A new video website to help improve vision and eye health information features video “house calls” from a doctor of optometry from Nelson.

The site — — features university-trained doctors of optometry from around the province, including Castlegar and Nelson optometrist Dr. Jonathan Proctor – who answer questions about vision and eye health through video. 

Examples of the videos on BC Doctors of Optometry website include:

What is nearsightedness?

What kind of problems can I get if I wear contact lenses?

How often should an adult have their eyes examined? and

What vision problems can be detected by an eye exam?

If your question is not already answered through video on the site, you can submit your question on the Ask a Doctor of Optometry Facebook page, and a BC Doctor of Optometry will respond promptly, typically within 24 hours.

New videos topics will be added on an ongoing basis from other eye doctors throughout B.C.  The videos – which are also accessible through Facebook and YouTube – cover everything from blurry vision to children’s vision problems, age-related eye diseases, eye medications, emergency eye care and more.
