Optometrist | Optométriste
Originally from Clair, NB, Dr. Gaétan L. Lang attended Université de Moncton before being accepted in the optometry program at the University of Waterloo, ON. After graduating as a Doctor of Optometry in 1990, he moved to Halifax, Nova Scotia and joined two local practices.
After practising for three years, the entrepreneur bug bit and he purchased Bayers Road Optometry. This is where he nurtured his practice and developed an interest in genuine, personalized patient care and stylish eyewear.
In 2010, the practice relocated to the Hydrostone District in the city’s North End and was re-named Lang Optometry & Eyewear. The new location and facility allowed Dr Lang to better serve his patients and more effectively showcase his avant-garde eyewear. Today, he is widely recognized for these within Halifax, across Nova Scotia, and beyond.
Being involved in the latest professional developments is integral to how he works. In 1998, Dr. Lang completed an ocular therapeutics course offered by the Pennsylvania College of Optometrists.In 2016, he attended a course presented by the University of Waterloo to further his knowledge of glaucoma and the use of oral therapeutic agents.Dr. Lang has also served on various committees of the Nova Scotia Association of Optometrists and has been asked to be a panelist for standards-setting workshops with the Canadian Examiners in Optometry.
Dr. Lang is an avid supporter of the arts, and a musician. He has played violin in the past with the Prince Edward Symphony and Chebucto Symphony Orchestra, and currently with Nova Sinfonia. He is a past board member of the Maritime Conservatory of Performing Arts and the Scotia Festival of Music. He currently serves on the board of String Music Atlantic. His home has been a refuge for many musicians over the years. He also enjoys travelling, attending concerts, spending time in his garden and antiquing.
Dr Lang is fluent in both French and English and is pleased to offer eye exams in either language.
