At our clinic, we provide a complete screening and assessment of your eyes. We start off by checking your colour vision, depth perception, and eye pressures. The doctor then checks your eye movements, pupils and peripheral vision. We then assess your glasses and/or contact lens prescription and thoroughly check your eyes for glaucoma, cataracts and other eye diseases. We also take a 200 degree photo of the back of your eye to ensure a more thorough check of your eye health.
To the perfect contact lenses for your eyes, we do a contact lens exam followed by a training session and fitting for you. You will sit down, one to one, with one of our staff members who will properly teach you how to insert and remove your contact lenses. The doctors will fit you in a contact lens which suites your lifestyle and ensure that the lenses fit properly on your eyes. We charge a one-time-fee which includes your training sessions, follow up appointments and trials of contact lenses. We want to ensure that you are 100% happy with the comfort and vision of your contacts before you order!
Contact lenses are considered a medical device, therefore we need to have an updated contact lens prescription before we can order lenses for you. We can always get a copy of your contact lens prescription if it was from another clinic, or, have you complete a contact lens fitting with one of our doctors.
We do provide medically necessary eye exams, and they are covered by Alberta Health Care.

In most cases, no. We have an Optomap Retinal Camera which takes a 200 degree photo of the back of your eye. This new technology gives us a lot of information about your eyes. Your doctor will assess your eye health and will let you know if they want to have you back for a dilated eye exam.
