Our Eye Doctors

kfvc faqs page banner

Eye care professionals specialize in understanding how the human eye really works, as well as diseases and conditions that affect your vision – many of which do not have obvious symptoms. Eye doctors know how age and risk factors affect vision over time for young and old, and they understand the benefits and features of corrective lenses including eyeglasses and contacts.

Our optometrists in Kamloops, British Columbia take the time to explain the results of your eye exam, describe your options and listen to your eye care needs. Because maintaining good eye health is an ongoing partnership, we encourage you to ask questions and share your health information, which could be vital to monitoring, diagnosing and treating potential vision problems.

Meet Our Caring Eye Doctors in Kamloops, British Columbia:


Lindsay Williston, O.D.

Dr. Williston was born in Quesnel, but has lived in Kamloops for most of her life. She started her post secondary education at UCC (now TRU), where she obtained her Bachelor of Science before heading off to the University of Waterloo School of Optometry. She graduated in 2007 and has been with KFVC since 2008. Dr. Williston loves to spend time outdoors, hiking all year round with her husband and young son, playing soccer and rock climbing when she gets a chance and boating on the Shuswap with her family and friends!


Tyler Lowey, O.D.

Dr. Lowey was born and raised in Kamloops. He went to school at TRU and worked for KFVC as an optometric assistant before being accepted into the University of Waterloo School of Optometry. While a student at Waterloo, Tyler once again returned to our practice, this time working as a student intern. After graduating with the class of 2011, Tyler returns to us as a full-fledged Doctor of Optometry!


Mark Rowsell, O.D.

Dr. Rowsell graduated in 2014 from the University of Waterloo with a Doctor of Optometry, receiving the AOF Award of Excellence in Contact Lens Patient Care and GPLI Clinical Excellence Award. Dr. Rowsell is originally from St. John’s, Newfoundland and obtained a Bachelor of Science Degree (Honors) in Chemistry from Memorial University in St. John’s. Away from the office Dr. Rowsell will most likely be found golfing, downhill skiing or on the basketball court.


Yin Li, O.D.

Dr. Li grew up in Ontario and completed her Bachelor's degree at the University of Western Ontario and went on to attend the University of Waterloo School of Optometry, graduating in 2012. Dr. Li spent three years working and teaching at the University of Alabama at Birmingham before moving to Vancouver and practicing there for four years. She relocated to Kamloops in 2019 and is looking forward to exploring her new home with her furry labradoodle, Cooper.


As we are all faced with this unprecedented health care crisis with the spread of COVID-19, we have made the difficult decision to temporarily close our clinic.

As of 5pm March 18, we will be closed until Easter. All routine appointments are cancelled. We apologize for the inconvenience, but we feel that given the present circumstances this is the the safest move for our patients and our staff.

For URGENT eye care only, you can still reach us via phone at 778-586-4375. We will be answering phones and emails Monday to Friday from 11am – 1pm.

We will keep you informed as any changes occur.

Take care of yourself and those around you,

The Team at Kamloops Family Vision Clinic
