At Dr.Tony Wang Optometric Corp. we specialize in providing professional eye care and treatment for patients in the Metropolitan Vancouver area. Our services include a full range of comprehensive eye examinations, corrective lenses and therapies. We use the latest in technology to correct vision impairment and to diagnose problems such as cataracts and glaucoma.
Regular eye exams are recommended for all ages, especially those with family histories of ocular diseases, high blood pressure, and diabetes. We use state of the art diagnostic equipment to monitor the health of your eyes and to determine your correct prescription.
Even if you think you have 20/20 vision, there can still be problems that could go undetected during a simple vision test. Unnoticed, they could eventually lead to vision and other health problems.
We take our time to get to know our patients, and we work closely with you throughout the treatment process, making sure that you understand all options available. Our office is located on the professional office level in Metrotown Shopping Center on Kingsway. We are easily accessible by bus or Skytrain and have plenty of parking. Wheelchair accessible.
