Dr. Bachra and Lifetime Eyecare have also supported many non profits and important community organisations both here in Canada and internationally. Her dedication to both her patients and her community is at the very core of who she is as a person, as a mother and as an eye doctor. These organizations and projects include (but are not limited to) the Westminster House (Drug Rehabilitation Centre for Women), Optometrists Giving Eyesight, Fraserside Community Programs, the Lion’s Club, The Massey Theatre and the Annual Hyack Swim Club Invitational.
