What to expect at an eye assessment appointment

Your eye care checkup will typically take about half an hour; it may be more or less depending on your specific vision needs. The goal of your appointment is to provide you with an up-to-date prescription and assess the overall health of your eyes.

Before Your Eye Care Appointment

Prior to your eye exam, we will review your general eye health as well as your medical history by asking you to fill out a questionnaire. Knowing your family medical history helps identify potential high-risk areas, because many eye diseases are hereditary.

During Your Appointment

Your eye health is an integral part of your overall health and can significantly affect your quality of life. At Inner Harbour Optometry in Victoria and Saanich, BC, we provide comprehensive eye exams to detect any conditions or diseases early and offer treatment that can preserve your vision. 


Similar to chronic stress, constant exposure to digital work, even for entertainment purposes, takes a toll on our eyes.

Advanced Dry Eye Care

Dry eye is becoming a common eye problem because of how much time we spend in front of computers. There are effective treatments for this condition so that your eyes will feel better and your vision will be less blurry. If you feel that your eyes are dry, strained, and irritated, you may need to see an eye doctor on our optometry team to be screened for this condition and to get treatment for it.
