Optometrists in British Columbia can prescribe therapeutic drugs.  We can now treat dry eyes, red eyes, ocular allergies and eye infections.  

If you are in one of the above situations it is best to come in as soon as you think there is a problem – there is no reason to wait - this type of exam is covered under your care card. ** Please bring your care card with you. 

If you have an irritated or painful eye and are concerned about this – call us and we will see as soon as possible. 

***PLEASE note some red eyes are caused by infections – these can be contagious – if you do come in for a visit regarding an inflamed red eye use the alcohol hand sanitizer at the front desk  –  and please have a seat.  Refrain from touching anything.
