Newly retired Carol began her career by working for a few large optical companies after her graduation from Ryerson University. Carol soon became dissatisfied with the lack of customer service offered, and the restrictions that come with working with a large company. 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 exceptional customer service, she has enjoyed close to four decades of providing quality eyewear.
Doreen who is semi-retired has been frame fashion consulting at the Optical Gallery since it first opened. She was given the opportunity by her good friend Carol who knew that Doreen would be a great fit. Thanks to Doreen's community involvement, she has helped the Optical Gallery welcome many wonderful new and loyal customers.
