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.
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.

Dear Dr Marc and Amy,
Just reporting that I am very pleased with my new glasses. They are clear, clean and comfortable. In fact, they are the best lenses I have ever had. The frames make me think that I am young and good looking even though neither is really the case. So thank you Marc and Amy for helping me obtain such a good fit. And of course I must thank you for the extra effort you made to cooperate with Terry. I will certainly recommend you to any of my friends.

Hi Amy & Dr. Moison,
We just wanted to say thank you for replacing Carl’s glasses. He is so happy with the new ones and can’t stop saying how much he loves them. He can finally see more clearly than he has in many years. We really appreciate the service that you have given us and your quick response time. We will be sure to recommend you to others. Thank you so much.

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
I want to share with you how wonderful my new eyeglasses are. It is the first time I have had such a comfortable fit right out of the box. I have no pinching behind the ears or a headache from them being too tight or not fitting correctly. I will not have to return for adjustments. And of course the best part, my vision is perfect with them. Both eyes are lined up, and I know it is a tricky business with my prescription and also progressives. I have received many compliments as well which are always welcome! When I am asked where did I get them, I can’t wait to tell them. I tell them anyway I am so happy and comfortable wearing them.
So Dr Moison, thank you, and also you Amy, because I know your job is to fit them correctly. One more thing, the relaxed atmosphere, coffee, and non-hurried service made a very pleasurable experience for me. Thank you so much!
Regards and blessings,
