About Us

Kelowna Evaluation & Training Centre

Dr. Paul Rollett, OD, FCOVD*
* Board certified in vision development & rehabilitation

Vision Therapy and neuro-visual rehabilitation have been Dr. Rollett’s optometric passion since the beginning of his career back in 2011. Suffering from a condition known as convergence insufficiency throughout his schooling years, he has personally experienced the immense benefits of the very services that Okanagan Vision Therapy provides. After completing hundreds of hours of continuing education in this field and initially offering Vision Therapy in Newfoundland, his 2013 move to the Okanagan gave him the exciting opportunity to bring these services to interior BC. Dr. Rollett has seen firsthand the importance of Vision Therapy and developmental optometry for so many (testimonials) and has made it his career’s goal to continue to expand awareness and ensure that Vision Therapy is made available to those in need.

Sheri Linquist, Administrative Guru

Sheri is the glue that keeps all administrative elements held together across our clinics. The only way we’ve found to get her off track is to ask about her golf course triumphs over husband Warren! Pleasant, easygoing and a born problem solver, she effortlessly lives up to her “guru” title.
