Update to services: March 30th, 2020

 

We are here to serve our employees, patients and community during these challenging times.

We are keeping our employees on, thanks to the federal government’s introduction of the Wage Subsidy program.

We are able to fulfill most contact lens orders through our online web store, with direct shipping to the patient at home.

We have optical professionals on-site from 10:00 – 2:00 weekdays to see people one at a time, by appointment, to take care of minor repairs, replace lost or broken glasses, or look after any other glasses issues that need more immediate attention.

We also have a doctor on-site five days a week from 10:00 – 2:00 to consult by phone and, if necessary, see eye emergency patients.

We are practicing social distancing and following all recommendations coming daily from Dr. Bonnie Henry, Health Minister Adrian Dix, and the BC College of Optometry.  We are also following recommendations from the Canadian Association of Optometrists as well as the American Optometric Association.

We would also like to thank our community partners, including The Greater Victoria Chamber of Commerce and Think Local First in particular, for the ongoing support and championing of local business.

Sincerely,

Mary Lou Newbold
Chief EyeCare Officer (CEO)
