Dr. Russell Ebata, BSc, OD

Doctor of Optometry

"I am a second-generation optometrist and graduated from the University of Waterloo in 2009. I returned home to Kamloops and began practicing alongside my father until taking over the clinic with my wife in 2014. Despite being one of the smallest clinics in Kamloops, we are consistently ranked as one of the top-rated eye care centres. Outside of optometry, I have a keen interest in fly fishing, gardening and enjoy spending time with my wife and two young children."

Chartered Professional Accountant

"I was born into a family of entrepreneurs and am first-generation Canadian so naturally felt that this was my path in life. After graduating with an honours degree and a double major in Accounting and Finance I pursued a CPA designation. After seeing the needs of a business beyond the numbers, I joined Ebata Eye Care and took my experience as a CPA to push beyond performance indicators to create impactful change that became holistically encompassing. I am so proud of the team we have at the clinic and it truly is a family here.

My biggest accomplishments to date are my two beautiful children. I am a lover of 90s music, sushi, and the ocean."

"I have worked at Ebata Eye Care for over 8 years. My favourite thing about working at the clinic is seeing the familiar faces of our patients that come year after year as well as my amazing work family. When I am not working I love spending time with my husband and 3 kids. We love camping, fishing, watching movies and playing board games. My daughter and I also enjoy baking cakes together, trying new recipes and designs."

Maren H.

I recently had occasion to work with Ebata Eyecare on a couple of issues I was having. I cannot begin to express how pleased I am with both Dr. Ebata, as well as Amrita and her staff who look after the optical side. They spent a tremendous amount of time helping me explore the possibility of contacts, and then in finding a set of lenses for set of frames that had a specific use. The patience, professionalism, care and positive attitude that they approached my needs with was outstanding. They are also very gracious people, and I look forward to working with them in the future as they have earned my absolute trust. I recommend the Ebata’s in the highest way possible.

If anyone is looking for an optometrist, look no further. By far the best experience I've had with any sort of medical provider. The entire staff from the receptionists to the optometrists were genuinely friendly, caring, thorough and helpful. The facility is incredibly clean, inviting and modern. There was a play area for kids which was great for my daughter to have fun at during my appointment. I would recommend this place to anyone. Could not be happier about the experience I had here.

Shea D.

I have never felt more welcoming and comfortable in an office, this place is surrounded by good people willing to do anything for you. I am from out of town and they made my life easy with many different requests I had (I wasn’t an easy patient). Would 100% recommend (Ebata Eye Care) to anyone.
