Studies show a direct correlation between poor vision and poor performance in class, and in other areas of a child's life.

Dr. Kerr was born and raised in Calgary and attended Queen Elizabeth High School but moved to Henry Wise Wood from where he graduated in 1970. He went on the University of Calgary and majored in Zoology. He was accepted into the University of Waterloo School of Optometry after 2 years of undergraduate university. He graduated from the U of W, School of Optometry in 1976 and entered private optometric practice with Dr. Austin Forsyth and Dr. Brent Beaton in Saskatoon.
His early years in practice were spent building a practice with a special interest in contact lenses and children's vision and its impact on learning. He spent several years on the Advisory Board of the Saskatchewan Association for children with Learning Disabilities and continue to have a keen interest in the area.
He was interested in service to his profession and was elected to the Council of the Saskatchewan Association of Optometrists in 1979. He served on council for 10 years and held every office available including President in 1976/77. During this time the council rewrote the entire Saskatchewan Optometry Act.
He was appointed as the Saskatchewan delegate to Canadian Association of Optometrists in 1990 and again went through every office available and in 1995/96 was the President of the Canadian Association of Optometrists. This was an incredibly busy time as he tried to balance the responsibilities of the national association with practice and family responsibilities. He traveled over 100 days the first year and continued to work a nearly full schedule at home. Fortunately, his children were able to travel with him some of the time and they saw much of Canada and made friends across the country during that time. He was a driving force behind the creation of a body called the Eye Health Council of Canada. It is a strategic alliance between optometry and industry and exists to promote eye health awareness to Canadians and can be seen bringing its messages to the public in most medias on a regular basis.
He has been on many advisory boards and has been involved in clinical research with a number of new silicone hydrogel contact lenses.
He was awarded the CAO “Presidents Award” and the University of Waterloo’s “Distinguished Alumni Award” in 2007. These were truly an honor for him as they are recognition by his peers of his efforts in his profession and the community.

He was awarded the 2002 Canadian Contact Lens Society Prize for proficiency in theoretical and clinical application of contact lenses.
Dr. Kort practiced optometry in Lethbridge, AB for 3 years before moving to Saskatchewan to practice optometry with his wife Dr. Carmela Giocoli in 2005.

Dr. York was born and raised in Weyburn, SK, graduating from Weyburn Comprehensive High School in 1980. Following high school, he enrolled in the Saskatchewan Technical Institute and received a diploma in business administration in 1982, which led to a 5 year career in the banking industry. In 1987 he returned to university in pursuit of a career in Optometry and received his degree from the University of Waterloo in 1992. Following graduation, Dr. York divided his time between private practice in Brampton, Ontario and a position as clinical supervisor at the University of Waterloo Optometry Clinic. The pull of the prairies proved too much, however, and in 1994 Dr. York returned to his home province and joined Drs. Beaton, Kerr, Patterson and Lypka at Atrium Optometric Group in Saskatoon. Since that time, Dr. York has seen Atrium expand to its current group of seven optometrists with an office staff that has grown from 12 to over 30. Change and improvement have been a constant at Atrium with the addition of a new clinic in West Saskatoon in 1996, the construction of our current clinic in downtown Saskatoon in 1998, the expansion and relocation of our West Clinic to its new full service 4500 square foot home on 22nd Street in January of 2012 and our exciting partnership with FYidoctors in 2009.
In addition to full time practice, Dr. York has been heavily involved with the Saskatchewan Association of Optometrists. He was elected to the association council in 2002 and has held every available office, serving as president from 2009 to 2011.
