We are qualified to do comprehensive eye examinations. Most of our work involves deriving an appropriate spectacle prescription. We also check for cataracts, macular degeneration, glaucoma, and other eye diseases. Our method is based on analysing a patient's case history, their concerns and observations, and our own measurements and observations. We conclude the eye exam with a diagnosis and plan.
We have the largest frame selection in the Comox Valley. Our eyeglass frame selection is constantly being refreshed, with new models and changes occurring regularly. Some of our more well-known lines are Silhouette, Fysh, Kliik, Flexon, Dolce and Gabbana, Guess, Oakley, Ray-Ban, Nautica, Adidas, and Calvin Klein. We also carry some lesser-known brands such as Chloe, Ziggy, Evatik, and Woow.
Check weekly for new additions to our sale frames - save 50% off and more before they are gone!
We may be able to bill directly to your insurance company for your eye examination and eyewear. Our most common insurers are Pacific Blue Cross, Sun Life, Great West Life, Green Shield, and Manulife.
Additionally, Pacific Blue Cross administers partial coverage for examinations and spectacles for those on government disability and social assistance on approval. We welcome members of The Canadian Forces, RCMP, and Veterans. We can submit claims through Medavie Blue Cross (a requisition for current CF members is required from CFB Comox Health Services).
We also submit claims to the First Nations Health authority on approval.
We are qualified experts in contact lenses, and we keep plenty of contact lenses in stock. We fit many types of soft disposable lenses (for farsightedness, astigmatism, nearsightedness, and presbyopia) and rigid gas permeable lenses. We also use specialty contact lenses for problems like keratoconus. AND we have lenses to change the colour of your eye!
