Russell West Optometry: Authentic & Innovative Eye Care


As per the directive from the Government of Ontario on May 27th, Optometry clinics are now able to open in a directed “responsible manner” in Ontario.

Our clinic will re-open on June 8th.

All of us at Russell West Optometry care greatly about our patients and our community, and we’ve been working hard at making changes that will keep you and our team safe as we deliver our eye care services to the Lindsay area.

To support this the following changes have been made:

  • Diligent disinfection protocols, and procedures that maintain safe distancing.
  • Access into the clinic by appointment only.
  • Extended hours to compensate for less access to the building.
  • Please view the above video that best explains “The New” Russell West Optometry.

Booked and Moved Eye Examination Appointments

  • We have had to cancel many appointments, and in spite of the longer hours, safe distancing dictates that all doctors have to greatly change their schedules.
  • As we begin to book people back in we will have to triage and attend to more urgent cases over routine care.
  • We ask for your patience as we navigate through this challenging scheduling situation.

Optical Services

  • All optical services will now be by appointment only.
  • You will be able to book this online yourself through the website, or by phone or email.
  • Also some optical services can be delivered curbside – please contact us for details.

We thank you for your patience and support!

Begone, Dry Eyes!

There is never a “good” time to have dry eyes. It can occur at the most inopportune moment. When it happens, this can make it hard to see and focus, affecting the enjoyment of your day or even your workflow.

Dry eye symptoms can have a variety of root causes, including gland blockages in your eyelid or exposure to dry and dusty air. Dry eyes can also occur as a side effect of medications you may be taking.

So, what are you to do? By visiting Russell West Optometry, we can provide a wide range of options to help treat your dry eye symptoms so you can get back to enjoying the things you love most.
