About Us at Nicola Eye Care in Kamloops, BC

Proving eye care you can trust since the 1940’s

60 years is a long time.

We’ve helped children and adults see better, helped find the perfect pair of frames, and made a positive impact on our local community

Our practice was started by Cy Glover in the 1940s, who was later joined by Dr. Bill Owens. In the early 1960’s, Dr. Daryl Abraham joined Dr. Owens, and they practiced together for many years. Patients still recall climbing the long staircase to the “Owens and Abraham” office on Seymour Street.

In 1986, the practice moved to the medical-dental building on Nicola Street and 3rd Avenue’s corner. After 30 years in that location, Nicola Eye Care was bursting at the seams.

Our new office location opened in August 2016. With an additional 1000 square feet, we’ve had the opportunity to incorporate cutting-edge eye care technology into our practice. Patients with mobility challenges have easy access to our facilities through level-entry from the street with ample parking.

We can’t wait to see what the next 60 years bring us!

Eye Care Technology That Sets the Diagnostic Standard

The world is ever-evolving with the adoption of increasingly-capable technology. In the world of eye care, we’ve seen incredible advancements in optical imaging and diagnostic equipment.

We have chosen to adopt these technologies and incorporate them into our office. Combined with decades of experience, we are confident that we provide comprehensive, patient-centric eye care for each of our patients.

Optical Imaging:

We See What You Can’t

Aided by optical coherence tomographydigital retinal imaging, and visual field testing, we see the eye in staggering detail. Cellular structures just a few microns in size are clearly discerned using our equipment.

Thanks to this level of detail, we can diagnose eye diseases and changes to eye health in non-invasive, pain-free ways.
