Dr. Tom Wilk
Dr. Tom Wilk practices optometry at his Cochrane and Northwest Calgary locations. He developed the “Patient First” approach now adopted by all Doctors and staff at Mountain View Optometry. He obtained his Doctor of Optometry (OD) from the Michigan College of Optometry in 1994, and his B.Sc. from the University of Waterloo. A native of Toronto, Ontario, he came to Alberta in 1998, attracted by the opportunity to start an optometry practice in the only province that allowed ODs to practice within the full scope of their training.
Dr. Wilk’s internships gave him experience in many areas of optometry, including ocular disease training in Jackson, Michigan, primary eye care in Grand Forks Air Force Base (N. Dakota), and Special Needs Vision Clinic in Saginaw, Michigan.
Tom Wilk, OD was a recipient of the Corning Medical Optics award for Excellence in Low Vision. He and his wife Michele started two optometry locations in North Calgary, followed by the opening of Mountain View Optometry in Cochrane in September of 2000. They opened Mountain View’s second location in Northwest Calgary in March 2008. Dr. Wilk enjoys all aspects of practice with a special interest in Ocular disease and patient education. Dr. Wilk has a keen interest in business and practice management, and his articles and commentaries have been published in print and online media such as Optometric Management and Vision Monday. He served on the Alberta College of Optometrists Practice Review Board for several years, helping to ensure standards of the profession are upheld among Alberta practitioners.
A practice philosophy based on exceeding customer expectations as well as refusing to accept anything but the best quality in all aspects has resulted in tremendous practice growth over a few short years. Dr. Wilk is actively involved in his community and has been a member of the local Rotary Club since 2000. He currently serves as President of the Rotary Club of Cochrane and is working on several local and international charitable projects including a Global Grant to improve access to eye care for children in El Salvador. He enjoys almost all outdoor activities Alberta has to offer including hiking, mountain biking, skiing, and running.
