Director of Operations
Dawn Drever has been with Lifetime Eyecare since 2006 and has developed into a critical role within the company. Dawn’s role with Lifetime Eyecare has expanded and she was recently named Director of Operations since her contributions to our growth have been tremendously important. Dawn has helped Lifetime Eyecare to truly develop its “destination” reputation as a high-service, designer eyeglass frame centre.
At the same time Dawn has also assisted Dr. Bachra and Paul Slusher in developing internal managerial systems and developing the Ophthalmological section of Lifetime Eyecare’s eyecare practice. There is no doubt that Dawn is a highly valued part of our managerial team and serves as the floor leader among our very talented and cohesive eyecare staff.
Dawn and the entire Lifetime Eyecare team is 100% dedicated to serving you, making sure every time you visit Lifetime Eyecare you leave saying “They are the best!”

Head Optical Lab Expert & Director of Lab Operations
Yiannis comes to us from the beautiful nation of Greece, but since being in Canada he has accomplished a great deal. Yiannis has worked as a top level Optical Lab Expert nearly his entire life and lens expert, having worked with Essilor labs more recently and having been involved in optics since a very young man in Greece.
Yiannis joined our team in 2015 and our lab has never been the same since. His never-ending drive for “the perfectly edged lens” and total accuracy with all his measurements has meant that we have experienced less returns in the past year than any previous year in our 83 year history. That is truly an amazing feat.
