It is with this understanding that we specifically work on differentiating ourselves from the "box-store" eye exam and quick sale. We first and foremost want to ensure the long term health of your vision and then provide customized recommendations based on your day to day visual demands.
Eye care is more than just making sure you can see well. Comprehensive eye care ensures that you have great vision, that your eyes are healthy, and that there are no underlying diseases or conditions that may impact your ability to see.
No two sets of eyes are the same, and so our approach for each starts with a comprehensive understanding of the health of each eye. Our assessment of the eye informs our treatment and management of any vision problems or diseases.
We do our best to provide each patient a fantastic experience each and every time they visit one of our offices. In our minds, the Alberta advantage is about more than tax rates or economic opportunities: it’s about being welcoming and friendly to our friends, patients, guests, and neighbours.
Eye care is a big part of what we do, and so is helping our patients and guests find stylish new eyewear. From classics like Ray Ban, Oakley, Hugo Boss, and Prada, to something a bit more unique, such as Kliik, Kate Spade, and Jean Reno, you will find great styles at any of our four offices.
We value our patients and work hard to care for them to the best of our ability. This starts with our environment: each office is specially crafted to ensure that it is warm, welcoming, and comfortable.
To facilitate our mission, we invest in new diagnostic and therapeutic equipment as it becomes available. New advancements in eye care are integrated into our practice. We evolve as our field does in order to ensure that we are meeting our obligations and commitments as eye care professionals.
