Mark George, Optometric Assistant and Manager

Eyewear Consultant, Manager at eyeDOCS Westboro, and eyeDOCS Preston

Mark has twelve years of combined experience working in the optical industry. He came to Ottawa thirteen years ago to study psychology at Carleton University. After completing his first year of post-secondary education he began working in an optical store over the summer months. His interest in the field grew as he was mentored by a newly graduated optician and the co-owner of the store. He continued in working in optometry throughout his school years and after school he moved to London, Ontario. He remained working in the optical field and gained management experience which combined with his education in psychology has enabled him to excel among the eyeDOCS team as clinic manager.

In October 2012, Mark joined the team at eyeDOCS. Mark has worked at four of the six eyeDOCS locations and in the spring of 2013 he became the clinic manager at the office in Westboro. As of February 2018, he manages the eyeDOCS Westboro and eyeDOCS Preston locations.

As the clinic manager, Mark ensures the staff at eyeDOCS Westboro and eyeDOCS Preston are communicating and working together to improve and execute the highest standards of patient care.

 

Finally, Mark is responsible for ensuring the execution of best practice procedures, for recruitment and coaching of staff members and for managing the budget for eyeDOCS Westboro and eyeDOCS Preston. Mark is also responsible for the centralization of eyeDOCS contact lens online/in-store ordering systems.

Mark can be found at eyeDOCS Westboro and eyeDOCS Preston where he further assists the sales staff by imparting product knowledge and troubleshooting any issues patients may be having with their glasses. His background in psychology is an asset when problem solving, engaging in human resource tasks, and serving patients.
