Alan Labrum was born in Vancouver, BC, however he spent much of his early childhood living abroad in Thailand and Saudi Arabia because his father was an ESL teacher.

He obtained his undergraduate degree at Simon Fraser University in Burnaby, BC. While in university and upon graduation he travelled to Japan and South Korea to teach English before deciding to pursue optometry.

Dr. Labrum did his optometry training at the Illinois College of Optometry in Chicago, IL. He later returned to Chicago, after spending a year practicing primary care optometry in Terrace, BC, to do his residency training in low vision rehabilitation and ocular disease at the Illinois College of Optometry and the Chicago Lighthouse. He stayed on at the Chicago Lighthouse before joining the Casey Eye Institute.
