Niverville is now home to its first full-time optometric office. The new venture, Clarity Vision, is open for business at Unit C2-10 Cedar Drive.

Dr. Brooks Barteaux is the primary optometrist and co-owner of Clarity Vision. Barteaux was born and raised in Birtle, Manitoba and now lives in the south end of Winnipeg with his wife and two little boys.

Barteaux graduated from the optometry program at the University of Waterloo in 2009 and has practiced in southern Manitoba ever since.

Barteaux has partnered with Dr. Andrew Aiken, who founded Clarity Vision in Winkler in 2013. Since that time, Aiken has expanded the business with locations in Portage la Prairie, Selkirk, Winnipeg, Stonewall, and now Niverville.

The Niverville location already has one employee who grew up in the area, but Barteaux says more are on the way.

“We are actively recruiting locally and have been interviewing several outstanding candidates to add to the roster in the near future,” Barteaux says.

He adds that Clarity Vision is a full service optometric office.

“Patients receive comprehensive eye health assessments using computerized diagnostics, surgical referrals and co-management, spectacle dispensing, and contact lens services.”

Barteaux says that he can examine the eyes of children as young as six months old, although he generally advises a first examination by age two, assuming that there are no issues being noticed.

He is also able to examine those with special needs or developmental delays.

“I have a fair bit of experience examining patients of all ability levels,” he says. “We have techniques of objective assessment to help examine those who are pre-verbal.”

Clarity Vision does direct billing with most major third-party insurers, such as Blue Cross, GreenShield, GreatWest Health, Aetna, Cigna, and Sun Life. They also accept government insurers like NIHB and EIA.

These days, it’s quite easy to buy glasses and contact lenses online, but Barteaux says that there are many benefits to bringing your business to Clarity Vision instead.

“Buying local grants the ability to try on frames and get advice on the selection of lenses so that the performance of your glasses is as good as it can be,” he says. “You also have ready access to troubleshooting if your correction isn’t working as anticipated. You can be assured of the suitability and authenticity of the products you buy, especially with regard to contact lenses.”

Barteaux points out as well that supporting local businesses boosts the economy and helps the area to thrive.

“I think [that] is a sentiment that is well-understood here in Niverville,” he says. “We are so pleased that we are finally ready to see patients here!”
