Drs. Bohnsack and Steffler have practiced optometry since graduating in 1987 from the University of Waterloo.
Dr. Paula Steffler started optometric practice in 1987 in Ottawa and in Mississauga in 1988. In addition to her working in Mississauga, she also worked with Dr. Bohnsack in Oakville, where she continued to work part time after starting a family.
Dr. Steffler and her husband, Dr. Harry Bohnsack relocated to New Brunswick, starting their practice in the Executive Edge Building on Smythe Street.
In 2003, the office was relocated and expanded in a renovated building next door to the previous location. The new location allowed the addition of state of the art instruments including Digital Retinal Photography, Optomap Widefield Retinal Imaging, Automated Tonometry and Automated Visual Field Evaluation. The Eyewear Gallery was also expanded and a Lens Edging Lab was added along with a large inventory of high quality ophthalmic lenses for enhanced eyewear service.
Dr. Steffler also operates a satellite office in Oromocto with contact lens and eyeglass dispensing services.
Dr. Steffler keeps busy working at her two office locations and raising three growing children. She enjoys travelling and painting in her spare time.
