Dr. Matthew Lepage was born and raised in Brandon, MB. He completed his Bachelor of Science degree from Brandon University in 2009. He then attended Indiana University where he obtained his Doctorate of Optometry degree in 2013. During Optometry school, Dr. Lepage was the Vice-President of the Optometric Student Association, and was inducted into the Gold Key Optometric Honour Society.
Throughout optometry school, Dr. Lepage trained at a VA Health center in West Virginia, at an inner-city eye clinic in Indianapolis, at a full-scope practice in Chicago, and on a volunteer mission trip to Guanajuato, Mexico. This provided valuable experience in many different practice settings, as well as experience working with people from all walks of life. Dr. Lepage practices full-scope optometry, but particularly enjoys the potential challenge (and joy!) of pediatric eye exams, as well as ocular disease co-management.
Since graduation, Dr. Lepage has practiced in rural Manitoba, but has recently moved to Winnipeg with his wife (who is also an optometrist) and their yellow lab “Keeler”. When not practicing optometry, Dr. Lepage tries to spend as much time outdoors as he can – whether that is on the golf course, fishing, hunting, at the lake, or taking Keeler to the park.
