Ratings for Dr. Altaz Shajani
I have travelled from the Yukon to see Dr. Shajani twice seeking help. Mine is a difficult case - blepharitis, dry eyes, dizziness, convergence, and finding progressive lenses that will work. Dr. Shajani has gone above and beyond trying to find a solution. He is very patient, caring, helpful and takes the time to explain procedures and answer any questions I have. I feel encouraged and hopeful having him as my optometrist. His whole team of staff are very friendly, supportive and accommodating. He runs an amazing practice - I have never experienced anything like it!
We were having troubles figuring our my son's eyes. He would not wear his glasses even though we knew he needed them. Dr. Shajani figured out the problem. It was life changing for my son. It has been four years and I would trust none one else with my family's eyes. Michele who helps pick out our glasses is amazing. She picks out what fits our face and in my view "what is cool." My rims- which I would not have picked - are amazing! They are not cheap. But break it down for what you get...totally worth it.
This was my first visit for an eye exam in almost 10 years. I felt Dr. Shajani was very knowledgeable and had top of the line equipment. Would highly recommend others to see him. The staff was also very friendly and really made you feel comfortable.
Dr. Shahani is very knowledgeable in his field. Helpful, pleasant, and always up to date on the latest treatments, equipment, etc. My experiences at Lynn Valley Optometry have always been very positive and pleasant. Everyone friendly and helpful beyond expectations! The would highly recommend Dr. shamanic and Lynn Valley Ootometry!
We can't say enough good things about Dr Altaz Shajani. He is so patient, mind and has gone above and beyond for our son, who is highly far sighted and has amblyopia. We have seen so much improvement in his eye sight since he has been seeing Dr Altaz. His whole staff and team are very friendly and accommodating. I look forward to my latte when I take my son in for his eye therapy! Highly recommend him and the office !
Do not believe the 5 star reviews. This doctor is terrible. The staff are decent, but the hygiene of the receptionist was terrible. I was there this week and the woman working front reception was constantly coughing all over the place and making no attempt to cover her mouth. She didn't even use the hand sanitizers while handling papers etc. Not what I expected at a clinic. As for the doctor himself, he will not give you the time of day unless you spend a lot of money on glasses or his useless gimmicks. The doctor shouted at the staff while I was waiting, and the staff were complaining behind his back about how terrible of a boss he is. Be very careful when dealing with this doctor.

Great experience with Doctor Shajani. Here are the pros and cons of my visit: Cons: He He is hard to understand because he speaks too fast and uses various technical terms. His staff was not natural, it felt almost like they were trying to recite a script. The glasses are overpriced. I bought the most expensive glasses of my life there, and after leaving the office and doing some research, I saw that I spent too much on the glasses. Pros: Doctor Shajani is such a nice person and seems very knowledgeable. His team was always very courteous and my appointment was on time. My glasses look amazing and I see great. In summary, it was a very pleasant experience, but I feel they are charging way more than they should for what they offer. I am definitely returning, but I might not buy glasses from them anymore.
If you want a so-so eye exam, DO NOT COME HERE! However, if you're looking for 5-star service, the latest in technology, awesome glasses and the most passionate Optometrist in BC (I've lived in Kelowna, Terrace, Nanaimo, East Van and -for the last 19 years- North Van), give your eyes a treat and come to Lynn Valley Optometry. These guys are the real deal. I'd love it if my GP offered my family 10% of the amazing service I get every time I see these guys. No, for real. I'm not a millennial so I am not too keen on reviews, but I thought "well these guys go above and beyond for my eyes, might as well do something out of my comfort zone for them as well". Highly highly recommended.
