Our team of licensed and experienced opticians and optometrists are here to make sure your eyes are healthy and you are happy. Getting regular professional eye care is part of maintaining healthy vision as you age.
Comprehensive eye health examinations currently not available. Contact us to book a sight test instead! Feel free to also bring a prescription from your optometrist.
We offer free sight testing with the purchase of a complete pair of eyeglasses or an annual supply of contact lenses for those between the ages of 19 to 64. For sight tests that do not meet the above conditions, there will be a sight test fee - please call us for fee details.
Keep in mind that a sight test does not examine ocular health or any underlying illnesses that may be changing your vision. It is meant for those with normal healthy eyes looking to update their prescription. For an eye exam, we will gladly arrange an appointment with an optometrist.
If you have not had an eye exam in a while, we recommended that you follow this guideline to keep your eye health in check:
Children under 19 years old
Every 6 to 12 months,
as early as 6-month old
(A full exam annually is covered by MSP)
Adults between 19~64 years old
Every 12 to 24 months
(Routine eye examinations are not covered by MSP, unless there is medical necessity, which is eligible for partial coverage)
Seniors over 65 years old
Every 12 months
(A full eye exam annually is partially covered by MSP)
BC's Healthy Kids Program: The Ministry of Health provide eyeglasses benefits for eligible individuals with a valid care card and a doctor's prescription. Call us and we can help you find out if your kids are eligible.
Contact Lens Fitting
Nothing gets closer to your eyes than your contact lenses. In fact, contact lenses are not "one-size-fits-all". Each contact lens fit requires careful evaluation of the wearer's prescription, corneal curvature, age, lifestyle, hobbies, and any underlying ocular conditions such as dry eye or allergies. This is why the XO team takes contact lens fitting very seriously.
Our licensed contact lens fitters will make sure you are fitted with the best contact lenses for your eyes. Whether you are a first-time or long-term contact lens wearer - we can help!
We offer free soft contact lens fittings with the purchase of an annual supply of contact lenses. For soft contact lens fittings that do not meet the above conditions, there will be a contact lens fitting fee - please call us for fee details.
Keep in mind that contact lens manufacturers are always improving and updating their lenses, so if you have been wearing the same brand of contacts for the last few years, we will be glad to give you a free pair of newer, healthier contact lenses to try.
