The doctors and staff at Summerland Optometry are committed to making your eyeglasses a priority. The process starts with a careful eye examination to determine the best optical prescription, followed by lens recommendations from your optometrist. We strive to give you the straight facts, including both the benefits and drawbacks, with regards to all the different lenses and additional lens features. Next, our trained staff will guide you through the frame selection process to ensure that you are considering choices that are appropriate for both your prescription and facial features. Our large frame collection (over 1200 frames) provides excellent selection. Finally, your glasses are adjusted to fit comfortably to your face. Our goal is to make this process as pleasant as possible and to respect all your unique needs and desires.

Summerland Optometry has access to all frames and lenses available in Canada, but with the bewildering array of frame lines available we cannot carry everything. We strive to provide you with quality products that are high in value and make our frame decisions accordingly.  Summerland Optometry has strong buying power as a member of Eye Recommend, a leading optometric management and buying group. Most of our patients are pleasantly surprised by our prices for quality eyewear.

Summerland Optometry is equipped with an in-office lens-finishing lab. This allows for rapid service and the ability to mount new lenses into a patient’s own frame without having to send it away. We are generally able to repair your glasses should they become damaged. 

New clients and all our current patients are welcome to visit us with their current prescription – no appointment necessary.
