image-homeDr. Darren Sass welcomes you

InSight Optometry & Occupational Therapy provides comprehensive eyecare, pediatric occupational therapy, vision training, as well as brain injury and neuro-developmental assessments. Our clinic is dedicated to helping children and adults improve visual, motor, and other sensory skills to become more effective tools for school, sports, work and play. We are centrally located in Walnut Grove, just off Highway 1, in the Langley area.

Vision problems may go unnoticed by parents and teachers. Learning, attention and behaviour challenges are common when visual development is delayed. Correcting these problems promotes comfort, confidence and ability to learn. Children don't need to know the alphabet or even speak to have an eye exam. We recommend that all children have routine eye exams at 6 months of age and yearly thereafter.

We also offer pediatric occupational therapy, which can have a great impact on a child's life. Children with delayed gross and fine-motor skills, balance, and coordination problems can have a tough time. Proper assessment, diagnosis, remediation, and adaptation of these issues help children achieve success at any activity.

At InSight Optometry & Occupational Therapy, we are dedicated to providing high-quality optometry services in a comfortable environment. Call us at 604-455-0477 or schedule an appointment today online.
