About Us at West 4th Optometry Clinic

This is a friendly and caring office and we work hard for our patients and therefore we accept patients that are like minded.

At West 4th Optometry Clinic we do complete eye examinations for the entire family. We check for eye disease, such as Glaucoma, Macular degeneration, Cataracts, Diabetic Retinopathy, Conjunctivitis and other eye problems. We also do Pre-operation and Post-operation exams for laser refractive surgery.

Children need to be checked for Amblyopia or “lazy eye” at the age of 3. If Amblyopia is caught early, it could be corrected by patching and corrective eye wear. Patching is most successful when done before the age of 6, since the brain eye connection is still developing.

The cost of an eye exam for patients between the age of 19 and 64 is $95, and it includes refraction for glasses and contact lenses, glaucoma testing, dilated fundus exam and fundus photo.

Patients under the age of 19 and those who are 65 and over who are covered through BC Medical are not charged any additional amount.

We are also setup to accept extended health, third party billing for most insurance providers and students from UBC, SFU,  Langara,  BCIT,  Capilano U., Emily Carr,  VCC, and Douglas College.
