Meet Brampton Optometrist Dr. Renis Lapienis

Dr. Renis Lapienis is the head of the optometry team here at iSmile Optometry in Brampton. He founded the practice with his wife Dr. Lorraine Kelleher who heads the dental team, approximately 30 years ago. They have been working together ever since, forming lasting relationships with their patients, and providing quality dental and eye care in a close-knit, and family-like environment.20120423-IMG_7283-2

Practicing optometry for 30 years now, Dr. Lapienis especially enjoys working from his own optometry practice in Brampton, because of the savings he can pass on to his valuable patients – “Having my own office reduces my cost of running a business, so our patients can save on eyeglasses, contact lenses, service fees, and they don’t have to rush when making important decisions or when choosing the right eyewear.”

Dr. Lapienis describes himself as a passionate and detail-oriented optometrist whose goal is to meet all the vision health needs of his patients.

A graduate of the University of Waterloo, Dr. Lapienis is always seeking to continue his education, attending regular optometry seminars, workshops, and conventions.

He has held numerous positions with several optometry organizations, including assessor at the School of Optometry at the University of Waterloo and fellow of the American Academy of Optometry (FAAO). Dr. Lapienis has been on the board of the Vision Institute of Canada for 10 years, where he served as treasurer and president. He is also a member of the Ontario Association of Optometrists, and the Canadian Association of Optometrists.

Dr. Lapienis’ passions away from the office include playing bridge and billiards, exercising, traveling, and fixing things around the home.
