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.

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!
Dr. Lowey was born and raised in Kamloops, BC. He completed his Bachelor of Science in Cellular, Molecular and Microbiology at Thompson Rivers University in 2006 and his Doctor of Optometry (Deans’ Honors List) in 2011. An educational interest in glaucoma was enhanced at clinics in Waterloo, ON and in New York City, NY. While in New York, Dr. Lowey worked under a glaucoma specialist at the St. Albans VA Medical Center.
Other optometric areas of interest for Dr. Lowey include myopia (nearsightedness) management, specialty contact lenses, ocular disease management and the co-management of refractive surgery.
Dr. Lowey has a special connection to Kamloops Family Vision Clinic as he was a patient of the now retired Dr. Mario Pozza all his life. It was Drs. Pozza and Shamenski who employed him at office in the summers, and then recruited him to join the practice after his graduation.
He is a proud father to his son, Oscar, and husband to his wife, Tammy. When he is not looking at eyes, he enjoys watching movies, reading and spending time outdoors and exploring with his family. In the wintertime you can find him getting his heart broken by the Kamloops Blazers.
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.
