On March 18, 2020, Tutt Street Optometry and Okanagan Optical closed our physical doors to do our part to help flatten the curve of the spread of COVID-19. We are happy to announce, under the guidance of the Provincial Health Office of British Columbia and the College of Optometrists of British Columbia, we will be re-opening our doors on May 19.
Keeping our staff and patients healthy is of utmost importance to us and we feel that the physical layout of our clinic, with seven private exam rooms and a completely separate Optical sets us up well for optimal physical distancing. We have adapted our normal way of doing things. Here are the steps we are taking to ensure we can get back to helping people while maintaining health and safety for us all:
We are so excited to get back to doing what we love to do - helping you. Please call or email the clinic with your booking requirements and requests.
We thank you in advance for your patience as we work to safely get back to providing you with the best possible care.
See you soon!

Your glasses are an extension of your personality. You want frames that tell the world exactly what kind of person you are, and we understand that. That’s why we have over 700 spectacle frames for you to browse through, try on, and fall in love with.
And with 250 pairs of sunglasses, you’ll never need to shop for glasses anywhere else. We even have our own in house edging lab, meaning everything you need is right here at Tutt Street Optometry.
This awesome compact machine lets us look at your entire retina. With it, we can do a thorough search for the early signs of disease, or monitor the progression of diseases we’ve already diagnosed.
Using various frequencies, we’ll show you two quickly alternating bars on a screen. If the bars disappear at certain frequencies, it could indicate problems with your eyes. We use this special kind of visual field testing to screen for Glaucoma and other issues.
A specialized low power microscope with a camera attached takes pictures of the inside surface of your eye. This amazing tool helps us take a closer look at your retina and surrounding blood vessels, optic disk, macula, and posterior pole.
Handmade in France, each of the François Pinton frames is unique and marked by a style that has grown since 1953. Today, François Pinton designs a collection of frames with new colors and bold forms whose refinement and know-how are the key words of a brand that continues from generation to generation.

Come see us for yourself. We’re located Kelowna’s Pandosy Village District, across from Raymer Elementary School.
