Medical Visits

We offer a wide variety of medical visits. Medically necessary visits are covered by Alberta Health Care in most circumstances. Medical visits include visits for several reasons as indicated below. 

We also accept referrals from other providers for specialty services or products.

A list of most services is below.

Diabetic Eye Exams

Diabetes can impact vision and blood vessels in the retina. If you are diagnosed with diabetes or have any visual issues, they may be related to diabetic changes in your eye. It is recommended that anyone diagnosed or being treated for diabetes be seen for a dilated diabetic eye exam annually for a dilated exam and fundus imaging.

 

Findings can help determine the extent of diabetic changes have occurred in the eye, and by extension, in the brain. Diabetes can also cause cataracts, dry eye, and abnormal blood vasculature on the eye that can be assessed at these visits. 

Annual diabetic exams are recommended.
