Happy Holidays! We have some exciting announcements as we finish off 2019. For starters, we’re happy to now be offering a contact lens recycling program. It’s as easy as bringing in your contacts, blister packs, and foils into Oak Bay Optometry and dropping them in the specific recycling bin. As well, our Dry Eye Program is underway. Check out the information below or on our website to learn more. You could win tickets to see your favorite holiday movie by entering our Instagram contest. And finally, we will be taking a few days off over the holidays to be with friends and family. We can’t wait to see you again in 2020!



Did you know that that over 290 million contacts end up in Canadian landfills or waterways every year?

At Oak Bay Optometry, we are continuously working towards decreasing waste. We are excited to announce that, in collaboration with Bausch & Lomb and Terracycle, we are now offering a contact lens recycling program. It’s as easy as bringing in your contacts, blister packs, and foils (no liquids) and dropping them into our contact lens recycling bin.

We are continually getting new selection of frames in the eyewear boutique. Not only have we refreshed some of our favourite brands, including State, Lafont, and Barton Perreira, we’re also introducing a new line. Garret Leight California Optical is the newest addition to the OBO family.

GLCO was founded in Venice Beach, is designed in the Art District of Downtown Los Angeles, and continues to be inspired by all things California. They offer high quality frames and contemporary style. Stop by the showroom to try these timeless frames.



Our dry eye program is underway. The science of Dry Eye Disease has evolved greatly in recent years and now clinicians are better able to diagnose and treat this condition.

Common symptoms include redness, excessive tearing, fluctuating vision, grittiness, and light sensitivity. If you are experiencing any of these symptoms you may be a candidate for dry eye treatment. Contact us to learn more and book an appointment with a doctor.
