Our History

Scott’s father Roy Coburn was Guelph’s first optician when he came to Guelph in 1940. For over 40 years Scott has been helping people look great and see better. He first opened Scott Coburn Optical in the fall of 1994. In the spring of 2000 we moved to our present location at 123 Wyndham Street North. It’s a larger space as to offer our clients the addition of eye examinations and optometric services.
