Northern Lights Optometry
– Your Eye Clinic in Whitehorse, Yukon
Getting the right prescription for your eyeglasses or contact lenses is an important part of good eye care. But seeing clearly is just one part of your overall eye health. It’s important to have regular eye exams with an optometrist whether or not you wear eyeglasses or contacts, and even if your vision is sharp.
At Northern Lights Optometry we believe in looking at the big picture when it comes to your eye health, so we take the time to get to know you, your eye care history and your vision needs. Our Optometrists know that getting the right prescription involves balancing several factors, including clear eyesight, visual efficiency and your ability to process visual information seamlessly. Whether you need a routine eye examination, an eyeglasses fitting or treatment for eye disease (such as glaucoma or macular degeneration) or eye surgery (such as LASIK or cataract surgery), our optometrists will provide you with the best care, advice, options and follow up.
Our optometrist, Dr. Guy Gorrell, has a simple and comprehensive approach to optimal eye care, taking a preventative approach to vision correction and maintaining your overall eye health.
I had been having headaches and fatigue for months when it was suggested I have my eyes checked. Had not had my eyes checked in ten years. I was referred to see Dr. Guy Gorrell by a good friend. Dr. Gorrell was professional and very thorough in his assessment of my eyes and overall vision. In the end, Dr. Gorrell was able to diagnose that my eyes did in fact need a prescription lens and my headaches and fatigue were likely due to my straining my eyes to see properly. His friendly and helpful staff assisted me in choosing my frames and in a very short period of time my glasses were available. Since having the prescription glasses my headaches and fatigue have stopped and I am very pleased. I highly recommend Dr. Gorrell and his staff at Northern Lights Optometry.
always a great, professional and knowledgeable experience for myself and my family, whether it's a regular eye exam or a diabetic exam. I've been a patient at Northern lights for over 25 years, and I've always received the quality customer service I've come to expect because that's what I've always received. Great selection of glasses and sunglasses at competitive pricing. I highly recommend Dr. Gorrell and his staff.
Northern Lights Optometry has taken care of my ocular health for the past 30 years. I've never had anything but good experiences. Pleasant, knowledgeable staff and kind, professional service are the standard.
My girlfriend and I are staying in the YT on a work assignment and were both in need of new glasses. The selection of frames was impressive, and the variety of lenses was "eye-opening". The team at Northern Lights Optometry was incredibly helpful and patient with us. Danielle was especially personable and understanding. Thank you for making what's usually a stressful and difficult experience, fun and easy!
