Dr. Joe Traynor was born and raised in the Owen Sound area. He attended the University of Waterloo where he completed both his Bachelor of Science Degree and his Doctor of Optometry Degree, with Dean's Honours List distinction.
During his years at Waterloo, Dr. Traynor gained experience in many areas of vision care, including primary eye care, contact lenses, binocular vision and low vision. His final year of study was comprised of various clinical rotations, including several months in Salt Lake City, where he focused on the diagnosis and management of ocular disease.
Dr. Traynor returned to his hometown in 2006 to work alongside Dr. Robert Dors. In 2007, Dr. Andrea Traynor also joined the practice and a second office location was opened to serve the Town of the Blue Mountains. Then in 2013, Dr. Nikki Huggins was added to our eyecare team.
Dr. Traynor is currently an active member of the Ontario Association of Optometrists, the College of Optometrists of Ontario, and the Canadian Association of Optometrists. He takes part regularly in the Eye See Eye Learn program for junior kindergarten students. Dr. Traynor is also certified by the College of Optometrists of Ontario to prescribe medications for the treatment of various ocular conditions.
When he is not in the office, Dr. Traynor enjoys golfing, gardening, and chasing around his two busy boys.
