Thank you to Dr Cam McCrodan and all the exceptional staff at Opto-Mization. My son had been struggling with reading at school and at home, and I had a suspicion that he might have an issue with his eyes and may need glasses. Dr. Cam did a series of exams and questions to assess his condition. As it turned out my son had an eye tracking issue and did require glasses and vision therapy. With new glasses and vision therapy, my son has found reading at school and home to be much more enjoyable. He no longer finds himself struggling and being met with frustration. I've seen his confidence blossom since getting the vision therapy and new glasses. When he first got his glasses, his friends wanted them to. Because of the dramatic change in my sons eyes I decided to get my eyes checked with Dr Scott and found that I needed glasses as well. The staff of the optical department were amazing and helped my find my first pair of glasses. They were not satisfied till I was with my prescription. Please take the time to check out Opto-Mization, they can help with more than just troubles with sight and reading. Tyler Galloway

It’s been a few years since I went through the whole vision therapy. I’m dropping in here to share what has been beneficial from this training in the past few years. I am completing a 4 year program currently in post secondary and I’m looking back in such appreciation for this therapy. I’m able to understand what I’m reading much more efficiently. I can get through my exams at a normal amount of time. My eyes don’t feel strained as easily if I want to study for longer sessions. I can sit down for longer to study without feeling what I thought were attention problems but were that my eyes were constantly strained. Thank you for the amazing therapy!! School would have been a nightmare if I hadn’t done this training.

My family's journey with Opto-Mization began out of sheer concern for my children. My youngest (7 at the time) struggled with reading, and traditional approaches - including getting glasses - hardly made a difference. His difficulties were often misinterpreted, leading to inappropriate solutions like ADHD medications. Everything changed when an occupational therapist suggested visiting a developmental optometrist. I'd never heard that term, but when I googled it Opto-Mization came up. I took the leap and contacted Dr. Cam, who diagnosed my child with convergence insufficiency. With therapy, His transformation was incredible. He began reading voluntarily, and showed remarkable improvement in his schoolwork. That led me to bring in my daughter (11 at the time), who had depth perception issues that led to clumsiness, and awkwardness in catching and kicking in sports. We had no idea her this could be a vision problem. Working with Opto-Mization, her transformation was instantaneous, enhancing her reflexes and understanding of spatial relationships. This has provided wonderful benefits in sports, and will continue to help her when she becomes old enough to start driving. My eldest (15 at the time) faced similar challenges, spending exhaustive hours on homework. Post-diagnosis, she underwent the same therapy, leading to astounding improvements.The five hours of homework she used to do was cut to two, and she got better grades and was happier at school! Our family's quality of life has significantly improved, and it's all thanks to Opto-Mization's care and innovative approach. I will forever be grateful, and highly recommend this clinic.

Really friendly and efficient staff. Appreciated that they didn't try to push a service that I did not need - that's integrity.

Amazing experience! I have spent most of my life struggling to wear glasses. Constant headaches. Spent thousands $$ on prescriptions that never helped my vision. I had given up. Coming here was a last ditch effort. The eye exam(s) were new to me as I never had my vision tested like this before. When given my new prescription I was still skeptical. It's been two months now and I can honestly say that I have never worn glasses as much...I often forget that I have them on. Headaches have subsided and I don't feel as tired as before. I can look at a computer screen longer at work without feeling the need to look away and reset. All in all it has been a life changing experience. Thanks so much!!!

Dr. Irvine is great. I have high prescription nearsightedness. The brand new glasses he prescribed for me fit perfectly from day one. I don't feel any eye strain. He measured very accurately. The frame picked out by staff works for me too. They are a very professional team together.

Before we discovered Opto-Mization, our son Theo was struggling. Living in rural BC, he faced challenges in a resource-limited school environment. His teachers, overwhelmed, seemed to have given up on him. With a short attention span (much like me), Theo was falling behind, especially in math and reading. Then COVID hit, worsening the situation. We moved to Victoria - partly looking for a better learning environment. Theo's new teacher noticed his distractibility, and suggested testing for ADHD. Around the same time, a cousin working at Opto-Mization gave us a gift card for a consultation. There, we met Dr. Cam McCrodan. Dr. Cam's diagnosis was a revelation. Theo's eye tracking was severely impaired – one of the worst cases he'd seen. He prescribed special 'prism' glasses. The change in Theo, once he got his new glasses, was dramatic. He started engaging in reading and schoolwork like never before. For a parent, seeing your child overcome such hurdles and flourish is an indescribable feeling. Theo's now just like any other boy, doing well at school, playing rugby and enjoying the outdoors. Thanks to Opto-Mization, we have a new perspective on how to address learning challenges, and we're looking forward to telling others about it.

Everyone here is lovely, friendly and relatable. Cameron is incredibly impressive, making a difference in my son's vision and reading comprehension during diagnosis! I can hardly wait to see how well he does with therapy and his new glasses. They stand behind their treatment with a money back guarantee. We're very excited to see his progress.

Dr. Cameron McCroden is a king. I have suffered with double vision since I was a kid and he has been the first person to ever help address it. The knowledge he gave me on how the brain and eyes function was so eye opening on multiple issues I’ve struggled with for 25+ years. Karen was also so lovely and patient helping me pick out glasses. If you think you have a good optometrist… I’d suggest you go here to have such a different spin on your eye health as you won’t regret it. Thanks to all the staff here!
