Protect Your Sight from the Sun

No matter the season, your eyes need protection from ultraviolet rays that can damage your sight and increase your risk of eye diseases. Sunny days spent by the sea, sand, or snow can reflect glare into your eyes and damage your vision, so be sure to sport your sunglasses whether you’re at the ski hill or the beach.

Cloudy days don’t offer much protection, either. UV rays can easily penetrate clouds, so overcast skies are not a reason to abandon your sun protection.

Even if you’re blessed with perfect vision, you still need sun safety. And kids especially need sun protection as their developing eyes are more vulnerable to UV rays. That’s why we have brands and styles to suit every member of your family.

We offer a wide selection of sunglasses in both prescription and non-prescription options. Come and see us today to pick your favourite pair.

Sun Protection for Little Eyes

Kids spend lots of time outdoors exposed to UV rays. In fact, more than half of lifetime UV exposure occurs before the age of 18, so we recommend wearing sunglasses year-round.

Always keep infants out of direct sunlight and provide the youngest members of your family with some extra sun protection like a hat or an umbrella.

We will help you choose a pair of sunglasses that protects from both UVA and UVB rays and fits your child properly. The right fit will help to provide proper sun protection.

Visit us today to find sunglasses for your child.

Frequently Asked Questions

Yes, we accept all prescriptions for glasses that have not expired. If your prescription is expired or you need to have your prescription assessed, we are more than happy to book you an appointment with one of our doctors for an exam.

We make glasses in-house, and it takes around 3 hours for us to edge the lenses into your frame of choice. If glasses need to be ordered in, they typically take around 7 to 10 business days. Specialty orders may take longer to arrive. Our optical will do our best to give you an accurate time estimate and have your glasses made as soon as we can.

A full eye exam includes the following:

  • A comprehensive ocular and medical history check-up to identify or assess your risk factors for certain eye diseases
  • A vision check and prescription for glasses, if warranted
  • Binocular vision testing to check how your eyes are functioning together
  • A measurement of intraocular pressure (IOP) on all patients
  • An optomap scan of your retina on all patients
  • An OCT (optical coherence tomography) scan for adults
  • A comprehensive eye health check in the office by the doctor
  • If warranted, your eye doctor may recommend a visual field test to better assess peripheral vision in Plaquenil (hydroxychloroquine) use, glaucoma, etc.

Children (18 and under), seniors (65+), or those with certain medical conditions are eligible for medical services plan (MSP) coverage. MSP covers part of the eye exam and visual field tests (think of it like insurance), lowering the total cost of the exam you/your insurance is responsible for. We do not charge for children age 2 and under.

A patient is NOT eligible for MSP coverage if:

  • You are from out of province
  • Not registered with BC medical
  • If you have had an eye exam elsewhere within the past year
Service Full Cost If MSP Billable
Adult Eye Exam (19+) $152 $105
Adult Contact Lens Wearer Eye Exam (19+) $167 $120
Child Eye Exam (2-18) $85 $30
Child Contact Lens Wearer Eye Exam (2-18) $100 $45

Yes, we are more than happy to be a part of your LASIK journey. We are pleased to offer post-op follow-ups.

Yes, we can directly bill most insurance companies. If your insurance company is not eligible for direct billing, we will provide you with a detailed receipt to submit for reimbursement.

Please bring a list of medications, your glasses and contact lenses (or your last prescription), and any forms that need to be completed.

Full eye exams are usually between 30 to 45 minutes.

Our office offers wide-field retinal imaging with the optomap machine on all patients who are physically able to. The optomap scan provides a 200-degree image of the retina (inside lining of the eye).

In certain cases, dilation is still recommended to better assess the retina and check for cataracts and other ocular diseases. If you are dilated, we encourage bringing a driver with you so you feel more safe on the way home.
