  • Best prescription ever. Professional service. Inspires confidence.
  • Easy going staff, and super easy procedure for students at UVIC. Just go in there, her an appointment, sign a form for direct billing from your UVSS health plan and you're done. Still can't believe how easy all that was. And as a UVic student, i just paid $20.
  • Dr. Sharma is a fantastic optometrist! I have a history of retinal tears, and he follows me routinely. He is always very kind and reassuring. His office is quick and efficient.....saves me from seeing my specialist for long three hour visits! A big thanks to Dr. Sharma and his staff!
  • From the moment I walked in I was impressed with the professionalism of Dr. Sharma and his staff. The team at Inner Harbour Optometry were very welcoming and made my visit enjoyable. They have a very modern and well kept office. Dr. Sharma took his time to explain what was happening with my eyes and answered all my questions. I never felt rushed and left feeling that the health of my eyes was in good hands. I will continue to use this clinic and refer all family and friends to Dr. Sharma.
  • Dr. Sharma is very Professional, explains things very well, friendly and no wait time. Highly recommend going there.

Where to stay in Victoria

The curling waterfront Wharf Street, which becomes Store Street, offers the best selection of lodgings in the city center, although you can expect to pay extra for the trademark views. Many travelers opt to stay in the neighborhood of James Bay, where Belleville Street and surrounds provide comfortable and even luxurious options. For something more relaxed and closer to nature, look south to the expansive Beacon Hill Park.
