Part of a network that includes Chemainus Family Eyecare and Lake Cowichan Eyecare, the five physicians at South Cowichan Eyecare assess and correct sight with a slew of vision-correction services. The ultimate eye exam, for example, spans diagnostics ranging from a digital retinal scan that minimizes the need for dilation to a nerve-fibre analysis that can detect glaucoma up to 10 years earlier than previous technology or psychics. Optometrists can then correct views through LASIK or hand off patients to eyewear technicians who take measurements for prescription glasses, sunglasses, view-masters, or contacts. For added convenience, the clinic offers scheduling through online appointment requests.

Smallville viewers will recognize one of The Falcon Lady's birds, Thorn, from his guest appearance on the episode "Veritas." But if glimpsing a bird of prey is what they're after, locals need only look down at their own arms. That's because The Falcon Lady, Joanne, teaches workshop attendees how to handle falcons themselves, crediting her and her apprentices' nuanced philosophy with making each experience safe. "Our companions," she says, "know themselves to respected, and loved." But Joanne doesn't anthropomorphize them. Instead, she and her staff take pride in socializing the birds of prey and earning their trust. Even 3-year-olds have held small falcons at her facility because Joanne is confident in the safe, trusting relationships she forges with the animals.
In the morning, The Old Fork welcomes early risers into its rustic interior, where they can start their day off with cups of freshly brewed coffee and hearty plates of breakfast poutine topped with a fried egg. The lunchtime crowd satisfies its midday cravings with the brawny Montreal meat sandwich and grilled Cajun chicken burger. As the sun begins to dip below the horizon, the lights dim and the dining room transforms into a scene for romantic date nights, complete with glasses of signature champagne, cocktails, and cold, local craft beers. During dinner hours, the kitchen prepares small plates including carpaccio with horseradish aioli and slow-braised butter chicken served over rice pilaf with fluffy naan bread.
