MEET THE TEAM
Dr. Priya Vohora
Dr. Vohora’s caring and warm personality is partly due to her upbringing in the small town of Prince Rupert, BC, and partly due to her close family ties. She graduated as an optometrist from the University of Bradford in Bradford, West Yorkshire, UK in 2006.
Dr. Vohora then settled in BC and opened her first clinic in Cloverdale, BC in December 2012. She has over 13 years experience in the industry. In her down time, she enjoys staying active with her 2 Boston Terriers.
Maneet is a small town girl who has now called the big city her home. She was born and raised in Penticton, BC where she started to have an eye for the world of optometry clinics.
After graduation, Maneet moved to Surrey, BC where she completed her Post Baccalaureate Diploma in Human Resources at Kwantlen University. She then took on the venture of opening her own clinic with her partner Dr. Priya Vohora. During her down time she enjoys spending time with her husband and taking road trips.
