About Our Opticians
Optical Gallery's licensed health professionals skillfully interpret your prescription and give their recommendation on lenses and coatings to provide optimum visual performance, as well as frames to ensure a comfortable fit. We provide honest advice during frame selection, and take into account your personal lifestyle, and your visual and vocational needs. We also offer contact lens fitting.
Optical Gallery's Opticians are regulated by the College of Opticians of Ontario.
Carol Ann Stevenson
After completing her education at Ryerson University, Carol began her career by working for a few large optical companies. However, after a while she became dissatisfied with the level of customer service offered, and the restrictions that come with working with a large company. So, in Carol's true entrepreneurial spirit, she decided to take a risk and start her own optical business. In 1985, Carol opened the Optical Gallery, and after many years of successful business, her daughter Anna joined her. Due to Carol's hard work and dedication to her patients, along with her exceptional customer service, she has enjoyed three decades of providing quality eyewear.
Anna is the second-generation owner of the Optical Gallery. She has been a licensed Optician for over 20 years, and prides herself on her locally owned and operated business. Anna grew up and attended public and high school (Go Trojans!) right here in Hanover. She also raced horses with her family and began her karate training in the area, among several other great things. Although Anna doesn't currently reside in Hanover due to family commitments, she continues to make the daily trek to Hanover to maintain her ongoing dedication to the Optical Gallery. Anna truly appreciates returning patients and those making their first visit. She enjoys hearing how their visit to the Optical Gallery was because of another patient's satisfaction. That tells her and the team that they're doing it ALL right!
Jessica attended Georgian College at the Barrie campus in 2010, and enrolled in the Opticianry course. During that time, she completed her co-op placement with the Optical Gallery. Upon her successful completion of the course with Honours and the provincial licensing examinations, she joined our team full time as a licensed Optician. Jessica has lived in this area her whole life, and has now settled in Paisley with her husband Evan. She enjoys being able to provide clients with quality eyewear that's stylish, and meets their individual needs.
Doreen is our Mildmay girl whom everyone knows and loves. She has been frame fashion consulting at the Optical Gallery since it first opened. She was given the opportunity by her good friend Carol Ann, who knew that Doreen would be a great fit. Doreen plays an important role in keeping the store operating smoothly as she assists with many of the administrative duties. Thanks to Doreen's community involvement, she has helped the Optical Gallery welcome many wonderful and loyal customers. When Doreen is not at the Optical Gallery, she is busy with her cheerleading position at her grandchildren's hockey, baseball and soccer games.
