Handmade in Toronto, Canada

We’re excited to now be one of the select optical boutiques to offer Rapp Eyewear!

These bespoke eyeglasses are designed and manufactured entirely in Toronto, Canada. Each limited addition collection is created using the highest quality acetate and brushed titanium.

Rapp offers a look unlike any other. Their exploration of bold color and industrial shape is certainly built for those looking for one-of-a-kind eyewear. Follow us on Instagram (@oakbayoptometry) and Facebook to see and learn more about Rapp and come into Oak Bay Optometry to try these unique frames on for yourself.



We’re now offer a contact lens recycling program through Bausch & Lomb. Collect your discarded contact lenses and blister packs and return them to Oak Bay Optometry to be recycled. All the cardboard packaging can be recycled through your regular municipal recycling program.

11 AM – 3 PM

Stop by Oak Bay Optometry to shop and learn about Maui Jim sunglasses. Our Maui Jim representative, Lindsey, will be in-store to answer any questions and help you find the perfect style and fit.



We’re now carrying the fun and creative kids eyewear line, Very French Gangster. These frames are handcrafted in France with high quality components such as: “repairable German-quality flexible hinges which will withstand the most daring children; the adjustable arms in silicone bisphenol-free and phthalate-free for the “arm chewers”; the Italian Mazzucchelli acetate plates.”

Very French Gangster, while designed for younger gangsters, are also perfect for older gangsters with a more petite face shape.
