NOTICE! Due to COVID-19 we have new procedures in place. Screening will be done upon arriving and masks are required. We are now booking appointments for all our services, including eye exams, adjustments, and picking out glasses. Please show up to your appointment alone to follow social distancing. Please give us a call to book an appointment: 705-566-6858


Dr. John Skilling and the skilled Family Vision Centre optometrists and opticians have looked after Sudbury’s vision needs since 1972. From comprehensive eye exams, contact lenses fitting, designer eye wear, to laser surgery consultations, our experienced professionals can help you through the process.

COVID-19 procedures starting June 1st 2020

  • Family Vision Centre is pleased to announce that the Ontario Government has amended directive #2 allowing a gradual return to practice. We are happy to inform our patients that our staff have completed professional PPE and disinfecting training to ensure the safety for everyone. We are looking forward to continue servicing current and new patients, however you may notice some changes to our office and procedures.
  • Due to physical distancing, we will be limiting the number of people in our office at any given time. We ask all our patients to call in advance to schedule an appointment for any of our services such as glasses pickup adjustments and repairs. This will assure you are seen in a timely manner.
  • All visitors are required to wear a mask and use our hand sanitizer dispenser located on our front entrance door before entering the office. If you do not have a mask, one will be provided upon entering our office. We ask that patients who prefer to not wear a mask to schedule an appointment on a future date when social distancing is no longer in affect.
  • In order to keep time spent in office to a minimum, questions that would normally be asked at our office will now be conducted over the phone.
  • For any appointment, we ask that you please come into our office without anyone else (exceptions can be made)
  • In some cases a visit to the office might not be necessary as we might be able to assist you over the phone. If you require parts for your frame, new lenses or to order contact lenses, please contact us. In some circumstances we may ask to send a picture of the defective product.
  • As directed by the public safety you will need to answer the COVID-19 screening questions before your arrival at the office.
  • We ask that you arrive only 5 minutes before your appointment
