** Please note that PD (Pupil Distance) measurements are very subjective. We cannot guarantee how any third party uses that information and whether they use it correctly. This is particularly true if you plan to order eyeglasses online, as we have witnessed how a large percentage of lenses that are bought online are produced inaccurately. We do provide a 100% guarantee that any lenses that we create for you will be done properly 100% of the time, or you get to choose (a) replace the lenses or (b) get a 100% refund.

During a Comprehensive Eye Exam, We:

Investigate all vision-related concerns you are reporting.

Conduct screening tests of your eyes checking for eye-related or vascular-related diseases; these include Cataracts, Macular Degeneration, Glaucoma and Diabetes to name a few.

Conduct screening that also can identify the existence of Hyperthyroidism or Multiple Sclerosis.

Check the quality of your vision by investigating any reduced visual acuity.

Take photos of your eye (if necessary – never extra charges if conducted as part of exam).

Provide a referral and schedule a NO FEE eye exam for you with an Retinal Specialist if needed.

Provide a full vision prescription for eyewear (if applicable).

PD measurements are available upon request.

Upon request provide a full vision prescription for contact lenses.

We are voted #1 Best Optometrists and Eyeglass Centre in New Westminster for a reason.
