Dr. Victor Nalywajko
Dr. Victor Nalywajko (“Dr. Victor”) was born and raised in Burlington. He completed his undergraduate studies at McGill University in Montreal and at the University of Waterloo, earning a Bachelor of Science degree. He obtained his Doctor of Optometry degree (Dean’s Honour List) in 2000 from the University of Waterloo. While enrolled at Waterloo’s School of Optometry, Dr. Victor completed a four month rotation in Ocular Health and Therapeutics at the Eye Foundation of Utah in Salt Lake City and a two month rotation at a Binocular Vision Clinic in Calgary, Alberta. After graduating, Dr. Victor became an associate at a busy, multi-doctor optometric clinic in Barrie, Ontario and in 2004, he began working alongside Dr. Donna Bojeczko in downtown Burlington. Between 2006 and 2007, he also took on a part-time position at the University of Waterloo, supervising and teaching optometry students in the primary eye care clinic. He is now the full-time Doctor of Optometry and the owner of the practice. He lives in Oakville with his wife and 2 children.
Dr. Donna Bojeczko
Dr. Donna Bojeczko is also a native of Burlington, graduating from Burlington Central High School in 1978. She attended the University of Waterloo, School of Optometry and graduated with a Doctor of Optometry degree in 1983. Following graduation, Dr. Bojeczko worked in a contact lens specialty clinic for two years in Kitchener, Ontario. She established the practice in downtown Burlington in January 1986. As the office became busier, Dr. Victor joined the practice on a part-time basis in 2004. In the spring of 2011, Dr. Victor took on full time hours at the practice and Dr. Bojeczko reduced her hours to three days a week. Dr. Bojeczko visits local nursing homes in the Burlington area one additional day a week and is involved with low vision services locally.
