Dr. Sergiu Picioreanu

2019-sergiu

Dr. Picioreanu was born in Ploiesti, Romania, and raised in Calgary, Alberta where his family continues to reside. He attended McGill University, where he earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Biology and Computer Sciences. Dr. Picioreanu went on to complete his Doctor of Optometry degree from the University of Waterloo (U of W),  with the distinction of being on the Dean’s Honor List throughout his four-year attendance. During his time at U of W, he contributed to optometric research projects with the faculty and presented his work at the American Academy of Optometry conference in Anaheim.

Following the completion of his Doctor of Optometry degree, Dr. Picioreanu elected to enroll in a year-long residency at Northeastern State University (NSU) as a Cornea and Contact Lens resident; his year training at NSU allowed him to acquire a wide breadth of experience with diagnosing and managing ocular surface diseases, especially through the use of specialty contact lenses. During this time, he also worked with the Urgent Care Unit of the local hospital helping to treat and diagnose all manner of emergent eye-related problems; additionally, he developed his skills in fitting contact lenses on patients with advanced keratoconus, post-RK patients, and those with corneal transplants.

Throughout his training, Dr. Picioreanu has rotated through various clinics: a Vision Therapy Clinic in Red Deer, a glaucoma specialty clinic in Salt Lake City, and an established clinic in the Greater Toronto Area learning about private practice. He has also developed a professional interest in myopia control and fitting ortho-keratology lenses for patients of all ages, managing advanced Dry Eye through cutting-edge technologies, and learning to perform minor laser surgical procedures.  Dr. Picioreanu has attended many optometric conferences and will be sitting his exam in the fall of 2019 to qualify as a Fellow of the American Academy of Optometry (FAAO).

In his free time, Dr. Picioreanu loves spending time with friends exploring the city of Vancouver and trying out new restaurants. He is a big fan of board games and enjoys an over-priced cup of coffee while reading in cafes. Recently, he’s decided to see if his drumming abilities might be better than his guitar work (he'll let you be the judge), and one day hopes to sing well enough that he won’t get booed off stage at karaoke nights!

Dr. Picioreanu is excited to be joining the Optomeyes team both in Squamish and West Vancouver, and looks forward to sharing his passion and knowledge with the people of the Sea-To-Sky Corridor.
