Dr. Mike Joljart

This includes contact lenses for astigmatism, bifocal contact lenses, and working with patients who have dry eyes. He has also gained a wealth of knowledge seeing patients who are over 65 years of age. This often includes more specific issues such as macular degeneration, cataracts, dry eyes, and other diseases that are more common in the senior population.

Outside of optometry, Dr. Joljart enjoys being outdoors. He especially enjoys biking, ideally in the mountains. He loves to be with his family, which includes his wife Dr. Kelsey Ford, their two great kids, and two cuddly dogs.

Dr. Ford has been actively seeing patients part-time in the Edmonton area since 2003, but decided to open her own practice in 2012 as a way to better serve the needs of her patients. Answering questions and helping patients understand their exam is a passion of Dr. Ford’s. She is currently taking new patients and welcomes all to her practice.

Dr. Ford is dedicated to keeping your eyes healthy and seeing well – this means staying up to date on current medical trends.

GREAT experience. Dr. Joljart was fantastic with my kids (3 and 5). My son's glasses were ready to go in a very reasonable amount of time and they had lots of options available for me. Katrina was a great help when it came time to choose which glasses would be the best choice for us. Thank you guys 🙂

What a great experience! I can't say enough, I am very picky when it comes to my eyes and Dr. Krol was very helpful in getting me exactly the contacts I needed for doing my various outdoor activities. I was also in need of some new glasses and there are so many fashionable options to choose from. The ladies helping me with my glasses selection and ordering were professional but also helped with the process and gave awesome recommendations! Two very big thumbs up for this team!

They were wonderfully helpful and very professional. My husband even commented, " They actually explained everything, I've never seen a doctor do that before." A very pleasant experience (other than the eye puff thing haha.)

As a repeat client I am exceptionally pleased with the levels of service and courtesy afforded by everyone that works at this facility. They always take great care of my needs and this year when I threw them a curve ball by introducing my older and somewhat disabled friend they handled his needs with tact and compassion and most certainly have earned him as a repeat client. Thank you Doctors Eyecare!

Very friendly, efficient and thorough. Turns out my son needs glasses but they seemed to understand he needs time to process and they were not pushy at all. Very patient and informative with us both.

Excellent experience. Was dealing with a contact lens issue and they provided a far better prescription than my previous eye doctor. Thank you for the help
