Welcome to Shaughnessy Optometry!

When you walk into Shaughnessy Optometry, we see more than just a patient; we see a whole person. We don’t simply want to diagnose and treat any eye issues you may have; we want to connect with you as a person. Our staff is warm, friendly, and caring. We welcome you visit us today, and join our Shaughnessy Optometry family.

Our Thorough Approach
to Eye Care

Our patients know us for the thorough, comprehensive level of care we provide. It’s not enough for us to understand the state of your eye health; we want you to understand as well. That’s why we are committed to taking our time, describing our testing procedures, explaining your results, and walking you through what the next steps may be.

At Shaughnessy Optometry, you get more than just eye care; you get clear and honest answers.

Because we are determined to provide the most thorough eye care possible, we have invested in state of the art equipment to help us better monitor and maintain the health of your eyes. Machines like the OCT, our digital retinal camera, and the perimeter allow us to ensure your eyes are fully functional and even look for early signs of diseases like glaucoma, cataracts, and age-related macular degeneration.

We Can Relieve Your
Dry Eye Symptoms

Dry eye is a very common eye problem, affecting roughly 25% of all Canadians. This issue can cause sensitivity to light, fatigue, and even corneal ulcers in serious cases. But you don’t have to live with these awful symptoms.

The doctors at Shaughnessy Optometry specialise in dry eye diagnosis and treatment. Visit us; we’ll help you find a treatment to alleviate your symptoms and help your eyes feel normal again.

Latisse Creates Longer
Natural Eyelashes

There is only one medically approved method to increase the length and volume of your eyelashes; that method is called Latisse. Unlike lash extensions or tinting, Latisse actually increases your lash growth, allowing your eyelashes to actually grow longer and thicker. Because it is a medical treatment, it does require a prescription. Visit Shaughnessy Optometry and ask one of our optometrists if Latisse is right for you.

Shop Our Huge Variety of Stylish Eyewear

Your new glasses should be as unique as you are. You shouldn’t have to settle for anything less than love at first sight. That’s why we have around 800 frames in stock, so you can find the pair that makes you say “wow”.

With popular brands like Etnia Barcelona, FYSH, Swarovski, Tom Ford and MODO, you can rest assured that you’re investing in quality, trustworthy eyewear. Browse all of our eyewear brands.

We Offer In-House Edging

We understand that you don’t want to wait for your new glasses. Our in-house edging lab allows us to get your glasses back sooner, and at a lower cost to you!
