D R. N A T A S H A L I A W was born and raised in Edmonton, AB where she received her Bachelor of Science (biology major and chemistry/psychology minor) before moving to Philadelphia, PA where she graduated with her optometric doctorate from Salus University (Pennsylvania College of Optometry).
Her passion for optometry revolves around the fact that she has had to wear glasses since she was 6 and that growing up in the 90’s with glasses was not a pretty sight for kids. Also, the many stories of patients that get tricked into buying things that don’t actually benefit their vision, has motivated her to create a clinic where her patients can trust in the advice of her staff to ensure their needs are met within their budget. Mother of two high-energy pomsky (Pomeranian Husky mix) puppies (Tesla and Poro) she is often found at the dog park on sunny days. During the rest of her free time she enjoys being active, playing board games/video games, and vlogging with her partner in crime (Dimmy).

D I M M Y C H O W was born in Venezuela but primarily raised in Vancouver, British Columbia. Growing up he was never sure of what would become of his career, but he was determined to make his mark. He began his studies in Business Administration (BA) at the Kwantlen Polytechnic University to only quickly jump to a career in the trades as an Electrician. Influenced by his business savvy father, together they did electrical work all across the lower mainland providing high end electrical services. Completing his Red Seal certification at such a young adult age, Dimmy craved for something more. In his last year of apprenticeship, he rekindled his love for business and began night classes again to finish his BA along with his apprenticeship at British Columbia Institute of Technology. Dimmy continued his studies at BCIT in Construction Management and finally Operations Management diploma—he had found his stride. The culmination of endless ups and down had landed him the opportunity and skillset to begin this new chapter in his life called Wink Optometry.
In his free time, Dimmy enjoys spending time with his two little pups (Tesla & Poro), participating in competitive volleyball, playing board games, and being creative with his new found affinity for cinematography which he shares with his partner in crime (Natasha).
