The Eye Care For You optometry clinic held its grand reopening on Saturday, April 13 and a number of local dignitaries were on hand to join in the celebration including Ottawa Mayor Jim Watson and Orléans MPP Marie-France Lalonde who has been a patient at the centre since 2014.

"We started coming here about five years ago and we love it," says Lalonde. "It has a real neighbourhood feel to it and they really look after their clients."

For years the clinic was owned and operated by Dr. Linda Kwasnick, but Dr. Jenna Bender, who used to be a patient herself, took over the operation last year. The grand reopening follows a number of renovations to the office space and Dr. Kwasnick's official retirement last month.

Over 100 people took advantage of the grand reopening to reacquaint themselves with the clinic and check out the renovations while Ottawa artist Mique Michelle painted a mural in the waiting area with the help of her assistant Marcus. A number of people also and take advantage of the grand reopening sale which allowed them to save at least 10 per cent off new eyewear.

"Everyone seems to be enjoying themselves and enjoying the sale," said Dr. Bender who was justifiably thrilled with the turnout. "I've met a lot of old clients and we've picked up a few of new clients as well."

The Eye Care For You - Orléans Optometry is located at 7778 Jeanne d'Arc Blvd. just west of Champlain Road. You can visit their website at
