Meet our eye doctors

Kelowna Eye Doctors

Alongside our associates at Pearle Vision, the team of eye doctors at Sun Valley Optometry provide excellent family-oriented care for our valued patients here at our office in Kelowna’s Orchard Park mall. We think of eye care from a preventive approach and don’t just consider how clearly you see, but many other components to visual function to make sure your eyes are working efficiently as well.
