Newton Optometry Clinic was originally a satellite location of Pacific eyeDoctors® on Scott Road. Dr. Susy Pierazzo bought the practice in 1997, and Newton Optometry has since grown into a thriving clinic proudly serving our local community. We thank our patients who continue to come from all over BC for our friendly, knowledgeable and professional service!
We bring a personalized approach to our services, where we work together to help you understand your ocular health as well as the treatments, products and services that will best suit your unique needs. We believe that maintaining good eye health is an ongoing partnership between patient and doctor, and that’s why we encourage our patients to ask questions and share health information. We invite you to meet our doctors, or contact us today to get started.
