We would like to extend our sincere congratulations to Dr. Leekha, who has been elected president of the British Columbia Association of Optometrists. Dr. Leekha’s fresh perspective and commitment to optometry was apparent to the board members, which inspired their votes when he wasn’t even running. We anticipate many great steps forward under his leadership to better optometry practice in BC. We are indeed proud to have a clinic where two BCAO presidents practice, as Dr. Neumann held the position from 2007-09. Our team of talented doctors are always working together to advance our scope of eyecare, so there’s no question Dr. Leekha’s new position will benefit all staff, doctors and patients of Central Saanich Optometry.
