  • Can't recommend this place enough! I am visiting from the US for work and woke up one morning with an eye infection. Dr. Sharma was able to squeeze me in that same day and had me cleared up in time for the weekend. He is friendly and knowledgeable and never seemed hurried or rushed at all during either appointment. The front office staff was very friendly as well. An excellent experience overall.
  • Fit me in same day and got everything done. Super friendly and professional. Loved it.
  • My current employer, absolutely fantastic clinic! Easy to get same day appointments with little wait time! Highly recommended.
  • Dr. Sharma has been exceptionally kind and helpful to me, not to mention attentive and available at a moment's notice. I would recommend Inner Harbour Optometry to anyone looking for an optometrist in Victoria!
  • Great Doctor, very pleasant and easy to talk to, thorough, convenient hours, friendly staff. No complaints at all.

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.
