About Us

History

The busy downtown practice of Framed by Dr. Lukenchuk and Dr. Sharma carries a proud heritage of small town rural Saskatchewan tradition.

Dr. John Lukey purchased the office from the Kindrachuk estate in 1970. He practiced solo for several years and was later joined by Dr. Gary Hayes and Dr. Al Edwards. Dr. John Lukey retired in 1981 and Dr. Bruce Robinson then became a partner in the practice.

In 1985, Dr. Darcy Lukenchuk and Dr. Bruce Robinson established the present practice.

Dr. Sharma joined the practice as an associate in 2013. In 2020 when Dr. Robinson decided to begin his retirement journey Dr. Sharma became a partner in the practice.

Dr. Darcy Lukenchuk

Optometrist

My early family roots are solidly planted in the agricultural and Ukrainian communities of Vegreville and Myrnam, Alberta. My post- secondary education included the Universities of Alberta, British Columbia and Calgary where my focus of study was physiology, cell biology, embryology and immunology. In 1984, I graduated from the University Of Waterloo School Of Optometry and later earned certification in ocular pathology and therapeutics from North Eastern State University. As for a private life, I am blessed with my family. The heart of our happy home is my wife Laurie. Together, our extended family included sons, daughters, in-laws and grandchildren. No matter what the nature of our family gatherings, they always precipitate a lively event.
