Dr. Matthew Lepage, Optometrist

Dr. Matthew Lepage was born and raised in Brandon, Manitoba. He obtained his Bachelor of Science degree from Brandon University, before attending Indiana University for his Doctorate degree in Optometry. Dr. Lepage started his career in Brandon, MB, but has also worked in Portage la Prairie, and also now in Winnipeg, where he and his wife call home. Dr. Lepage is proficient in all aspects of full-scope optometry, but particularly enjoys ocular disease co-management and pediatric eye exams.

When not practicing optometry, you can find Dr. Lepage on the golf course, on the lake, in a hunting blind, or hanging out with his wife and their yellow Labrador retriever. He looks forward to meeting you for your next eye exam.
