A team of eye care professionals

Meet our Team

History of Primary Eye Care Centre:

Primary Eye Care Centre was founded by Dr. Myles McMorris and Dr. Jacqueline John in 1982. Dr. McMorris and Dr. John were both raised in the province of Saskatchewan and graduated from the University of Waterloo, Ontario in 1981 with Doctor of Optometry degrees. Dr. Shannon Gatrell joined the practice in 2008 as an associate and became a partner in the business in 2010. Dr. Shawn Lins then joined the practice in 2014 as an associate and became a partner in 2018. Dr. McMorris officially retired from the practice in June 2018. We wish him the best in his retirement. Dr. Marcia Mitschke joined the practice as an associate in August 2018.

We have always felt that in addition to serving our patients to the best of our abilities, it is important to contribute to our professional Association, our Community and our Province. We are proud members of the Saskatchewan Association of Optometrists (SAO), Canadian Association of Optometrists (CAO) and the Eye Health Council of Canada. We are very supportive of the SAO Optometric Assistants Program.

We also strive to be involved in the community through volunteering, sponsorship, and participation in various community events and fundraisers, such as Relay for Life, Special Olympics, YMCA Healthy Kids Day, Youth Curling, and Youth Soccer to name a few!

We are very fortunate and proud to lead a dedicated, friendly and knowledgeable staff! We look forward to fulfilling all of your eye care needs!
