Full-Service Eye Clinic in Ottawa

Our optometry practice was founded in 1983 when Dr. Tripp opened his office on Carling Avenue, just west of Carlingwood Shopping Centre. In 1998, it relocated to the second floor of Hampton Park Plaza (Carling at Kirkwood). The most central location in Ottawa, the plaza is 12 minutes from either Kanata or Orleans with easy Queensway access and free parking. In 2008, we invested in digital retinal photography to assist in detecting and monitoring diabetic eye disease, macular degeneration and glaucoma. In 2013, we added wavefront aberrometry, corneal topography and electronic refraction to make the “which is better, one or two” experience a less stressing but highly accurate process. We know you will enjoy our recent clinic and waiting room renovations.
