How We Elevate Eye Care

Our Proud History

As a local, family-owned and operated optometric practice, Ebata Eye Care greatly appreciates the support of our patients when it comes to their eye care needs. Over the last 40 years, the doctors at Ebata Eye Care have served thousands of patients in Kamloops and the surrounding regions.  We truly believe in supporting the community we live in and make it part of our mandate to give back to various charities and events that are important to our patients.  A patient to us is not just a condition they suffer from, but a person whose quality of life we hope to improve.

Our Dedication To You

Ebata Eye Care believes that one of the most important aspects of health care is developing a trusting relationship between our doctors, staff and patients.  We strive to build strong relationships with each and every patient so that we can provide the best possible care and vision solutions for them.  Our clinic offers the most advanced eye care products and services.   And our highly skilled team can answer all of your questions related to glasses, sunglasses, contact lenses, eye health concerns and therapeutics.  When it comes to something as precious as the gift of sight, we do not compromise with your eyes. We’re committed to providing you the best experience.

"I've been working at Ebata Eye Care for 14 years. I love working with our patients and getting to know them and their families. Another of my favourite aspects of working here is helping our patients choose the best frames, customizing their lenses and at the end, seeing how happy the patient feels with their new pair of glasses. I really enjoy my work family - they make it such a happy place to come to work everyday. I love to garden and enjoy everything outside."

"I have worked at Ebata Eye Care for 6 years. My favourite thing about working at the clinic is seeing the familiar faces of our patients that come year after year as well as my amazing work family. When I am not working I love spending time with my husband and 3 kids. We love camping, fishing, watching movies and playing board games. My daughter and I also enjoy baking cakes together, trying new recipes and designs."
