Additional Eye Exam Services Include:


A contact lens fitting can be performed on anyone interested in trying contact lenses for the first time, or simply trying a new brand of contact lenses. Most contact lens fitting can occur at the same time as your eye exam. Learn More!


A laser eye surgery consultation can be performed on anyone who is interested in pursuing procedures such as PRK or LASIK.  Our eye doctors will provide you with an unbiased pre-surgical evaluation and will forward your test results to any surgery centre of your choice. This examination includes a dilated retinal examination along with a cycloplegic eyeglass refraction.  Learn More!


A dilated retinal eye exam provides a more thorough examination of your overall eye health and retinal health. A dilated retinal eye exam is always performed in the case of reduced vision and individuals with medical conditions such as diabetes, cataracts and high blood pressure. A dilated retinal eye exam may also be performed if your eye doctor spots any eye health condition that requires further examination.

A dilated retinal eye exam is covered under Alberta Health Care when medically necessary, standard professional fees otherwise apply. Learn More!
