Our Team


Florence is an experienced Contact Lens Fitter with over 12 years of clinical contact lens experience working for an ophthalmologist in the Greater Vancouver area. Florence is well-suited to take over ownership of the practice being licensed as an Optician, Contact Lens Fitter, and Refracting Optician with the College of Opticians of British Columbia (COBC), registered through the National Contact Lens Examiners (USA), and as a Certified Ophthalmic Assistant.

She is energetic and extremely motivated to take over CLA’s demanding patient workload. In addition to becoming a partner in the company, Florence is now trained and certified to fit all of the specialty lenses currently being used at CLA. These lenses include Synergeyes, Kerasoft IC, and the Zen lens among others. Ted Littlewood personally trained Florence to deal with all of the patients including his most difficult-to-fit and challenging eyes. She has become an invaluable member of the CLA team and the staff appreciates her eagerness to learn, attention to detail, innovative ideas, respect and empathy for her patients, and being a consummate professional while being a genuinely nice person to work with.


Ted Littlewood, is one of the very few contact lens fitters in the Lower Mainland that can resolve issues with hard to fit corneas. Although he does not personally diagnose eye conditions, clients are referred to him from all over the Lower Mainland for their treatment.

Ted is now devoting more of his time fitting lenses in his private practice in Port Moody. After 17 years Ted has retired from teaching the Dispensing Optician Program at Douglas College. He was one of the first instructors to teach when the program started. His area of expertise was instructing students in the art of fitting contact lenses.
