Trusted by the Community – Real Eyes Metrotown Optometrist

“I am new to Burnaby and was due for my yearly eye checkup. I had an appointment with Dr. Pati. He is so kind, knowledgeable and took time to check completely all the tests. He also took time to check my kid as well. I am completely happy with Dr. Pati and definitely see and recommend my friends for any eye checkups.

“I was referred to come visit Real Eyes Optometry as it was time to get my eyes checked. This is my first time here and I was welcomed by the friendly staff at the counter. Dr. Sahota conducted the eye examination and the entire process was smooth and she answered all the questions I had. I had many eye examinations from other optometrists and I would say this was one of the best, most thorough examinations I had. Dr. Sahota is highly knowledgeable, caring and patient. I highly recommend anyone to visit here for your next eye examination.”— Edward Ko

Pediatric Services Comparison

Dr. Shaun Pati has been voted the “Best Pediatric Optometrist in Burnaby” four years in a row, and this is no accident. Our passion is to provide family-centered, and patient-centered care.

Large chain optometry stores can be less invested in your eye health and more on the bottom line. Selecting a family-first eye doctor near you provides you the flexibility and comfort to bring your whole family. In addition, you’ll typically receive more personalized and custom treatments. A family-first optometry clinic is also more likely to have a kids play area as well! 

We know parents have a lot on their plate, so having a play area means your kids can have fun while you attend to your own vision and health needs.

Metrotown Optometrist Services & Advanced Technologies

To ensure you receive the best care possible, explore our cutting-edge technologies and procedures that set us apart as your premier Metrotown optometrist.

Vision Therapy

Despite being used for over 20 years in dermatology and cosmetic aesthetics, radio frequency treatments are a relatively unknown technological discovery with instant relief and long-term benefits. One of Dr. Amit Sahota’s interests is developing customized strategies for enhancing patients’ visual abilities. Vision therapy, much like physical therapy, is a specialized form of treatment for people with vision problems like lazy eye, strabismus, double vision, difficulty focusing (accommodation), or other binocular vision dysfunctions.

A Metrotown optometrist can change the trajectory of a patient’s visual function with the help of cutting-edge procedures and Dr. Sahota’s dedication to finding solutions to difficult problems through individualized treatment plans.

Dry Eye Treatments with Radio Frequency

Despite being used for over 20 years in dermatology and cosmetic aesthetics, radio frequency treatments are a relatively unknown technological discovery with instant relief and long-term benefits.

The radio frequency device reduces facial wrinkles by tightening skin and increasing collagen and elastin production. Radio frequency, originally used on the skin, also treats burning eyes, visual irregularities, contact lens issues, overly watery eyes, irritated and itchy eyes, and other dry eye symptoms. This is a major technological advancement given 25% of the Canadian population suffer from dry eye disease.

Radio Frequency Treatments

Orthokeratology (Overnight Corrective Lenses)

Orthokeratology, or Ortho-K, provides a revolutionary solution to vision correction by reshaping the cornea with specially constructed contact lenses worn overnight to optimize the focus of light entering the eye. These lenses are removed as the user awakens, providing the wearer with clear, unaided vision throughout the day, eliminating the need for glasses or standard contact lenses. 

Ortho-K therapy is a revolutionary solution for those who lead active lifestyles and participate in sports in which glasses are not appropriate, yet participants cannot afford to be without the vision aid.

 Many of the disadvantages of using contact lenses during the day, including dust, pollutants, irritation, and dryness, can be avoided by wearing Ortho-K lenses while sleeping and being contact lens free during the day.

Orthokeratology Is a Life Changing Treatment
