Established in 1989, Boardwalk Optometry has two locations serving South Surrey, Guildford and the surrounding areas. Our family-run clinics provide a wide range of services that spans much more beyond primary care. A hearing clinic was introduced into the South Surrey location in 2007, expanding our services even more.
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.
Dr. Daphne Wong-Kamachi was born and raised in Ottawa, and earned her Doctor of Optometry at the University of Waterloo.

Being passionate about treating dry eye disease, she introduced exciting cutting-edge treatments into Boardwalk Optometry, enhancing patient care even further. In her spare time, Dr. Wong-Kamachi enjoys tennis, clam digging and sampling her family’s culinary skills.

Dr. Lauren B. Kamachi grew up in Surrey, then moved to New York to earn her Bachelors of Science in Biology at Stony Brook University. During her collegiate softball career, she earned First-Team All-Conference honors playing for Division 1 at Stony Brook University, and has played for Team BC. She then moved to Philadelphia and earned her Doctorate degree from the Pennsylvania College of Optometry at Salus University in 2020. Dr. Kamachi is passionate about providing full-scope optometric care to her patients, especially the pediatric population. Utilizing her experiences as a competitive athlete while understanding how the eyes are used in academics and athletics, she created the Vision Therapy and Sports Vision Performance Clinics at Boardwalk Optometry. In her free time, Dr. Kamachi enjoys playing sports, travelling, and spending time with loved ones.
