About Us


Briar
Dr. Briar Sexton
I am grateful every day for the opportunity to work as an ophthalmologist. Vision is a precious commodity and it is a pleasure to work with my patients to protect and care for their eyes.

Staying on top of new treatments and maintaining state of the art equipment is another source of pride for us at the clinic. I am active both in attending and teaching at Continuing Education events.

Since 2010 I have been actively fundraising for the Foundation Fighting Blindness. The research projects they fund bring hope for a cure for many retinal diseases.

Vancouver is an amazing city and our little block in Kitsilano is a wonderful community that we are all proud to be a part of and to share with you.

Shannon is great at working with our patients and running our visual field tests, Viktoria keeps our clinic running smoothly, and Alina works diligently to perform our diagnostic testing at the highest standard possible.


Alina 

Patient Care Coordinator & Technician 

After graduating from university, I knew I wanted to work in a fast-paced, medical setting where I could make a difference in people’s lives daily. Dr. Sexton’s clinic is the perfect setting for top of the line health care and friendly service. 

The exceptional health care professionals at this clinic seek to provide medical care for all of our patients with the highest of standards and are always looking for ways to improve patient care and efficiency. I love being challenged to work in a busy clinic which needs my constant attention to detail to complete our patient care in a timely and caring manner. Getting to know the patients of this clinic has been a privilege.


Shannon

MOA & Visual Field Technician

While studying kinesiology at the University of the Fraser Valley, I was inspired to discover that I could make a positive difference in the lives of others by working in healthcare. Working in Dr. Sexton’s clinic is the perfect opportunity for me to realize this in a fast-       paced and engaging environment.

After graduating and traveling for a few years, I have settled in Vancouver and was so happy to join Dr. Sexton’s team here. This team truly embodies the value of hard work and the joy of helping people. They inspire me to push myself and be my best every day.


Viktoria

Office Administrator 

Since making the move from Ontario to Vancouver, I have been searching for the opportunity to work with a team of highly skilled individuals that I can learn from and be inspired by. I’m happy to say I have found that in Dr. Sexton’s clinic.

The dynamic amongst the team is wholesome, professional and welcoming and I believe this translates into the way we care for our patients. I have always navigated towards roles that allow me to interact with my community because I enjoy being able to make a positive impact. I value the clinic’s efficiency, timeliness and attention to detail and I am grateful to have the opportunity to learn from the best.
