Welcome to Island Eyecare! We started out serving Sydney residents in 1975 at 247 Charlotte St. and moved to our current location at 117 Welton St. in 1990. In 2015, Dr. Shaun MacInnis took over the practice to promote modern eye care in Sydney. He was joined by two new optometrists, Dr. Jessica Prendergast and Dr. Ashley Chiasson, in 2019. The doctors, along with our eyecare team, are here to care for all of your vision needs. We handle everything from adult and children's eye exams and hard-to-fit contact lenses, to eye emergencies, treatment of eye diseases and co-management of eye surgery such as LASIK.
Exceptional Eye Care – Come See the Difference!
What makes our Sydney optometrists stand out? Each of our optometrists were born and raised in the Sydney area of Cape Breton Island. They all feel fortunate
to be able to live and work in Cape Breton, serving our local community.
Our clinic offers the latest cutting-edge technologies which help us diagnose and monitor eye diseases more efficiently such as glaucoma, cataracts, macular degeneration, dry eye disease, and many more. Some of these technologies include OCT, Optomap, and meibography imaging which give us a more detailed view of many parts of the eye.
Our friendly team offers a professional and caring approach. We give personalized attention and focus on every individual’s visual needs, striving to optimize your sight and your eye care experience. Our Sydney eye doctors also understand that your visual needs change over time, which is why we aim to build a trusting, long-lasting relationship with each and every patient.
Regular eye exams are essential in maintaining clear vision and dependable eye health. We offer comprehensive eye examinations to patients throughout all stages of their lives. We provide extended evening and weekend hours to accommodate your busy lifestyle.
