Helping You See the Difference
We often invite our patients to “come see the difference” when discussing our friendly-yet-professional clinic in the heart of Cape Breton. We are confident that you’ll be impressed with what we have to offer at Island Eyecare.
You don’t have to travel all the way to Halifax to receive complex care. Our small town optometry practice has all of the big city amenities you’d expect from a high-end office.
From state-of-the-art technology to highly trained staff, we have a myriad of offerings that make caring for your eyes efficient and effective. Our diligent staff work hard to stay up-to-date with the rapid progression of medicine and technology so you can benefit from precise diagnoses and treatments.
At Island Eyecare, you are our main priority. That’s why we offer evening and weekend appointments to give you the care you need when you need it.

Super friendly service. Cleanliness and sterilization routines were impeccable! You will feel 100% safe and comfortable here. They also have very modern and numerous pieces of equipment to assure that every aspect of your eye care is investigated thoroughly!
Outstanding practice! Dr. Shaun MacInnis has totally re-vamped this facility with the most advanced technologies in eye care and vision needs. Extremely professional, knowledgeable and courteous staff. I highly recommend Brittany, a tremendous optician, who is sure to provide you with excellent service for all of your eyewear needs! She is superior in her field! Well Done Island Eyecare!
Professional courteous staff, took the time to explain and answer questions. Very thorough examination and use of the latest technologies to support the doctor.
