A second generation optometrist, Dr. Prentice has had a long-standing relationship with optics and eye health. His father, Vernon Sr., was an optometrist in Renfrew, Ontario and his brother Jim was a dispensing optician for many years in Ottawa, Ontario.
After graduating from the University of Waterloo in 1982, Dr. Prentice gained experience working for a large optometric practice in Ottawa. In late 1985, he then acquired Dr. Frank Lynch’s practice here in Pembroke, Ontario. In 2001 he moved to his current location at 481 Mackay St. and has recently updated his methods of practice which includes state-of-the-art optometric equipment.
Dr. Prentice and his staff are committed to providing excellence in vision testing, eye health examinations, and eyewear products. We take pride in looking after you and in creating a pleasing experience when you visit. We hope to earn your trust and look forward to forming a life long relationship with you, your family, and your friends.
