Dr. Tony Mann

Dr. Tony Mann graduated in 1993 with a Bachelor’s degree in Computer Science from the University of Alberta, and subsequently with a Doctor of Optometry in 1998 from the New England College of Optometry. The most rewarding part of his job is his interaction with his patients. After eleven years, he has gotten to know many of them on a personal level. As well, he realizes the magnitude of responsibility in caring for the wellbeing of his patients’ eyes. With the aging population and advancements in medical science, it will become more imperative for optometrists to educate their patients and provide them with superior care. Dr. Mann welcomes this challenge. He is also the proud father of two boys, who are the apples of his eyes, and gives his life meaning. His hobbies include reading, travelling, sports, and music.
