Our Services

Comprehensive eye and vision exams

We take the time to explain the value of maintaining good vision. By detecting eye and vision conditions early on, our eye doctors are able to provide treatment options and in many cases restore or prevent vision loss before it’s too late.

All of the reviews are true! If I could give an extra star I would, because they do the extra out of passion for their work. I've been dealing with glasses since I was 4 years old, and this place is the best I have and ever will go to. I swear I'm human, this is not a robot or affiliate post 😀 Thanks to all the girls and guy who helped me yesterday. I really appreciate your positivity through this pandemic. You all made my day.

Very positive experience. No waiting. Dr. Lau is very good at explaining all the tests she is doing and why and she offered great advice to keep my eyes in good health.

Love Dr. North. She is friendly, gives honest advice and is right to the point. Also, the staff at the boutique are knowledgeable and provide friendly one-on-one service. I recommend this clinic.

First-rate eye care (able accurately to diagnose my difficult-to-diagnose eyes) and personnel. Highly recommended!

Everyone I dealt with here was very friendly and professional. My first eye exam in approximately a decade, and everyone made sure to explain everything in detail and made sure I knew everything I had to before making any sale. I felt very taken care of and listened to. When it comes to medical-related institutions, this likely is the best one I've ever walked into. From start to finish, everything was sanitized, explained, and put at ease for me. One of the easiest 5-star experiences ever.

I highly recommend Merivale Vision Care. Friendly, knowledgeable, competent staff. Completely COVID safe with all the safety protocols that they follow. I have been a patient of the clinic for many years and wouldn't go anywhere else for optometric services. This is Ottawa's finest vision care centre.

My wife and I had our annual check-ups with Dr McDiarmid yesterday and received the usual excellent treatment and service from her and the staff.

very efficient friendly staff. Clear instruction with COVID. I saw several staff members constantly sanitizing after people. A bit pricey which I don't mind paying for as I was in and out in a short period of time. Also got to see some cool pics of my eyes
