Our Eye Doctor in Lake Country, Near Kelowna, BC

At Lake Country Optometry our eye care professionals specialize in understanding how the human eye really works, as well as diseases and conditions that affect your vision—many of which do not always have obvious symptoms. Eye doctors know how age and risk factors affect vision over time for young and old, and they understand the benefits and features of corrective lenses, both as eyeglass lenses and contact lenses.

Our Lake Country eye doctor, Dr. Karla Reimer takes the time to explain the results of your eye exam, describe your options and listen to your eye care needs. Because maintaining good eye health is an ongoing partnership, we encourage you to ask questions and share your health information, which could be vital to monitoring, diagnosing and treating potential vision problems.

Dr. Karla Reimer

Karla Reimer grew up in southern Manitoba, except for a few years in Jamaica and Lesotho with her missionary parents. After high school she taught English in Egypt for a year.  She returned to Winnipeg for her Science Degree, and graduated from the University of Waterloo in 1995 with her Doctor of Optometry degree.  Since that time, caring for the vision and ocular health needs of her patients has become her passion.  Spending quality time with each patient allows her to identify and address individual areas of concern, and to develop relationships on a more personal level.  She has a long-term mandate to provide the community with the highest quality eye care through a professional team, dedicated to outstanding service.

Dr Brittany Rollett

Dr. Brittany Rollett hails from small-town Saskatchewan but is now very happy to call the Okanagan home. She did her undergraduate training at the University of Saskatchewan in Anatomy and Cell Biology, graduating with Great Distinction, and completed her Doctor of Optometry with Honours at the University of Waterloo.

She volunteers on sustainable eye care projects in developing nations and most recently traveled to West Africa. She has a special interest in children's vision and visual development, as well as refractive surgery management.

Dr. Rollett serves as a Peer Group Facilitator for the College of Optometrists of BC, co-chairs the PR committee for the BC Association of Optometry, and is on the Board of Directors for the BC Association of Optometry.

As BC transplants, Brittany and her husband Paul love the beaches, hiking trails and wineries that the Okanagan has to offer and feel so fortunate to be raising their family right here in Lake Country.

Dr. Samantha Laudinsky

Samantha Laudinsky began her career as a University of Manitoba graduate with a Bachelor of Science degree, where she then continued on to complete her Doctor of optometry degree from the University of Waterloo. Her two passions in life are traveling and optometry. She has had many opportunities to combine those passions with being the vice president of VOSH, which is a volunteer program that organizes optometric trips around the world.

She recently went on a month-long trip to Nicaragua where she worked alongside a local surgeon to provide glaucoma treatment, prescription glasses and cataract surgery to many patients in need. Her passion for international volunteer work has sent her across the world to help many others - including trips to Ecuador, Switzerland, and Thailand.

Samantha has a special interest in ocular disease after doing specialized rotations with both a retinal and glaucoma specialist in Atlanta, Georgia. She loves working with patients of all ages and is really excited to enjoy all that the Okanagan has to offer. When not in the clinic, Samantha and her husband, Danny, can be found enjoying the many outdoor activities that B.C. has to offer - specifically snowboarding and hiking.
