Our Team

Our well–trained staff are experts in finding the best eyewear or contact lenses to meet your visual needs. Combined, we have nearly 50 years of optical experience.

Visual requirements are uniquely individual and we are very aware of the different needs of our patients. We can help you decide between all the newest technologies in frames, lenses or contact lenses to make your vision the best it can be.

Continuing Education is a must for our office. We are always updating our knowledge with yearly Alberta Optometrist Association Conferences and in-house training.

Most of our staff have taken the Canadian Optometric Assistant Certification Course that is a comprehensive optometric course developed by the Canadian Optometric Association and gives them a designation of C.C.O.A for their efforts.
