Eye Care Team

Your Trusted Optometrist in Campbell River

Eye care professionals specialize in understanding how the human eye really works, as well as diseases and conditions that affect your vision – many of which do not have obvious symptoms. Eye doctors know how age and risk factors affect vision over time for young and old, and they understand the benefits and features of corrective lenses including eyeglasses and contacts.

Our optometrist takes the time to explain the results of your eye exam, describe your options and listen to your eye care needs. Because maintaining good eye health is an ongoing partnership, we encourage you to ask questions and share your health information, which could be vital to monitoring, diagnosing and treating potential vision problems.

Teresa joined the eye care team at Campbell River Optometry Centre in 2000 after studying optometry in Austria and then returning to Campbell River.

She continues to strive to establish a warm tone for the office and enjoys assisting patients with questions and helping them choose the perfect eyewear.

In her free time, when she is not shopping for shoes, Teresa enjoys walking our city’s many beautiful trails with her husband Bruce and Rat Terrier Handley.


Kelly Kirkham


Kelly has been with the office since 2003. She takes pride in her friendly enthusiasm dealing with patients at the front desk but also enjoys the opportunity to assist with pre-testing and dispensing.

She enjoys seeing patients return year after year as well as meeting new patients who are new to the area or returning after years away.

She has spent most of her life in Campbell River. In her free time, she enjoys spending time outdoors hiking and traveling with her husband Ken and her dog Keeya.
