Since he was in high school, optometrist Dr. Shaun MacInnis knew he wanted to do something related to medicine. But his stomach for surgeries wasn’t always that great, so he set his vision on either teeth or eyes. “I was between eyes and teeth, but I didn’t want to go in mouths all day so that’s where I got to eyes,” he laughed. After working in Halifax for eight years he eventually came back home, taking over Island EyeCare Ltd. in Sydney three and a half years ago. Starting off with a staff of six people, including himself, Island EyeCare now has three optometrists and 11 staff.
