WHO WE ARE

Although we are now in our new location, this optometry clinic has been serving the people of the Annapolis Valley for over 65 years. The practice began in the care of Dr. James Stoddard back in the 1940s. Dr. Michael Duffey joined the practice in Middleton in 1978 and Dr. Stoddard retired a few years later. Both Dr. Stoddard and Dr. Duffey served as Base optometrists at CFB Greenwood for many years. In 2006, Dr. Brett Kinney joined Dr. Duffey in Middleton and recently relocated the clinic to Kingston and became Valley Family Optometry in November 2014. Eyes are important indicators of overall health, and comprehensive eye care goes far beyond a prescription for glasses or contact lenses. It is important to have regular eye exams whether or not you wear eyeglasses or contacts, and even if your vision is sharp. Our Optometrists use up-to-date technology to provide you with excellent care for a lifetime of healthy eyes. We strive to provide complete eyecare for all our patients. There are several different causes and types of Dry Eye Syndrome. All of these causes result in either a decrease in tear production and/or an increase in tear evaporation. A Dry Eye Assessment is a separate evaluation from an Eye Health Examination. During a Dry Eye Assessment the Doctor will review with you in detail what your specific symptoms and concerns are and administer a variety of different diagnostic tests to determine what form of dry eye you may have and what specific treatment plan is best suited to you. We are excited to now offer BlephEx®treatments to many of our dry eye patients that also suffer from blepharitis. BlephEx® is a new, in-office procedure that allows your doctor to take an active role in treating blepharitis. BlephEx® removes scurf, biofilm and bacterial exotoxins, the main causes of inflammatory lid disease, thereby improving the health of the eyelid.
