovations that occur in eye care especially interesting. He believes that investing in continuing education for himself and others in the practice is extremely important. His belief is that we need to give our patients the best and the latest in innovative eyecare. His purpose is to do all we can to optimize our patients vision now and in the future.
