Dr. Nazima Sangha, originally from the West Coast, earned a Bachelor of Science in Microbiology with Honours from UBC and a Doctorate of Optometry from the Pacific University College of Optometry in Oregon. With great pleasure she joined the team at the Family Eyecare Centre in 2010. Dr. Sangha believes vision is far more than seeing 20/20. She is passionate about diagnosing and treating visual inefficiencies including those related to coordination of eye muscles, the ability to see depth (binocular vision), the ability to focus the eyes and to process visual information. She is the Clinical Director of the Vision Therapy Program at Family Eyecare Centre where individualized therapy services help people to attain their full visual potential. Dr. Sangha is also a Full A Registrant of the College of Optometry allowing her to manage eye diseases including glaucoma.
Dr. Sangha has been a Clinical Director with the Medical Program here in Victoria. She has also traveled with the Third World Eye Care Society (TWECS) and Amigos Eyecare to Romania, Honduras and Kenya to provide free eye care and eye wear to those most in need. It was in Kenya that she met Dr. LeRoy as a team member of TWECS. Locally, she has also volunteered with Special Olympics, the annual Diabetes Fair, sun-awareness programs and served as one of the youngest Council Members for the British Columbia Association of Optometrists. She also served as Chair of the the Greater Vancouver Optometric Society for two years and has earned the Tole Greenstein Award from the Northwest Congress of Optometry.
