Our Story

Our Past...

For the past 75 years, the Bullock Family have been part of the optical industry in Vancouver. In 1946, Gary’s Dad – Albert G. Bullock began his long lasting career at Toric Optical working in the lab surfacing optical lenses. He later became the familiar face as the optician in the downtown Woodward’s building.

Gary followed in his father’s footsteps at the tender age of 13 in 1969. Leslie began her optical career in 1986 while still in University. In 1988, Leslie and Gary met working at an independent optical practice in Surrey, BC and married in 1991. In 1993, they opened their first boutique in Richmond and since then, expanded to the west side of Vancouver, always putting great emphasis on both eyewear & eyecare.
