Raised in Edmonton, Dr. Jennifer Ash is a graduate of the University of Alberta. She received her Doctor of Optometry from the New England College of Optometry in Boston, Massachusetts in 2004 and completed her residency in primary care and contact lenses at the University of California, Berkeley School of Optometry in 2005. Dr. Ash believes that building relationships with her patients is essential to providing the best eye care, and finds it important to treat her patients with the same level of care as she would provide to a family member. She makes an ongoing effort to remain up to date on advancements and technology in optometry because they promote the early detection and treatment of eye disease, they are essential to providing advanced, modern comprehensive eye care services, and because they are one of the key indicators of a great optometric clinic. Dr. Ash also strongly believes in giving back to the community. She has volunteered at Edmonton's Homeless Connect for more than a decade, and has supported the Terry Fox Foundation and the Stollery Children's Hospital Foundation since she was an undergraduate student. Dr. Ash previously worked at FYidoctors, Oliver Village. She decided to establish Eye-deology Vision Care in order to provide the highest quality and most extensive suite of eye care services in Edmonton. She welcomes you to visit the clinic to see the difference that caring can make to improving your vision!

An optometrist is a primary eye care provider who can conduct eye exams, write prescriptions, and treat eye diseases and disorders. Canadian optometrists require seven to eight years of training at a post-secondary institution before obtaining their professional designation as a Doctor of Optometry (also known as an OD). There are currently two schools of optometry in Canada: The University of Waterloo and the Université de Montréal. There are 20 additional optometry schools in the United States whose graduates are accredited to practice in Canada. Many optometrists also choose to do an extra year of residency (a type of internship) to specialize in a particular type of training or eye care field.

In Canada, optometrists are overseen by provincial/territorial boards that ensure all qualifications are up to date. National tests are also administered by the Canadian Examiners in Optometry to ensure that OD training meets the high level of care expected by Canadian patients.
