Dr. Hinton was raised in Grande Prairie and is proud to call it home. He began his post-secondary education at the University of Alberta where he obtained a BSc in Honours Physiology. Stephan was then accepted into the Optometry program at the University of Waterloo. As a student he worked as a research assistant and was involved in various clinical studies. While in school he joined a team of students on an eye care mission to Mexico. This mission fostered a desire to provide eye care to those less fortunate and he later joined another team on a mission to Jamaica. After graduating with his Doctor of Optometry in 2005, Stephan chose to move back to Grande Prairie to begin to practice.
Currently, Stephan actively shares in a leadership role at FYidoctors. He enjoys creating a relaxed and enjoyable experience for his patients of all ages while providing comprehensive eye examinations. Giving back to his home town he assisted in coaching his former football team, the St. Joe’s Celtics in 2009-2010 and would like to be involved in aiding team sports in the future. Stephan enjoys camping, skiing and golfing but his greatest pleasure comes from sharing time with his wife and two sons. Stephan is proud to be a member of the team at FYidoctors - Victoria - Westshore and looks forward to providing eye care to you and your family.
