Alberta Health Care Insured Services:
All patients with Alberta Health Care coverage, regardless of age, are now covered for medical eye care or emergency care visits at our office. Please call and inform our receptionist of the nature of your vision disturbance to ensure it will be covered (red eyes, sudden vision changes, sore eye).
All patients under the age of 19 years old and over the age of 64 are fully covered for a basic eye examination once a year. All office visits, urgent care, dilations, and threshold visual field testing are also covered with Alberta Health Care coverage. Advanced Testing is not covered by Alberta Health Care at this time.
Uninsured Service Fees:
Eye Exam: $120 - Includes a check-up of all parts of the eye. Specifically, we check for glaucoma, cataract detection, corneal disease, etc., and provide an updated glasses prescription. We also evaluate for dry eyes and allergies that may be affecting your comfort. In the event that you require a referral to an eye specialist, we will co-ordinate care and communicate with your other health professionals appropriately to ensure you are seen as soon as possible. Technology has improved our ability to provide you with the most advanced eye care. For example we offer the Optomap Retinal Exam and OCT (Optical Coherence Tomography). The optomap exam is fast, painless and comfortable. Nothing touches your eye at any time. It is suitable for the whole family. To have the exam, you simply look into the device one eye at a time (like looking through a keyhole) and you will see a comfortable flash of light to let you know the image of your retina has been taken. Optical coherence tomography (OCT) is a non-invasive imaging test that uses light waves to take cross-section pictures of your retina, the light-sensitive tissue lining the back of the eye. With OCT, each of the retina’s distinctive layers can be seen, allowing your Optometrist to map and measure their thickness. These measurements help with diagnosis and provide treatment guidance for glaucoma and retinal diseases, such as age-related macular degeneration and diabetic eye disease.
A retinal examination is a vital part of a complete eye exam, and dilation of your pupils may be necessary to provide a more in depth look at the structures in the back of the eye. Your eye care practioner will decide if your pupils need to be dilated depending on your conditions.
Contact Lens Evaluation: $75 - This is a one-time only charge and includes all needed trial lenses and all required follow-up visits. If in the future new lens technology comes out with a lens that would be better for your eyes, we will refit you into the new lenses with no further charges. Our goal is to keep your eyes healthy, clear and comfortable
Police Application Examination: $125 - Includes required testing for applicants to Edmonton Police Service as well as other Canadian cities. Candidates that have had any type of corrective surgery will require additional testing.
After LASIK Night Vision / Contrast Sensitivity Testing: $55 (an EPS application requirement)

Great eyelashes don't just happen overnight. That's why it's important to note that LATISSE® solution works gradually and remarkably — with full results at week 16. Once you begin, you must continue applying the topical solution each night and follow the directions for best results. If you stop using LATISSE® at any time, your eyelashes will return to their previous appearance over several weeks to months.
Set your sights on growth.
As the treatment progresses, you'll first begin to see changes in length. Then, gradually, you'll notice more thickness and darkness in your lashes. If you're satisfied with your results by week 8, don't stop there. Stick with the treatment. After week 16, you'll see the full effect of LATISSE® solution — and so will others. After that, you can talk to your doctor about ongoing use.
Results were proven in our clinical study.
The LATISSE® clinical study was conducted at 16 sites across the country and included 278 participants of varying ages (22 to 78). The study tested LATISSE® solution and a vehicle (or placebo), which was LATISEE® without its active ingredient. Neither patients nor Clinical Investigators knew which group received what treatment. By week 16, the results showed that 78% (107/137) of participants experienced a significant increase in overall eyelash prominence (including elements of length, fullness and darkness), compared to 18% (26/141) for the vehicle group.
Clinical trial results showed lashes were:
25% longer (2% for vehicle)
106% fuller (12% for vehicle)
18% darker (3% for vehicle)
Side effects are possible. Here's what to look out for.
LATISSE® does have some side effects, the most common of which are an itching sensation in the eyes and/or eye redness. These were reported in approximately 4% of patients.
Other less common side effects typically occur on the skin close to where LATISSE® is applied, or in the eyes. These include eyelid skin darkening, eye irritation, dryness of the eyes, and redness of the eyelids. Eyelid skin darkening is a result of increased melanin in the skin, making your eyelid skin look a little darker close to where the solution is applied to the skin. This is expected to reverse after several weeks to months if you decide to stop using the product.
If you're using LATISSE® solution and you develop a new ocular condition or reaction (e.g., trauma or infection), experience a sudden decrease in visual acuity, or need to have eye surgery, be sure to talk to your doctor immediately concerning the continued use of LATISSE®.
LATISSE® (bimatoprost ophthalmic solution) 0.03% Important Information
