Dr. Moison and Dr. Nurani recommend that children have their first vision assessment done by the ages of 2-3 years, then yearly afterwards. At this age we are able to assess the health and development of the eyes.
The main reason for such a young age is to diagnose the particular condition amblyopia or “lazy eye”. Lazy eye can only be effectively treated before a child reaches 5 years of age. After this point, unfortunately, despite corrective lenses, surgeries or laser intervention, a child would then remain with a lazy eye for life.
Another important reason to see children at a young age is to offer options to slow myopia (nearsightedness) progression. These options are best discussed on an individual child’s needs with Dr. Moison or Dr. Nurani.
The cost of eye examinations for children under the ages of 19 years old are covered under MSP.
Our Sun sends out powerful radiation, most of which bounces off our planet’s atmosphere and is redirected into space. Some radiation however will penetrate our atmosphere and reach the Earth’s surface. Some radiation is very helpful to us; the visible spectrum radiation allows vision for humans. Some radiation is harmful, namely ultra-violet or UV.
For our purposes, UV radiation induces changes to the skin around the eye, the front surface of the eye, the lens and finally the rear of the eye or retina.
For these reasons, everyone should wear protective eyewear either with a UV 400 coating on spectacle lenses or UV protective sunglasses.
Are there times when UV is not a concern? Yes, nighttime and rain. These are the only two occasions where UV radiation does not reach us.
You’ll love selecting new glasses in our beautiful, spacious optical department! We have over 1,000 frames on display, in all the latest designs, including over 200 pairs of name brand sunglasses. We carry the hottest brand names and fashion designers, including some that are exclusive for the Fraser Valley and Lower Mainland. We will answer all your questions and make sure you have a perfect fit.
We are seeing rapid advancements in ophthalmic lens technology, which means better vision, comfort, convenience and protection for you. Here is a simple way to understand your eyeglass lenses:
Your lenses will either be single vision (one prescription only) or multifocal (bifocals, trifocals and progressive lenses). Progressive (no-line) offer a gradually changing prescription so vision is clear at all distances.
Eyeglass lenses used to be made of glass and while that is still available, new age plastics have much more to offer. New plastic lens materials today are extremely scratch resistant and they are thinner, safer and lighter weight than glass. Lens materials include CR-39 plastic, high index plastic, polycarbonate and new hybrid materials like Trivex. The best lens material for you is based in part on your prescription.
There are many surface treatments available that can make your glasses the best ever. Anti-reflective lenses are a very popular choice because they make you see better and look better by reducing glare, and AR is now better than ever! Many other options are available such as UV protection, anti-scratch coatings and polished lens edges.
We offer many different tint options in lenses from no tint at all to dark gray or brown sunglass shades. One of the most exciting tint options is Transitions®, which is the lens that darkens and lightens based on available sunlight.

I visited Sullivan Optometry for the first time today and was very pleased! While I sat in the waiting room sipping my complimentary coffee I noticed that everyone who walked through the door was treated like family. The optometrist and receptionist knew who their clients were and engaged in genuine conversation with them. For my appointment I saw Dr. Anisa who was very sweet, knowledgeable and trustworthy. I would definitely recommend this clinic and will be back for my next visit. – Amanda Leydier
Dr. Moison and Dr. Rughani, both very nice and professional. Dr. Rhugani was very patient and gave me and my wife both very thorough eye exams and explained everything to us. Highly recommend anybody who needs an optometrist to go here. Also didn’t pressure us to buy glasses or contacts even though they had a very nice selection to choose from. -Matt L.
You run a very pleasant office. I really felt comfortable and un-rushed, although I think I took up too much of your time. I really appreciated you and your staff taking the time to answer any questions I had. See you soon,
– Ray Dougharty
Dear Dr. Nurani,
Thanks to internet I have gotten an e mail address to contact you. I live in Guatemala, I visited your clinic in Ottawa from 2003 to 2005. I will be in Ottawa again in May and very happy to visit the city because it will mean a great opportunity to do my eyes examination. I read you are now in BC, good for you !!!! Dr. Anisa Nurani, I wish you a “heavy rain” of blessing in the coming year, happy holidays!!!
– Yanira G. Mendez, Guatemala
We’ve been going to Dr. Anisa for years, driving from the Tri-Cities to see her. She is great with children (very patient and encouraging) as well as knowledgeable. The selection of frames are unique and beautiful – I always see a pair I like even if I’m not shopping. They also have a fantastic selection of sunglasses. – Samantha Agtarap
Very thorough, patient and professional staff. When I first got a prescription from Dr. Moison he let me take the proposed lenses outside to test the long distance vs short range tradeoff. Very attentive to detecting eye problems, treatable conditions such as dry eye. I have no hesitation recommending this team. -Jeff Nagel
