Dr. Yves Levesque
Originally from Saint-Basile, in northwest New Brunswick, Dr. Levesque graduated from University of Waterloo in 1994. He then moved to Halifax where he worked for a year and a half. Dr. Levesque purchased the Liverpool office in 1996 and started another one in Digby that same year. He really enjoys practicing in friendly rural Nova-Scotia. He is licensed to prescribe medication to treat ocular infection, dry eyes and ocular allergies in addition to removing foreign bodies.
Dr. Levesque has always been very involved in the Nova Scotia Association of Optometrists and served on council of that organization for four years. Most of his time outside the office is now being spent with his young kids and wife. When he has some spare time, he enjoys playing hockey, downhill skiing, swimming, sailing and playing tennis.

NSCC in June of 2015 with a diploma in Pharmacy Technology. She has
steadily become an asset to the team and part of the family in both the
Liverpool and Annapolis offices. She will be the friendly face that pretests
you before seeing the Optometrist.
