about us

Meet our Team


Dr Lindsay Kamachi

Optometrist

Dr. Kamachi’s passion for the eyes peaked in his fourth year with this question when he studied neurobiology at the University of British Columbia: How do our brains see? In 1984, after completing his Bachelor of Science, he continued his quest at the University of Waterloo in Ontario where he earned his Doctor of Optometry degree in 1988. He returned to his hometown of New Westminster where he became an associate in several local offices. Along with his wife, Daphne, he established Boardwalk Optometry first in the White Rock, and then in the North Surrey well over 30 years ago. All encompassing eye care health including physical and mental well being, stress relief, nutrition, eye protection, disease prevention, sports vision and myopia control are some of the important aspects of his patient care. When he is not in the office or serving on the Board of Examiners in Optometry, he enjoys tennis, volleyball, skiing and softball, quiet times with his bonsai trees in his garden, and of course travelling to far away places where he still ponders how our brains see.
