Our Optometrists

Eye care professionals specialize in understanding how the human eye really works, as well as diseases and conditions that affect your vision—many of which do not always have obvious symptoms. Eye doctors know how age and risk factors affect vision over time, and they understand the benefits and features of corrective lenses, both as eyeglass lenses and contact lenses.

All of our doctors take the time to explain the results of your eye exam, describe your options and listen to your eye care needs. Because maintaining good eye health is an ongoing partnership, we encourage you to ask questions and share your health information, which could be vital to monitoring, diagnosing and treating potential vision problems.

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.

In 2016, Dr. Joljart and his wife, Dr. Kelsey Ford, purchased Doctors Eyecare from Dr. Camp and are continuing to provide the care that patients have come to expect.
