Robin

Optometric Assistant

Born and raised here in Ottawa, Robin has now been in the optical industry for 10 years. Here at Bastien and Prizant Optometry, she is responsible for assisting the Optometrists by performing all of the retinal imaging and pretesting required for our patient’s eye exams. The most definitive experience in her career so far was being able to witness a baby seeing her parents clearly for the first time. Robin knew the optical industry would be a lifelong journey from that moment on.

À partir de ce jour-là, Robin a su que l'industrie de l'optique serait pour elle un voyage de toute une vie.
