How much does an eye exam cost in Edmonton?

A comprehensive eye exam from Louie Eyecare Centre in Edmonton costs $135. This includes a 3d retinal optomap of the back of the eye. We offer direct billing options with Alberta Blue Cross and Green Shield Canada (GSC). If you are with another insurance provider, you may be required to pay at the clinic and submit your claim to your insurance provider.

While this exam may be slightly more expensive than other companies that offer $100 eye exams, the added benefit of the optomap is well worth the higher price tag. By capturing a detailed image of the back of the eye, optometrists can identify potential health issues that may not be visible with a traditional eye exam. This includes identifying signs of diseases such as diabetes, hypertension, and glaucoma. This means you can receive a more thorough exam and peace of mind knowing your eyes have been thoroughly evaluated.

In addition, a thorough eye exam can help detect early signs of eye diseases and conditions, such as macular degeneration, cataracts, and retinal detachments. Catching these problems early can often mean more effective treatment and better long-term outcomes.

At Louie Eyecare Centre, we believe in providing our patients with the best possible eye care, which is why we offer comprehensive eye exams that include an optomap. Our optometrists use state-of-the-art technology to help diagnose and monitor eye health, and provide personalized care to meet the unique needs of each patient.
