Our Doctors

Dr. David Rach

Born in Winnipeg and raised in rural Manitoba, he received his BSc (Biology) from the University of Winnipeg in 1999 and his Doctor of Optometry from the Southern College of Optometry in Memphis, Tennessee in 2003. As part of his education, he completed clinical internships with an IHS clinic in Bethel, Alaska and in private practice in Fernandina Beach, Florida.

Upon graduation, he worked in a private practice for three years in Devils Lake, North Dakota.  In 2006, Dr. Rach and his family moved to the Yukon.  After working as an associate, he purchased the practice and re-named it Polar Eyes Optometry in February 2007. In September 2010, the clinic expanded and moved to its current location.

Dr. Rach holds hospital privileges at the Whitehorse General Hospital. Dr. Rach has been a proponent of expanding optometry's role in providing medical eye care to all Yukoners.  

In his free time, he enjoys fishing, hunting, and curling.
