Tele-Optometry at Willoughby Doctors of Optometry

Willoughby Doctors of Optometry offers Tele-Optometry visits.

Join a video or telephone assessment with our Optometrist if you:

  • Are concerned about your ocular health or vision and feel it can be assessed via video, or
  • Are questioning if you should come in or not – start with a video evaluation for a professional opinion.

The government of BC has recently recognized the need for tele-optometry and has partially funded these services through MSP (Medical Services Plan of BC).

Your Tele-Optometry Consultation

During your tele-optometry consultation, we will review your current symptoms and concerns, which may include video chat and photo uploads. You may be asked about your health history, including medications you are taking, so please have this information on hand before your appointment. Your online consultation is protected using encryption technology to protect the privacy of our patients.

You will receive confirmation of your appointment day and time, at which point you can proceed to the virtual waiting room to wait for your appointment.
