We believe eye care goes beyond seeing patients for regular eye exams. With all our patients and families, we want to educate them on their eye health and how to protect their vision. Your vision is one of your most treasured assets, and we’re here to help you protect it.
To provide each patient with the highest level of comprehensive eye care in a caring and family-oriented environment.

Sight for Sport
Optimal health is essential for the systematic long-term training required for elite athletes. SportHealth is a comprehensive medical management program directed towards early recognition and treatment of injury and illness, and the identification of health and safety risks during the training and competitive cycles.
As a building block of the program, PacificSport Okanagan focuses on bringing together many medical care providers in the Okanagan to service the area’s thousands of members.
Orchard Park Optometry is proud to be affiliated with PacificSport Okanagan, bringing comprehensive eye care services to the network for the first time. In addition to comprehensive vision and eye health exams, Orchard Park Optometry provides in-depth sport-specific vision testing.
We can prescribe eyeglasses or contact lenses optimized to help elevate visual performance for the athlete. These exams normally cost $130 but are discounted for adult members for $99. Exams for kids under age 19 are fully covered by MSP.
It’s important to know that good vision isn’t only about seeing clearly; it’s also about how our eyes work together as a team—a term we call binocular vision. Having poor binocular vision can affect an athlete’s hand-eye coordination, depth perception, reaction time, ability to track moving objects, and ability to adjust focus quickly to objects at different distances.
Thankfully, there are eye exercises and training strategies that can improve visual and overall performance. Even for an athlete with average skills, eye training exercises can elevate performance to a more elite level.
