All doctors of optometry can provide medically necessary and urgent eye care. There is Alberta Health coverage towards the cost of these eye appointments. Optometrists have the proper knowledge, tools and equipment necessary to diagnose, treat or refer to a specialist, if needed. This includes: eye infections or injuries; foreign objects in the eyes; sudden changes in vision; monitoring for diabetes issues, glaucoma and retinal disease; and post-operative care for cataract patients.
