About Us








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.

Certified Ophthalmic Assistant & 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.
