Meet Dr. Bryan Friedmann, Your Trusted Victoria Optometrist

Dr. Bryan Friedmann received his Bachelor of Science degree, with distinction, from Brock University in 1985. He went on to pursue his Doctor of Optometry degree at the University of Waterloo and graduated in 1989. He has worked as an optometrist in Victoria since then. Dr. Friedmann practices out of his home office in Cordova Bay, and he also sees patients out of Shelbourne Optical and Esquimalt Optical. In addition to examining patients in these locations, Dr. Friedmann is also equipped to conduct comprehensive ocular and vision examinations for non-mobile patients residing in hospitals, nursing homes, and private homes. His practice is mostly focused on providing comprehensive ocular health and vision care. He believes that his patients come first! For this reason, Dr. Friedmann has maintained an unbiased non-dispensing practice since he began private practice, and his patients trust that he has their best interests at heart. As an experienced doctor specializing in the diagnosis, treatment and management of many eye conditions such as glaucoma, cataracts, diabetic retinopathy, retinal detachments, and macular degeneration, Dr. Friedmann takes the time to listen carefully to the concerns of each patient. His patients often comment on how kind, gentle and thorough his exams are. They particularly appreciate the effort Dr. Friedmann takes to use layman terms to communicate his findings in a clear and simple way.

Dr. Friedmann loves being involved in his community. He has volunteered in  Baseball Little League and continues to donate a substantial amount of time as a Scouts Canada leader. He is currently a speaker for the Canadian Diabetes Association. Dr. Friedmann enjoys the outdoors, tries to play the guitar, and is a devout reader. He has four children and this keeps him young! He enjoys educating his patients about his findings and the options open to them. He also loves to hear a good joke from his patients.
