About Us

Dr. André St George graduated from the University of Waterloo in 1987 and established his first clinic, Gloucester Family Optometrists, in the east end of Ottawa. In 1988, Dr. Evelyn St George graduated from the University of Waterloo and joined her husband, André, in the clinic.

In 1993, Drs. André and Evelyn opened a second clinic, Almonte Family Optometrists to meet the needs of patients in Almonte, west Ottawa and the surrounding area.

Dr. Brad Perras, who has been an important member of our team of four eye doctors since 2016, took over the practice with his wife, Dr. Teresa Stokes, late in 2021, continuing the tradition of this husband and wife led practice.

We are so pleased that all of our patients will continue to receive the same level of exceptional care by our very committed team.

It is a privilege to have been providing vision and eye care services in the Ottawa area for more than 30 years. Many patients who started with our clinics as children or young adults continue to attend our clinics, often with their own children.

The philosophy of our doctors and staff has always been to provide the best possible eye and vision care for every patient that entrusts their eye care to us, in a professional and compassionate environment. We thank our patients for the trust that they have shown us and look forward to continuing to serve them and their families for many years to come.
