About Perspective Optometry Vancouver
Our clinic is a full service optometric eye and vision health clinic located in the Fraser View Neigbourhood of East Vancouver. We are on Nanaimo street, across from Bobolink Park, with lots of free parking.
A Fresh Perspective
We called our clinic Perspective Optometry because we offer a fresh perspective on eye care. In addition to providing comprehensive dry eye care, we provide comprehensive eye exams plus children's eye exams and exams that test for eye movement disorders like convergence insufficiency. We also incorporate nutrition and lifestyle practices that can impact your dry eye disease and other eye and vision conditions. We use advanced diagnostic equipment to see the health of your retina and analyze the deep layers of the tissue that forms your eye and optic never to catch disease early, when when they are easiest to treat.
More than dry eye
Comprehensive eye exams
Our doctors perform comprehensive eye health exams and pediatric/ developmental eye exams that test for all eye diseases such as glaucoma, diabetes, cataracts, infections, allergies and ocular-motor disorders.
We also diagnose systemic diseases like diabetes, hypertension and cancer, which show up in the eyes first. An important part of our practice is diagnosing and treating eye movement disorders, binocular vision problems and visual perceptual skills deficits. We provide prescriptions for eye glasses, contacts, special lenses, pharmaceuticals for eye allergies and eye infections.
We are available for eye emergencies for patients who suffered trauma or injury to their eye, who have a foreign body embedded in the eye or who have had any sudden change in their vision. We can often treat these issues in the clinic, saving you a long wait at the hospital emergency room. If urgent surgery is required, we will arrange for a surgeon to see you as soon as possible.
We have one of the largest vision therapy practices in Vancouver where we treat children and adults who have eye and vision problems that cannot be treated with lenses. We have successfully treated many patients with binocular disorders such as convergence insufficiency, accommodative dysfunction, amblyopia, strabismus, and concussions and other brain injuries where vision is impacted. We have also provided vision therapy for patients who have deficits in visual information processing or visual perceptual skills. Many of our patients have been able to avoid the risks and complications of strabismus surgery.
