With an undergraduate background in Biology and Biochemistry from the University of Regina, Dr. Golemba pursued his Doctor of Optometry degree at the University of Waterloo in Ontario.  Educational interests in Pediatrics and Binocular Vision were enhanced through rotations in clinics in Waterloo and Houston, Texas.

While at the Houston Eye Associates in Texas, Dr. Golemba worked under a pediatric sub-specialist and also completed internships in retina and glaucoma.  Since convocation in 2001, Dr. Golemba practiced in Victoria and did locums throughout British Columbia until 2005, when he purchased Valley Vision Optometry from Dr. Stickle, who had been practicing here since 1960.  Since then, the office has been upgraded to include computerized recording, Eyemaginations educational software, Optomap retinal exams, digital photography.

2006 saw the opening of our Vision Training department for those with binocular vision anomalies and learning disorders.  Dr. Golemba completed his core education in this area from the Optometric Extension Program Curriculum in 2008.  In 2010, Valley Vision Optometry had a complete remodel of the interior and exterior office.

Separate from clinical duties, Dr. Golemba has also been a guest speaker at several conferences both in Canada and abroad.  When not at work, Dr. Golemba enjoys hiking and biking with his wife, Shannon, their children, Aiden and Sejal, and their pug dog, Max.  Dr. Golemba is committed to ensuring you have the best eye care experience and thanks you for choosing Valley Vision Optometry.

COVID-19 UPDATE

The following is a summary of the steps we have taken to protect your safety.

Physical Distancing Measures:

o Reducing density of people: We have adopted a schedule which will reduce the amount of patients in our facility at one time.

o We will have some of our team working from home operating a call centre and tele-medicine pre-screening.

o Spacing stickers have been placed on our floor.

Engineering controls:

o Forms have been digitized and will be emailed to patients in advance of the appointment to minimize contact.

o A “For Payment" button has been installed on our website, valleyvisionoptometry.ca for patients to be able to pay from home to minimize contact.

o Plexiglass barriers have been installed at all 3 Front Desk stations

o Our doors will remain locked during Phase 2, opening the door to let in scheduled patients only.

o A dropbox has been installed for patients to drop off glasses in need of repair.

o Contact lens sales are administered through our webstore.

Administrative controls:

o Cleaning protocols have been written. Staff training on these protocols has been scheduled.

o Clear rules are posted on our front door and throughout all of the stations in our office.

Personal protective equipment:

o Patients will be required to wear a mask upon entry to the office and throughout their time with us. Those who do not have a mask will be supplied a surgical mask upon entry.

Policies around sickness:

o Employees and patients with cold or flu symptoms will be required to stay home.

Frequent hand washing:

o Patients, Doctors, and our Team will be required to wash hands upon entry and exit in to the exam rooms.

We currently are operating a reduced schedule, so are triaging patients to ensure those with the highest needs are prioritized.
