About Doctors Eyecare


Doctors Eyecare has a long history in Sherwood Park. Dr. Knight opened the practice as Strathcona Vision Centre in the late 70’s.  Upon Dr. Knight’s retirement, Dr. Camp purchased the practice and in 2011, moved to the present location renaming the practice to Doctors Eyecare.   Dr. Mike Joljart and Dr. Kelsey Ford purchased the practice in 2016.

Dr. Mike Joljart

Owner & Optometrist

Dr. Mike Joljart grew up in Edmonton and graduated from Pacific University in 2000. He focuses his optometry on primary eye care, and has extensive experience working with contact lenses. 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. Kelsey Ford

Owner & Optometrist

Dr. Kelsey Ford graduated from Pacific University College of Optometry in 2000. In 2003, Dr. Ford moved to Edmonton with her husband Dr. Michael Joljart to start their family. Their son Gibson was born in 2003 and their daughter Sydney joined the family in 2004.

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. She has studied under the OMNI eye services in Chattanooga, Tennessee for advanced eye disease. The rotation included Glaucoma, Cataracts, and Macular Degeneration evaluation.

She is also an avid outdoor enthusiast. You can find her biking, running, or walking around Edmonton and our beautiful river valley.


Dr. Katherine Krol

OPTOMETRIST

Dr. Krol was born and raised in Edmonton and is also a Pacific University, College of Optometry alumnus, graduating in 2015. She is very passionate about eye care and practices full scope optometry. Dr. Krol has experience working alongside ophthalmologists in a surgical setting providing pre and post-surgical care. She is currently accepting new patients and provides care to patients of all ages. She has a particular interest in the treatment of dry eye, ocular disease, and the fitting of contact lenses.

When out of the office you can often find her in the mountains, out and about with her dog Julep, or trying one of the city’s newest restaurants.


Katryna

Manager

Katryna has been with our team of staff the longest. You’ll meet her when you check in at the front desk, when she does your pre-testing, assists you with contact lens needs, or does anything else required to keep the office running along smoothly. Katryna is a wealth of knowledge – check in with her for the most thorough answers to your questions. Don’t forget to ask Katryna for her opinion while you pick out your glasses; she has an eye for style too!

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.
