Dr. Mowbray completed a double major in his undergraduate studies: a Bachelor of Science at the University of Waterloo and a Bachelor of Business Administration at Wilfrid Laurier University. He then went on to get his Doctorate of Optometry at the University of Waterloo.
He received training in Ocular Pathology and Therapeutics at Houston Eye Associates in Texas - a large Ophthalmology clinic where he observed surgical procedures including cataract removal, retinal laser treatments, refractive corneal surgeries (LASIK and PRK), as well as strabismus correction.
After graduating in 1999 he moved to Vancouver and joined Dr. Robin Simpson here at Mount Pleasant Optometry Centre.
Dr. Mowbray did his Accelerated Orthokeratology Certification in Calgary. He has performed this vision restoring technique on patients ranging from 8 to 58 years of age. He also does specialty contact lens fits for patients with corneal conditions such as keratoconus and severe astigmatism. He has also been interviewed on CBC Radio, City TV, Shaw TV and he has appeared at the Vancouver Health and Wellness Show to provide information about this exciting vision therapy.

Overseas he has picked up some language skills and has taken conversational classes in both Mandarin and Spanish.
