Underwood-Ashton Building (Vernon Optometry)

It’s much more than seeing clearly at Vernon Optometry, the design team at MQN worked closely with the doctors to make eye health a priority by providing a comfortable patient-focused experience in tandem with leading-edge technology to achieve the most advanced care centre in the Okanagan area.

One of the major project drivers was to take all the stress out of eye exams and make patients at ease with more of an experiential approach to the design of the space. Together we broke through the barriers of a traditional doctor’s office flow and set up to allow for a more open, relaxing and engaging experience for patients and doctors alike.

The space boasts a centralized reception so patients can be assisted from all angles, open concept layout to allow for access to natural light and views, relaxing seating arrangements in several areas throughout the facility, free WiFi, coffee bar, custom saltwater tank with exotic fish, modern and roomy patient rooms and a kids area with specialized seating, fun graphics, games, toys with funky retail displays and mirrors down at their level to engage them in the experience.

Their new modern and trendy retail dispensary allows them the space to have one of the largest selections of eyewear in the North Okanagan.

 Vernon Optometry is one of the only offices in the Okanagan to have leading-edge technology like the Optomap panoramic retinal imaging camera as well as their own in-house optical lens fabrication lab which has set them apart from many of the other more traditional optometry offices in the area.
