Meet Our Optometrists in Bracebridge
Born and raised in Bracebridge, it was only natural that Dr. David Cox would return to his hometown upon graduation from the University of Waterloo in 1984.
He purchased the optometry practice from his great-uncle, Dr. Philip Thomas, who had established it in 1935. From the antique eyeglass display in the foyer, you can tell this long-standing history is as important to Dr. Cox as it is to the many patients who trust one of their most valued senses to his and his colleagues' care.
Over the years, Dr. Cox’s practice continued to expand, requiring the addition of Dr. Tracy Stager in 1996, Dr. Dina Witko in 2008, and Dr. Nicole Hatfield in 2019 to help with the growing number of patients.
In addition to his practice in Bracebridge, Dr. Cox has cultivated loyal patients in both Gravenhurst and Huntsville, who now regularly travel the extra distance to see him. In return, Dr. Cox maintains extended office hours.
The doctors strive to ensure that patients receive the best possible care, not only in terms of glasses and contact lenses, but also in the detection and monitoring of many different diseases including diabetes, macular degeneration, high blood pressure, glaucoma, cataracts and more.
Dr. Cox’s office also offers preliminary workup and follow-up for laser eye surgery, reducing the out-of-own travel to the actual procedure only. Prescription in hand, patients will find a wide selection of frames, prescription sunglasses, contacts and eyewear accessories available on site.
“I treat people as I prefer to be treated myself. They leave knowing they’ve had a complete eye exam and know they’ve been listened to.”
Dr. Cox has won the Examiner’s Reader’s Choice award for 11 years and in 2010 won the Bracebridge Chamber of Commerce Business of the Year Award.
