Medicine Hat Vision Care – Jim Stewart

Adult Exam Information

Comprehensive adult eye examinations are generally needed every two years and are not covered by Alberta Health Care. However, for your convenience, we do direct bill all insurance companies that do allow payments directly to us.

Child Exam Information

Eye examinations are vital to the health and development of a child’s sight and should be done at age 6 months, age 3, age 5, and yearly thereafter.

LASIK/PRK Exam Information

If you are considering, or have questions about, LASIK, PRK or other refractive surgery, our doctors can provide the answers you are looking for.

Medical Eye Health and Emergencies

Medical eye health exams, including ocular emergencies, are now covered through Alberta Health Care. This includes red eyes, eye pain or discomfort, ocular foreign bodies as well as annual diabetic medical eye exams.

Senior Exam Information

Alberta Health Care will pay for an eye health exam once every year for people 65 years and older. It is highly recommended that seniors have a thorough vision and eye health exam yearly.

Sight Test vs. Complete Eye Health Exam

Sight tests are advertised by opticians (those who sell eyeglasses) in order to make lenses in eyeglasses. Their testing is based solely on a computerized measurement, and they do not test the general function or health of the eyes.

The Newest Technology

In our continued efforts to bring the most advanced technology available to our patients we are proud to that the Optomap Retinal Exam has been an integral part of our routine eye exams since 2006.
