About Us

Our Eye Care Clinic

Welcome to Tofield Eyecare. We cater to patients from Tofield, Beaver County, Ryley, Holden, Viking, Round Hill, Lindbrook, Camrose, and anywhere else!

Dr. Marc Kallal and Dr. Tiffany Lim are here for all of your vision needs and welcome patients of all ages, from infants to seniors.  We can also help with hard-to-fit contact lenses, eye emergencies (covered by Alberta Healthcare), and work closely with specialists to manage eye diseases and eye surgeries including LASIK.

Dr. Kallal and Dr. Lim believe in early diagnosis and are dedicated to bringing the latest technology in eye care to Tofield.  Our office is equipped with a retinal camera, computerized visual field testing and optical coherence tomography (OCT) - it's like an x-ray for your eye!  This technology allows us to manage and monitor your eye health and allows us to detect diseases sooner.  If a referral to a specialist is needed, we will work closely with the ophthalmology community in Edmonton and can arrange for a prompt referral.  


We offer many brands of eye wear so that you can be comfortable and confident in your glasses and see your best. We provide direct billing for your convenience and want nothing more than for you to love your new glasses and see the world how it is meant to be seen.

Our Optometrists

DR. MARC KALLAL 
DOCTOR OF OPTOMETRY

Dr. Kallal is very excited to be practicing in Tofield where he grew up and graduated high school (the days before Tofield had a Subway!).  Dr. Kallal did his undergraduate studies at the UofA and received his Doctor of Optometry degree from the Southern California College of Optometry.  During his studies, he developed a vast knowledge and a keen interest in the detection, treatment and management of glaucoma, diabetic retinopathy, macular degeneration, and cataracts. He was also actively involved in leading cutting-edge dry eye research.   

 

Graduating in 2013, Dr. Kallal moved back to Alberta and joined a large group practice in Ponoka and became a partner at Varsity Optical in Edmonton (www.varsityoptical.com). 

 

In Ponoka, Dr. Kallal saw patients of all ages and worked closely with the Centennial Centre for Mental Health and Brain Injury, one of the leading brain injury rehabilitation hospitals in western Canada.  Dr. Kallal worked with patients who had complex vision issues after suffering various forms of brain injuries, including concussions, strokes, brain tumors, and severe traumatic brain injuries (TBIs). Working with these patients allowed Dr. Kallal to further develop his skills and knowledge, which allows him to handle complex of cases.  

 

Dr. Kallal enjoys working in his home town and grateful for all the support from the community!  He is excited to meet all the new families that now live in the area.  

DR. TIFFANY LIM
DOCTOR OF OPTOMETRY

Born and raised in Edmonton, Dr. Tiffany Lim started out her studies at the UofA.  She then moved to Chicago and received her Doctor of Optometry Degree from the Illinois College of Optometry, where she graduated with honours.

 

During her clinical rotations, Dr. Lim took the opportunity to travel and live in various areas of the United States.  She has had extensive exposure to ocular pathologies while working at the Illinois Eye Institute, the Providence Veterans Affairs Medical Center in Rhode Island, and the University of Kentucky Department of Ophthalmology in Lexington.  She also has experience in pediatric care and specialty contact lenses at family practices located in both Chicago, Illinois and Austin, Texas.  

 

After graduation, Dr. Lim moved back to Edmonton and started working with Dr. Kallal at Varsity Optical in Edmonton.  Dr. Lim has been providing eyecare in Tofield since 2016 and enjoys taking the time to make sure patients understand their eye health and ensure all their questions are answered.

She really enjoys working with kids and is hoping to provide vision therapy services to patients in the area.

 

When she's not working, Dr. Lim enjoys spending time with her family and friends, trying new DIY projects, and exploring small towns like Tofield!
