Dr. Jeff Guthrie


Dr. Jerry Rawal and staff are pleased and proud to announce that Dr. Jeff Guthrie has joined our team and has moved to Bancroft!

Dr. Guthrie hails from Sarnia, Ontario. He completed his Undergraduate degree (BSc. Science) at the University of Waterloo. His Doctor of Optometry Degree was from Illinois with extensive ocular disease training at University of Chicago Hospitals, Veterans Hospitals of Detroit Michigan and West Palm Beach Florida as well as a surgical practice Mid-Florida Eye Center.


Dr. Guthrie has worked directly with various surgical sub-specialists in the areas of cornea, glaucoma, retina and pediatrics.

He practiced in Victoria, B.C. for one year prior to returning to Ontario. In Ontario he was engaged in various clinical settings for 3 years, including surgical centres, nursing homes and private practice in the Greater Toronto area.  He currently serves on the Board of Directors for the Ontario Association of Optometrists.

“I enjoyed gaining the perspective of  urban practice but decided that the  rural setting was far more enjoyable,  both professionally and personally.  It’s really great to be in Bancroft!”

Dr. Guthrie enjoys skiing (x-country, downhill), running, hiking, boating, camping, travel, and reading.

We are indeed fortunate to have Dr. Guthrie’s undivided attention ashe has made his home in Bancroft and is now an integral member of the team at Bancroft Eye Care.

Dr. Guthrie builds on Dr. Rawal’s 10-year service and commitment to the community.

“We will continue to provide high quality medical eye care for routine and emergent problems, in an even more timely manner as there are now both Dr. Rawal and Dr. Guthrie to share the clinical case load.”
