Our Doctors

Eye care professionals specialize in understanding how the human eye really works, as well as diseases and conditions that affect your vision – many of which do not have obvious symptoms. Eye doctors know how age and risk factors affect vision over time for young and old, and they understand the benefits and features of corrective lenses including eyeglasses and contacts.

Our optometrists take the time to explain the results of your eye exam, describe your options and listen to your eye care needs. Because maintaining good eye health is an ongoing partnership, we encourage you to ask questions and share your health information, which could be vital to monitoring, diagnosing and treating potential vision problems.

Meet our doctors:


Dr. Neil VanderHorst

Neil VanderHorst graduated from Pacific University in 2006. After four years of living in Forest Grove, Oregon, he and his family were excited not only to return to Canada, but to move to 100 Mile House and enjoy the many advantages of small town life.
The VanderHorst family has found all they hoped to find and more in the beautiful South Cariboo region of British Columbia. A safe place to raise their four daughters, and a community to call their own. Dr. Neil, as his patients often call him, is not only the town’s Optometrist, but also a leader in the local Lion’s Club, and a minister of one of the local church congregations. You would think all that would keep him busy beyond belief, but he and his family still make time to enjoy the many opportunities for fun and exploration that 100 Mile House has to offer.

Dr. Michael Ross

Based out of Kamloops, Dr. Ross is a skilled Ophthalmologist who visits our clinic on occasion to attend to the more intense eye care needs of some of our patients. Dr. VanderHorst provides clinic space for Dr. Ross to help promote vision care in the South Cariboo region. We are very grateful to Dr. Ross for making this possible.
