Dr. Danny Walker hails from Mississauga, Ontario, and has been practising Optometry in the Okanagan for the past two years. Dr. Walker completed both his Bachelor of Science and Doctor of Optometry degrees at the University of Waterloo, graduating in 2012. He was voted by his fellow classmates to receive the Dr. Michael Gutwein Memorial Award in his final year of Optometry school, awarded to the most social and involved student in the class. Upon graduation, he moved to Corner Brook, Newfoundland for three years, where he had the opportunity to practice full-scope Optometry in a variety of rural locations. Following his time on the Rock, Dr. Walker moved to the Okanagan, where he has enjoyed being able to provide his patients with thorough examinations and personalized eye care. He has a special interest in protecting and maintaining optimal visual health through a variety of factors that include lifestyle and nutrition.

Outside the office, Danny enjoys playing and listening to music, hiking, cooking, and pretending to know about wine with his beautiful wife, Casey.

They have raised their three sons here and have thoroughly enjoyed living the “Okanagan lifestyle”,  taking advantage of skiing, cycling and golfing.

Born and raised in the Okanagan Valley, Teal found her way into optics unexpectedly- and more than 20 years in, she’s still going strong! Her lab is her castle, and in it, Teal is busy crafting eyeglasses with care, precision, and an eye for the beautiful. She has finally hit the big leagues at Inspired Eyes, and she wants nothing more than to get her experienced hands on your newest set of glasses. When she isn’t working, you might find Teal gardening, socializing, or out and about on a patio enjoying all the Okanagan has to offer.
