Dr. Élisabeth Foucault co-founded Family Focus Eyecare in 1998. She obtained her Doctor of Optometry degree from the Université de Montréal in 1995. Soon after her graduation, aided by her fluency in both French and English and her adventurous spirit, she decided to move from her home in Sorel, Québec to Saskatoon.
Dr. Foucault soon got involved with the Saskatchewan Association of Optometrists, especially in the Continuing Education Program and in Children’s Vision Advocacy. She served for many years on CEO (Canadian Examiners in Optometry) and also worked for the low vision clinic within the Saskatoon City Hospital, in association with the CNIB. She is particularly devoted to children’s eye health, vision and education. She also enjoys the challenges of treating dry eyes and low vision and helping her patients maintain their vision.
Her passion for the arts, athletics and culture has inspired many community partnerships. Her dedication through volunteering with such organizations as La Troupe du Jour, Read Saskatoon, Folkfest, Persephone Theatre, Saskatoon Summer Players and community soccer coaching keep her actively involved in the community.
Dr. Foucault is married to Dr. Paul Salisbury, a Saskatoon optometrist. They have three children: Paulina, Antony and Jack.
