Dr. Brooke Parker
Optometrist

Dr. Brooke Parker is originally from Toronto, Ontario, having spent most of his schooling years in that area.  He was a combined math, physics and chemistry, Bachelor of Science student in Toronto. He achieved his Doctorate of Optometry from Waterloo in 1978 and was fortunate to be taught at Pacific University in Oregon by Dr. Les  Walls, OD, MD to achieve MOTP certification in therapeutics in 1993. Mountains and outdoor activities strongly attracted Brooke to British Columbia and Prince George was a good place to raise children and develop a multi-doctor practice called Parker Optometry. A highlight there was flying into First Nations Native reserves to provide eye care in remote northern communities. After more than 30 years at Parker Optometry ,  Dr Parker has relocated to the Okanagan. As a senior optometrist Dr. Parker enjoys living and providing optometry care in the Okanagan. He sees patients at Inspired Eyes for complete vision and eye health assessments .

Dr. Parker’s patients appreciate that he takes the time to listen to their concerns, answer questions and teach them about their eye health. He has a special interest in contact lens fitting. His passion for educating patients about the health of their eyes is evident in the interactive and thorough examinations he provides. Dr. Parker also travels to the Caribbean with the Canadian Eye Doctors to provide eye care and glasses in a clinic where patients appreciate care for their high frequency of glaucoma.

He and his family enjoy the mountains and outdoor activities. The Parkers are active and love skiing together and bicycle touring in a new area each year.
