As one of the most popular eye care and eyeglass centers in the area, we love our patients and customers and they seem to love us right back! Let’s see what they have to say about the #1 optometrist in New Westminster.


This is the best eye care place in New West. They are so thorough and extremely attentive. You never feel rushed when you ask all the questions and they are great about discussing all available options for you. I could not be happier…I will never go anywhere else for exams, glasses, contacts etc. Always feel so well taken care of by Dr. Bachra and her entire team.

My husband and I have been coming to Lifetime Eyecare for years. This is by far the best eyecare experience we have ever had. Dr. Bachra is very detailed with each examination. She is genuine, caring and attentive. The entire staff is pleasant, helpful and respectful of our time. We also need the care of an Ophthalmologist and Dr. Diep is exceptional. I now live in Vancouver but I will always come back to Lifetime Eyecare for all my eye care. You really are the best! Thank you!

Love Dr. Bachra – I had my eye exam here for the first time. She took her time and explained what was happening with my eyes, and then at the end of the appointment, she had my prescription provided to me without my asking – no hassle. They were not pushy whatsoever and I really appreciate that. It makes me want to buy my contacts and glasses from them. Thumbs up. Will be back.
