Your Vancouver Eye Doctor

Eye care professionals specialize in understanding how the human eye really works, as well as diseases and conditions that affect your vision—many of which do not always have obvious symptoms. At Elite Eye Care our doctor knows how age and risk factors affect vision over time for young and old, and she understands the benefits and features of corrective lenses, both as eyeglass lenses and contact lenses.
Our Optometrist at Elite Eye Care takes the time to explain the results of your eye exam, describes your options and listens to your eye care needs. Because maintaining good eye health is an ongoing partnership, we encourage you to ask questions and share your health information, which could be vital to monitoring, diagnosing and treating potential vision problems.
