Due to the current COVID-19 outbreak our clinic has been closed for routine care. In order to prevent unnecessary visits to the emergency rooms, urgent care/walk-in clinics and family doctors' offices, we are accepting patients limited to the following cases:
-foreign material/particles stuck in the eye
-sudden vision loss
-seeing flashing lights
-seeing floating spots
-seeing 2 distinct objects when only 1 is present
-sudden changes in pupil size
-new onset of a wandering eye (sudden eye muscle weakness)
-glaucoma follow-ups and prescription refills
Our doctors will be on call and coming in just to see you so we ask that you reserve these appointments for urgent medical eye/vision emergencies. If you would like an appointment for routine care please feel free to continue making appointment requests online at nobeeyecare.com or feel free to email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.

We practice next to some of the largest and most diverse opticals in Lethbridge and Medicine Hat. You can also purchase eye wear and in some cases contact lenses after your appointments. Our specialty contact lens service includes: soft and rigid contact lenses, astigmatism, bifocal, post-surgical, contact lenses for corneal disease, cosmetic lenses, and difficult contact lens fits (fittings for those that were unsuccessful with another contact lens fitter).
Alberta, British Columbia and Saskatchewan health care cover the cost of visits due to medical eye emergencies. We see emergencies often more quickly than the emergency room. We have advanced eye testing and treatment equipment which results in shorter recovery times. We also have direct access to specialty services and can get you in for surgery much more quickly then most emergency rooms in the province. Often, if a referral to Calgary is required, we can book the surgery right from our office which prevents you from having to see and emergency room doctor to then later be referred to an eye doctor or surgeon.
