Get to Know Dr Robert Lecker & Our Team of Professionals

Conveniently located in downtown Winnipeg and Niverville, Dr Robert Lecker brings more than 40 years’ experience as an optometrist to the people of southern Manitoba. He takes pride in offering eye care and eye health to all patients, from children to seniors and in-between.


Get to Know Dr. Lecker

Dr. Lecker has practiced optometry in Manitoba since 1976. At that time, Manitoba had no low vision services available so Dr. Lecker advocated for an optometric/interdisciplinary clinic at CNIB. Over the following 10 years, through his advocacy work, as well as numerous meetings with government and ophthalmology professionals, he was instrumental in the establishment of the optometric clinic still located at CNIB in Winnipeg. This clinic currently offers services from nurses, counsellors, social workers, mobility specialists and optometrists.


Dr. Lecker also helps to provide optometric services to people in remote Northern Manitoba communities through part-time practices in Churchill, Fisher River, Paungassi, and Little Grand Rapids. As well, he established an optometric triage service for the people of Lynn Lake, Manitoba nearly 25 years ago.


In conjunction with CNIB Manitoba, the Lieutenant Governor's iCARE Award is presented annually in late spring to recognize a Manitoba eye care professional who demonstrates innovative and/or unique contributions to eye health in Manitoba, who works within their associate body, and who has made significant contributions to the community at large.


Dr Robert Lecker was presented with the 2015 Lieutenant Governor iCare Award in Manitoba by the Honourable Philip Lee and Her Honour Mrs. Anita Lee at a ceremony at Government House in Winnipeg on June 9, 2015.
