At Nicola Eye Care Optometrists, we work with families from across Kamloops (and surrounding towns) to ensure lifelong vision health. A comprehensive eye exam is the backbone of our preventive eye care routine.
We recommend that all adults have their eyes examined every one to two years. This schedule ensures that we always stay on top of your eye health.
We work to provide Kamloops with an enjoyable eye care experience. Powered by high-tech equipment, our eye exams are completely non-invasive and designed with your comfort in mind.
No two eyes are the same. Informed by the results of our exam, our eye doctors will let you know of any concerns they may have or what the appropriate next steps might be. Throughout our relationship, one thing that will remain true is our focus on your health and visual acuity.
Eye care centres around preventative detection and treatment of vision-threatening conditions. Our eye exams definitively screen for signs of all known eye diseases.
Nearly 75% of North American adults wear glasses or contact lenses. In fact, all over the western world, rates of myopia (the most common refractive error) are increasing.
Our in-house optics lab (complete with edger) allows us to manufacture your new glasses on-site. Not only does this save time and money, it also ensures that your glasses meet our requirements for build quality, as well as industry standards.
We carry over 1,200 optical frames in-stock and ready for our patients to try on. No matter your face shape, skin tone, or sense of style, we promise to make the selection process fun and exciting.

Nearly 10% of Canadians that wear corrective lenses choose to wear contacts, and more Canadians join that group every year! The key to a great experience with contact lenses is finding the perfect lens for your need, prescription, and eye shape.

In addition to common soft contact lenses, our optometrists and opticians also fit and dispense rigid gas permeable lenses, scleral contact lenses, and lenses for orthokeratology.
Staying at the forefront of optometric innovation helps us provide thorough and comprehensive care. For example, our Nidek OPD Scan III Autorefractor and Nidek COS5100 Compact Refraction System give us the most accurate refraction measurements possible, enabling us to get your prescription exactly right.
You can find us on the corner of St Paul St and 3rd Ave. We are 3 blocks down 3rd Ave from Royal Inland Hospital, towards downtown. Our office is across the street from the Telus Store and Stuart Wood school yard (where the summer Farmer’s Market is on Saturdays).
