Island Eyecare - Your Optometrists in Sydney, Nova Scotia

See the Difference

When people ask about our clinic, we like to say, “Come see the difference”. Our doctors use many pieces of technology that can’t be found elsewhere on Cape Breton. In some cases, we are the first clinic east of Montreal to have this technology! All of this equipment helps us find problems earlier so we can provide better outcomes later. When it comes to seeing your best, we offer the latest in lens designs not found elsewhere, including the Zeiss Drive lens. In contact lenses, it is well known daily disposable lenses are the healthiest option which is why they are our first recommendation. We know life can be busy, so we try to make it easy on you. From offering evening and weekend appointments to communicating by text or email, our goal is to provide easy, convenient access.

Using the latest in optometric technology such as advanced digital imaging, such as Daytona Optomap, in our Sydney office, we will inspect your eyes thoroughly with a comprehensive eye and vision assessment. Our optometric experts stay up to date with the rapid progress of medicine and technology, so you benefit from precise diagnoses and optimal treatments. Many common eye diseases, such as macular degeneration, cataracts, and glaucoma, do not present symptoms until a late stage. For early detection and effective medical treatment of eye disease, visit our highly qualified and skilled eye doctors regularly for a comprehensive eye exam.

Ask Our Sydney Doctors a Question...

Q: How do I know if I have Dry Eye?
A: Dry eye can cause quite a few symptoms, anything from the eyes actually feeling dry to the eyes watering often, or having a burning, itchy, or irritated feeling. One of the most common symptoms is the eyes feeling gritty or like something is in your eye. Most people will often experience blurred vision since the tears, which comprise the outermost surface of the eye, are unstable.
