What’s New at OBO: July 2019

July is a month full of summer fun! Starting with the Victoria Pride Parade, which we will be participating in. Come out and show your Pride! Lindsey will be back for our Maui Jim trunk show, sunglasses are an essential all year round so make sure you have the best. Speaking of sunglasses, we now have Charlie Sun sunglasses for kids from ages 1-9+. Don’t forget Cherish tickets are still available, get them before they sell out (learn more below). And finally, we are preparing for our Etnia Barcelona trunk show at the end of August. This is the best time to shop the entire collection and enjoy an ice cream cone to celebrate Oak Bay Optometry’s 26th Anniversary!


Sunday, July 7th, 11 AM- 12:30 PM

On Sunday, July 7th, we will be marching alongside hundreds of others to show our Pride and solidarity with the Queer community! We will be starting in downtown Victoria (at the corner of Pandora & Government) and finishing at MacDonald Park for the Victoria Pride Festival. Dress up in your Pride colours and join us in celebrating inclusivity, visibility, and diversity!

Learn more about Victoria Pride Events and the Parade at Victoria Pride Society.

Lindsey, our Maui Jim rep, will be at Oak Bay Optometry with the newest Maui Jim styles and an infinite amount of knowledge! If you have any questions about Maui Jim sunglasses, this is a great time to stop by the clinic. In addition, you have the opportunity to try a vast number of styles and colours.



Did you know children under the age of 19 are covered by BC MSP for eye exams once yearly? Now is a good time to have your children’s eyes checked before the school year starts up again. Call or book online today!



Summer has begun and the sun is out in full force, make sure your children’s eyes are protected from harmful UV rays. We have new Charlie Sun sunglasses in-store to help with exactly that. Available in a range of sizes from 1 – 9+, Charlie sun offers polarized lenses and UV protection, all in a stylish frame with 180 degree flex temples.

Learn more in our post The Importance of UV Protection for Kids.
