Meet Dr. Boyd
Dr. Boyd is the chief medical director for BoydVision and a staff surgeon at Burnaby General Hospital. A graduate from University of Alberta, Dr. Boyd completed his ophthalmology residency at the University of Ottawa, subsequently obtained his American Board of Ophthalmology qualification in 1986. He has studied and performed ophthalmic procedures under several leading ophthalmologists in England, Saudi Arabia and the United States, and performed 25,000 surgical procedures to date.
The staff of BoydVision Centre are experienced, dedicated, and caring. Our medical technologist has been involved in laser eye surgery since the very first procedure was done in Canada in 1990. Our laser technician assisted in thousands of procedures before joining us in 2002.
Alicia has been part of the BoydVision team since she graduated high school. She worked full time for over 10 years. Although she has gone on to another career as an RMT she is still working remotely and will always be part of the team. The patients always remember and ask about her. She started at the reception, became the surgical coordinator and also trained to work and assist in the operating room. She now handles some of her BoydVision responsibilities remotely while balancing her new career as RMT and her family life as mother of three.
Bonnie is a Medical Office Assistant that our patients really like. Her personality is well suited to helping our patients. She came for an eye exam one day and was hired instantly. She began working with Dr. Boyd in 2001 and is currently the surgical coordinator, bookkeeper who is also involved with the marketing and management of the surgical centre. She is very knowledgeable about the procedures at BoydVision and will be happy to answer any of your questions.
Candy is a Certified Ophthalmic Assistant and lens implant consultant for cataract patients. She has been working with BoydVision since 1996. Patients love her ability to make everyone smile with her happy personality. She is fluent in Mandarin and Cantonese. Candy has had PRK surgery herself and more recently cataract surgery with multifocal lens implants, making her an ideal person to talk to about eye surgery here at BoydVision.
Jenn started working at BoydVision in May of 2019. She has many years of experience as an MOA and scheduling patients at her previous clinic. She made a decision to make a change in her career and we are happy to have found and hired her. Jenn is the quietly confident and kind voice you hear on the phones and when you come to the desk to check in. Jenn is a pleasure to work and always smiling and happy when dealing with patients. She is also trained to work in the surgical room, working with patients for their pre and post operative care. She also has a Medical Device Reprocessing certificate. Let’s just say she can do almost everything at BoydVision. She also speaks Tagalog.
Sara started working at BoydVision in summer of 2020. She comes from a surgical centre in Alberta and (they expressed their sadness in losing her) but gave us their highest regard for her professionalism and work ethic. She has trained and worked from the front office, to technician and testing and then to become the lead staff and laser safety officer in the operating room. She is also one of our Medical Device Reprocessing staff. She shares her knowledge with patients at their initial consult and discusses the best options for correcting their vision. We admire her desire to continue to study and gain more knowledge to benefit the efficiency of BoydVision.
Katrina is one of our most recent team members. She started in June 2021 and in a very short time she has become an important and very capable staff member. She is friendly and informed about all procedures performed here. In February 2022 she made the decision to have Femto laser surgery to improve her eyesight and can give you first hand knowledge of the procedure and how she is enjoying her new vision. Katrina also speaks three languages, Mandarin, Cantonese and Korean.
Heather has been working part time for many years while she was in high school and during her university years. Now she has a degree and has decided to work full time. We have known Heather since she was very young as her mother, Candy, also works here for over 24 years. She has become an important part of our office, helping with all aspects from reception to the surgical suite.
In September 2020, Heather had PRK surgery to improve her vision and can give you firsthand knowledge of her experience. She continues to study and make herself more knowledgeable about Ophthalmology to the benefit of our office. We are happy she has joined the BoydVision team/family.

2. Cataract surgery at BoydVision’s surgical center.
BoydVision’s surgical facility offers a wider range of eye care services ranging from laser vision correction to cataract surgery and lens exchange. Once the initial consultation is completed, cataract surgery and lens exchange can be performed at BoydVision’s surgical facility in a relatively short period of time. Without the delay of public care waiting lists, you can get back to your active and mobile lifestyle whenever you are ready.
3. Your surgeon works with you throughout the eyecare process.
Most clinics use technicians as the primary eyecare professional dealing with the patient, especially with pre- and postoperative care. Laser eye surgery at BoydVision involves eyecare with Dr Boyd throughout the process. Laser vision correction is safe with minimal risk, but Dr Boyd remains actively involved in all steps to ensure the best eyecare possible.
4. Custom treatment to minimize side effects.
Custom Laser Vision correction (wavefront-optimized topography-based treatment) is premium technology – enhancing the quality of your results and minimizing the potential for glare and night vision side effects. However, BoydVision’s price is equal to or lower than most other laser clinics’ conventional price. BoydVision offers custom LASIK and custom PRK – which are superior to their standard counterparts.
5. You can say ‘goodbye’ to your reading glasses.
We offer Laser Blended Vision to help patients over 40 to say goodbye to their reading glasses. BoydVision now offers Laser Blended Vision treatment, a revolutionary laser technology to counter the effects of aging in the eyes, and significantly reduce the need for reading or progressive bifocal glasses.
6. You can choose to include your existing optometrist in post-op care.
The postoperative care can be shared or delegated to your own eyecare professional—sometimes because of location (out-of-town clients) or preference. We are happy to work with your optometrist to ensure your laser treatment is as effective and convenient as possible.
7. You can choose from multiple surgical solutions.
We offer multiple solutions to meet a wide range of vision care needs. BoydVision offers a variety of surgical options including both laser and ophthalmic surgery. Many patients who have been told they are not suitable for laser eye surgery find that BoydVision offers a procedure that is the right solution for improving their vision.
8. Low cost financing available.
We are pleased to offer financing options through Medicaid. (up to $2400 for laser eye surgery). The application forms are available at our office, or you may apply directly online at www.medicard.com. For more information, you can also email email@example.com. The financing must be applied for and approved prior to surgery.
