Our Optometrists

Dr. Joel Schaefer

Dr. Schaefer graduated on the Dean’s Honours List from the University of Waterloo in 2008 with his Honours Bachelor of Science and Optometry Degree. He was awarded the RACH memorial award for demonstrating undefeatable courage, strength, perseverance and determination.

Training under numerous surgeons at the Houston Eye Associates enhanced Dr. Schaefer’s knowledge in ocular disease and his ability to provide comprehensive care for all ages. Dr. Schaefer has a special interest in pediatric care, dry eye disease and macular degeneration. He believes healthy eyes starts with education, which is why he takes time to explain all tests, results and treatment plans in terms that make sense to you.

Since graduation Dr. Schaefer has been practicing full-scope optometry in Georgetown and happily resides in town with his wife and daughter.

Dr. Bruce Foley

Dr. Foley graduated from the School of Optometry at the University of Waterloo. After spending time as a clinical supervisor at the school, he established a full-scope practice in Georgetown, Ontario.

Dr. Foley’s focus has been full-spectrum family eye care, from pediatrics to geriatrics. He has a special interest in co-management of refractive surgery, including LASIK and PRK, and strives to maintain cooperative relationships with family doctors and ophthalmologists to ensure the best care for his patients.

In 2016 Dr. Foley relocated from downtown Georgetown to a new facility in Georgetown South, where he practises with optometrist, Dr. Joel Schaefer. The move has provided access to some of the most sophisticated diagnostic equipment available to optometrists, which has enhanced the eye and vision care Dr. Foley is able to provide.

Thank you for entrusting us with your vision. We look forward to seeing you soon!
