Dr. Diana Monea

Dr. Monea is committed to providing diagnostic procedures, using digital imaging equipment in the pre-test eye exam.

The internet has provided a terrific medium for providing patient information as it relates to eye health. Dr. Diana Monea became the first optometrist in Canada to create a website dedicated to the provision of eye health information when she created in the summer of 1999.

This website has subsequently evolved into

Your Eye-Health Matters

Dr. Chelsey Kritzer

Dr. Kritzer was born and raised in Alberta. She graduated from the University of Calgary with a Bachelor of Natural Science concentrating in Chemistry and Biology. She then went on to study Optometry at the New England College of Optometry in Boston, Massachusetts.

Her externships included rotations in pediatrics, contact lenses, and ocular disease. In her last year of Optometry school, she completed several clinical rotations at the Community Health Centres in Boston, and one rotation at a Veterans Affairs Hospital in New York. 

Chelsey is passionate about delivering high-quality care to patients of all ages while focusing on public health and making a positive impact in each of her patients' lives. She is outgoing and approachable, ensuring her patients are educated with a good understanding of their ocular health status. 

Chelsey is honoured to be a part of Eye Health Centres, as Dr. Monea has mentored her through this Optometric journey.

Our Regina Doctors

Motivated by My Patients

Dr. Jerome Loewen

Dr. Jerome Loewen was born and raised in St. Catharines, Ontario, and graduated from Eden Christian High School in 1991. Dr. Loewen subsequently entered the biology program at Brock University from which he graduated with distinction in 1995. Accepted to both law and dentistry programs at the University of Western Ontario, Dr. Loewen instead chose to study optometry at the University of Waterloo. The opportunity to complete an externship in Houston in 1998 provided invaluable experience and perspective on the crucial impact of quality eye care. Dr. Loewen graduated as a doctor of optometry from the University of Waterloo in 1999 at which time he received an award for clinical proficiency. He then entered private practice in Ontario and continued the same for the next six years.


Having been with the Lakewood Eye Health Centre since 2005, Dr. Loewen enjoys practicing optometry in Regina, where he met his wife and where his children were born. Dr. Loewen enjoys his work and particularly enjoys interacting with his patients.


Dr. Loewen has competed provincially in volleyball and track, as well as nationally in fastball. He remains active with running and golf. Faith and family are priorities in his life, as well as providing eye care for all his patients.

I Love Optometry

Dr. Chelsea Poncsak

Dr. Chelsea Poncsak is happy to continue to provide full-scope optometric care to new and existing patients of the Lakewood Eye Health Centres. Since starting practice with the Eye Health Centres in 2013, Dr. Poncsak has enjoyed getting to know patients of all age groups and looks forward to building relationships with them in years to come.


Born and raised in Regina, after finishing high school at Miller High School and a biology degree at the University of Regina, Dr. Poncsak completed her Doctorate in Optometry at the University of Waterloo. She returned to Regina upon graduating and has loved being a part of the Lakewood Eye Health Centre from day one.


When she's not hard at work, Dr. Poncsak, along with her husband Jon, can be found chasing after their two children: Leia and Jack. As a family, they enjoy spending time at the family cabin, being outdoors, and taking in some of Regina's staple attractions – the Farmer's Market and Wascana Lake.


Since having her own children, Dr. Poncsak has become even more of an advocate for the importance of children's eye examinations and early detection/prevention of eye disease and vision issues. She has spoken at different parent groups and preschools to ensure education is available to parents on these issues and is happy to answer any questions or concerns you may have regarding your child's vision or yours. Dr. Poncsak appreciates all types of optometric practice and loves seeing patients of all age groups, but has a soft spot for paediatrics and children, and would love to see your little one starting at the age of 6 months!

Making a Difference with Eye Care

Dr. Brendan Warner

Dr. Brendan Warner grew up in Prince Albert, Saskatchewan, where he completed both elementary and high school within the city. During his younger years, Brendan was an avid competitor in the sport of fencing. It was in this sport that he was able to become the Under 13 Provincial Foil Champion, and later in 2007, he became the first alternate to go to the Canada Winter Games for Team Saskatchewan. Other areas of interest for Brendan include playing the piano and completing up to the bronze medallion level in swimming courses. After graduating from Carlton Comprehensive High School in 2010, Brendan decided to attend the University of Regina after being accepted to both the University of Regina and the University of Saskatchewan.


After three years of working towards a Bachelor of Science in Biology at the U of R, Brendan gained early acceptance to the University of Waterloo Doctor of Optometry program. It was during this time that Brendan was able to realize how confident he was that he had chosen the correct profession for himself. He specifically appreciated working with specialty contact lenses, including scleral lenses for patients with keratoconus, extreme dry eye, and other corneal irregularities. This is a passion he hopes to bring into his daily primary care practice for those patients that could benefit. Brendan completed ocular disease and therapeutics internships in Waterloo, Ontario, as well as Dallas, Texas. To complete his education, Brendan finished primary eye care rotations through clinics in Moose Jaw and Nipawin in Saskatchewan. Upon graduating, Brendan also received the Dean’s Honour List distinction with his Doctor of Optometry degree.


When not working, Brendan particularly enjoys fishing, boating, and camping in the summer as well as snowmobiling and skating in the winter. Now as he becomes established in Regina, Brendan hopes to take up playing the piano and fencing again one day. Brendan welcomes both new and existing patients to Lakewood Eye Health Centre and looks forward to getting to know as many of our patients as possible.
