Our Optical Dispensary

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. We carry a very large selection of eyewear – everything from budget friendly packages to luxury frame (over 1200 frames) to provide you with 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.

New clients and all our current patients are welcome to visit us with their current prescription.


Our Glasses, Lenses and Contact lenses

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.


Living in the beautiful Okanagan, makes sun protection especially important for preventative eye health. It’s not just about UV protection; protection from visible light is equally as important. Overexposure to sunlight is linked to many eye diseases including cataracts, macular degeneration, skin cancer and degeneration of the cornea.

Which Sunglasses are Best for Me?
Our skilled doctors and staff at Summerland Optometry have extensive knowledge to help you make the best choice for your unique needs and budget. We will guide you through important decisions including the tint colour, degree of darkness, percentage of UV protection and polarized lens options.

Sunglasses for kids
Sun protection is especially important for kids as they are more susceptible to sun damage. WHO estimates that 50% of your lifetime exposure to UV rays occurs before the age of 18.


Contact Lenses

Contact lenses can provide you with clear and comfortable vision without glasses. They are especially desirable for sports and other active activities where glasses get in the way. In higher prescriptions they definitely provide more natural vision with enhanced peripheral perception.

Summerland Optometry offers a wide selection of contact lenses including disposable soft, bifocal/multifocal, toric for astigmatism, as well as specialty lenses. Whether you wear daily, weekly or monthly disposables, we have the lenses for you.

If you are not sure if contact lenses are right for you, we offer comprehensive eye exams to assess your suitability for contact lenses.

Therapeutic Tints

Therapeutic tints filter the light that can trigger or worsen migraines and headaches, post-concussion syndrome, vestibular disorders, and other light-sensitive conditions.

Who could benefit from a therapeutic tint:
Migraine sufferers, headache sufferers, post-concussion syndrome, sensitivity to lights (while night driving or not) and including fluorescents and computer screens.

We have all the tint samples in-office for you to try. It is beneficial to look through the lenses to see if a tinted lens would be of benefit to you.

Which tints do we carry?
We can order any tint colour; however, the most common tints are FL-41 (rose-coloured), blue, yellow and green. They each work well for different conditions and we can also vary how dark the tint is.
