Dr. Ryan Bowser

I graduated from the University of Waterloo with Honours, earning my Bachelor in Health Science. From there I traveled to Portland to study at Pacific University, obtaining my Doctorate of Optometry with special interests in vision therapy and therapeutic treatment of ocular disease.


Having grown up in Barrie, I knew I wanted to bring my services back to my community. In 2009 I began practicing Optometry at Barrie Vision Centre, the same office I had trusted my own eyecare to throughout my own life.


I believe in helping patients, having fun doing it and pursuing life passions along the way. Outside of the office you'll fine me working up a sweat riding my mountain bike, trail running or finding new places to explore with my wife Susie and two amazing children.

Dr. Lindsay Gallowitz

I am very exited to be providing eye care in Barrie, my new home since moving from my childhood town of Richmond Hill. Since high school, Optometry has always appealed to me as a great way to meet so many friendly people while also allowing me to have direct patient care for one of our most important senses, our vision. 


I received my Bachelor of Science degree at the University of Guelph, before completing my Doctor of Optometry with honours at the University of Waterloo. I have great interest in ocular disease management and bringing awareness to eyes being more than just 20/20 vision. I also have completed clinical rotations in pediatrics and contact lenses. 


In my spare time, I love reading a good book or hitting the ski slopes in the winter, and I am always open to any suggestions for exploring Barrie with my husband! I'm looking forward to keeping your eyes healthy and seeing their best!
