What Sets Island Eyecare Apart

We understand that it can be difficult and stressful to find an optometric practice to fulfill all your eye care needs. However, our compassionate staff are dedicated to helping you get the care, answers, and treatment you need to safeguard your health and vision.

At Island Eyecare, we invest in a wide variety of high-end technologies to help us diagnose and treat many different ocular conditions. When you live in a smaller town, it can be frustrating to travel to the next city for proper diagnostic tests. So, we have invested in the technology to offer you high-quality eye care right here in Sydney.

All of our optometrists were born and raised in the Sydney area of Cape Breton Island. So, when we say we genuinely care about our community, we mean it! You can trust that you will receive the respect and attention you deserve when you visit Island Eyecare.

Island Eyecare was the proud recipient of the 2019 Vital Award for Employer of the Year!

How We Give Back

At Island Eyecare, charitable giving is incredibly important to us. We value our community and want to do whatever we can to give back.

Every quarter, we choose a charity to raise money for. We also regularly donate to and work with the Lion’s Club, CNIB, Cape Breton Hospital Foundation, Make A Wish Foundation, Sjogren’s Society of Canada, Scleroderma Society of Nova Scotia and Under One Umbrella.
