Patients of Eye-deology Vision Care,
On Thursday, March 19th, 2020 the Alberta College of Optometrists, the regulatory and licensing body for the profession of optometry in Alberta responsible for ensuring that optometrists practice their profession in the best interests of the public, requested that all optometrists close their offices and limit activities to triaging emergent care for the next 6 weeks as a means to slow the growth curve and limit the community spread of COVID-19.
In support of the Alberta College of Optometrists and with staff, patient, and public health and safety the number one priority, Eye-deology Vision Care will be temporarily closed until May 1st, 2020. During our temporary closure, our doctors will remain available to patients by telephone to address and/or redirect any emergent care situations.
For patients expecting delivery of prescription eyewear, when your order is ready, we will contact you to schedule a date/time for safe, responsible pickup that maximizes social distancing standards.
We sincerely regret having to temporarily close the clinic and any inconvenience that it may cause, but presently we feel that doing so is in the best interests of our patients, staff, and our community. Please be assured that we are committed to re-opening the clinic at the earliest opportunity supported by the healthcare community. Until then, we will continue to support and care for our patients to the best of our ability in a socially-distanced environment.
We wholeheartedly wish the best of health to everyone and sincerely thank every individual and family for their continued understanding and support during this challenging time.
Please monitor our website and social media channels along with your email inbox for future clinic updates.

eye-deology Vision Care offers a comprehensive suite of eye care services and eyewear products. Optometric eye care services include comprehensive eye exams, specialty testing (Wide-Angle Digital Scanning, OCT & Topographer), eye disease (e.g., glaucoma and macular degeneration) diagnosis and treatment, laser eye surgery co-management, and emergency (e.g., foreign body removal) services. Eyewear products and services include prescription eyeglasses, safety glasses and sunglasses, custom contact lens fitting, professional eyewear fitting, and more.
Child | Adult | Senior | Diabetic
Our comprehensive eye exams can include more than 20 individual screening tests and scans. Healthy children and young adults often only require the core screening tests, while contact lens wearers, laser eye surgery patients, seniors, and individuals with symptoms or medical issues, such as diabetes, typically require additional advanced tests and scans.
Scanner | OCT | Topography
We provide a number of specialty testing services. eye-deology Vision Care uses advanced modern technologies like digital retinal scanners, Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT), and a corneal topographer to generate wide-angle, high resolution, 3D images of the retina and cornea. These technologies promote the early detection and treatment of eye diseases.
Glaucoma | AMD | Dry Eye
eye-deology Vision Care optometrists can treat and/or co-manage a variety of eye conditions, disorders and diseases. These include everything from treating refractive errors with prescription eyewear to treating glaucoma and dry eye disorder, or to co-managing diseases like age-related macular degeneration with an ophthalmologist.
Glasses | Contact Lenses | Safety
eye-deology Vision Care offers a great selection of prescription eyewear, including eyeglass frames and lenses, contact lenses, sunglasses, and safety eyewear. With our onsite lab and modern eyewear dispensary centre, our opticians can provide you with customized eyewear solutions that fit your lifestyle, corrective needs, and budget.
The eye-deology Vision Care team believes that knowledge exchange is an essential part of the eye care process so that patients can make informed decisions and choices. Topics frequently discussed with patients and their families are presented below.
An individual's vision can change dramatically during the early and later stages of their life. Accordingly, annual eye exams are recommended for children and seniors. Healthy adults are recommended to have an eye exam every two years. However, adults with health conditions, like diabetes or with strong prescriptions are recommended to visit their optometrist annually.
Diabetics are encouraged to have regular eye exams to look for changes in the blood vessels of the retina indicative of diabetic retinopathy - a disease, that left untreated, can lead to blindness. Using advanced technologies to capture wide-angle, high resolution images of the retina, eye-deology Vision Care doctors can detect and treat diabetic retinopathy early in its development.
Glaucoma can be treated with eye drops, oral medication, laser surgery, traditional surgery, or a combination of them. If detected early, glaucoma can be successfully managed with eye drops or medication. Advanced glaucoma typically requires laser or traditional surgery. The goal of all of these treatments is to prevent loss of vision, as vision loss from glaucoma is irreversible.
It is essential that eyeglasses fit both your face and head so that the lenses are properly aligned with your eyes. Frames that are too large can slip, misaligning the optics, which in turn can cause headaches. Frames that are too small can pinch, scratch, and/or irritate the sides of your face. Improperly sized frames can also cause discomfort behind the ears or on the bridge of the nose.
Annual eye exams are essential for maintaining and monitoring your occular and physical health.
