Best Optometrist

Jeff Sangster

It was a tough battle for best optometrist, with the top three spots being decided by a difference of one vote. But Jeff Sangster came out on top, and he says being an optometrist is a “happy” profession because people are usually quite pleased when you can help improve their vision. The 33-year-old doctor has been practising since 1998, and says even teenagers no longer dread learning they need glasses “because it can be a fashion statement.” My, how times change—Sally Jessy Raphael, anyone? 1591 Brunswick, 422-4444

1st runner-up Charles Lu, Mic Mac Eye Clinic, Mic Mac Mall, 464-0600
