We are always checking your eyesight to ensure proper vision, but your total eye health is extremely important to us and we do everything we can to make sure you receive the best personalized care possible.

Illnesses that may be discovered early on through signs in your eyes include high blood pressure, diabetes, high cholesterol and even heart disease.

Co-Management with Ophthalmologists
Sometimes, even when you do everything right, we still discover a problem. The vast majority of ocular diseases present slowly and with little warning. It is vital that care be delivered at the most opportune time. As a result, the optometrists at Cold Lake EyeCare have cultivated an excellent network of specialists. We work in conjunction with your family physician and other medical specialists such as rheumatologists, pediatricians, neurologists, plastic surgeons and dermatologists as well as many ophthalmological sub-specialists including retinal, glaucoma, refractive, corneal, strabismus, oculoplastics, and neuro-ophthalmology.

Cold Lake EyeCare has embraced the benefits of teleophthalmology via Secure Diagnostic Imaging in conjunction with the Royal Alexandra Hospital in Edmonton. Through our retinal photography and the internet we have the ability to send retinal photos for evaluation in Edmonton. We can usually have the evaluation within 48 hours. This prevents countless trips to the city for our patients. If a visit to a specialist is needed, specialized diagnostic testing and treatment can be booked for the same day which reduces the number of visits required. In some cases we can continue to monitor your condition in Cold Lake solely by using this program.
